If you out some oil (White Lighting Epic is what I use) at the edge of the eggbeater on both sides and on the spring this will stop this from happening!

These break in this area through lack of service and maintenance Ive done the same and since Ive been trying this seems all good. any metal not looked after will degrade and break at the stress point id not looked after.

Let the flame begin:madmax::thumbsup:

Exactly what kind of maintenance does solid metal need?

OT, but since you brought it up, what do you guys think of the Time Z platform pedals? Similar to the Mallet/Acid, but without the eggbeater-type mechanism (obviously). Any thoughts?

How much maintence does your chain need metal on metal?

I probably do mine after a very wet ride or if using exessive water when cleaning, its a drop of oil a few months Id do it no matter what the pedals.

For me I like CBs cause I can rebuild them pull them aprt simplyand replace the bearing and its cheap, Ive had my mallet ms for over 2yers broken one spindle in the same place, and I asked them diagnose why they said drop of oil now and agin and you'll bve problem free.

I ride hard and 200lbs of Kiwi beef.

Plus my knees are far more important than the cost of a pedal which causes legiment problems.

Hay everyone to there own!

I said it because two of my bikes, the two that get the sh1t beat out of them the most both have them on right now.

The only issue I've ever had is a bent spindle or two. Bout a $12 fix.

A chain is not solid metal. A chain has pivots and moves. The spindle does not move, it's solid metal, and the pedal body rotates around it on the bearings. Do you put oil on your bike's top tube? How about on your handlebar?

I've been through 3 CB Cand'ys each lasted about 3 months. So I bought Times, and I don't even have to think about my pedals any more. Nice!

Well, CRAP! Guess I will have to keep my trusty, but very heavy, Shimano 646's a little longer.

3 years on cb's, 5 pair, no issues. 2 eb sl's, 1 candy sl. 1 eb twin ti, 1 mallet m but im a lighter guy who doesnt slam the bike around too much off big drops. maybe its just a weight vs impact thing.
