There is always a mass debate between another bike cleat pedal company and crank brothers, and if you ride any mud, heavy dirt, wet conditions or simply don't want to service your pedals this is the way ahead. I'm running crank brothers on every bike, some of which are 10 years old this year. Love the candy, solid build, consistent cleat tension and next to no servicing. Have both the candy 2 and 3. Both excellent value for money.
