Currently running Ritchey Comp V3's which definitely fulfil the first condition at $30 but not the 2nd at 390g.

I was thinking of the Eggbeater Candy SL's but am reluctant to make the jump because it would require changing out the pedals on my H/T also. I saw some Welgo Wam 3 Ti's at pricepoint for $55 and 258g but the reviews of the non-ti version are absolutely shocking!!

Does anyone have a recommendation for a sub 300g sub $100 (preferably spd compatible) pedal that is relatively durable?

Well, you know you can get 2 out of 3 ... .

I don't know if you are going to hit on all three criteria. I've used some WTB stealth pedals that I picked up on eBay for $30. They're light (around 270 grams), they've worked well in terms of releasing when I want them to and holding when I don't, and so far they've been durable. With a plastic body, though, I don't know how much pounding on rocks they'll take. I figure at the price these come, I can have two pair and swap if I break one.

Good luck

A riding buddy of mine uses these WTB's (he's an expert class racer) and he really likes them. If you can pick up a set on ebay, you might try them.

I picked up a set of M7s at Supergo for $25. Claimed weight of 300 grams. The cleat mechanism is nice and smooth, seems to be well built. I like them but am probably going to return them. Eventhough they look like SPDs, they are not, which means I have to keep two sets of shoes, which I don't wanna do.

I'm probably going to exchange them for MG18s which are SPD compatable. Mud clearence doesn't look as good, but the weight and price are the same. They make a Ti version for $50 that comes in around 245 grams a set, IIRC.

Speaking of which, what is the weight limit on the Ti version? I can't seem to find any reference to any weight limit. I'm 195# but don't do any hucking or anything like that, and these are going on my FS bike. I'm seriously concidering going extra pimp on these and springing for the Ti. Is that asking for a jagged Ti stub in my leg?

What about

The Xpedo line? Decent weight as far as I can see but not a review in sight.

Anyone have any experience on these?

I'll probably have to pass on the stealth's - there are far too many pedal grabber/smasher rocks around here unfortunately.

... but the recently resuscitated Mountain Bikeing (Mt Bike - whatever, it's Bycycling's spinoff) tested lotsa stuff and liked the xpedos.

They look like a good price/wt/SPD combo.

But - it weren't me that did the riding.
