Ok, I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I will ask it again. I do not like my Shimano 520's, and want to upgrade to a crankbrothers pedal (upon good reviews). I am torn between the standard eggbeater and the cb candy pedals (for reference, both sl's). I do trail riding a lot, so you would assume I would want the candys. Otoh, I am starting to race in norcal. Not that either of those matter, but I don't want a bs reply like "eggbeaters are for racing, candys are made with a platform for trail riding..." I already know this. My question is whether any of you guys have used both, and how they feel in comparison to eachother. I've been told the candys do feel more stable with that platform, but currently I hate my Shimanos because its two sided, and on a uphill/downhill, when I can't clip in when I want to, it is very frustrating. And no, it's not because they are too tight. I think it also has to do with the shoes, which are pretty shitty Performance brand... So, the eb's have 4 sided entry. Easy, go with those. But, the candys center spindle moves with the cleat reciever (or whatever). So, it's not solid, like spds. Thats good. If you are still reading those, congrats. So, again the question is for the people who use/have used both. So please go to the bold print, and write as much info as you want! Thanks!
