Another 6 months have passed, so it's time to rebuild my good old Eggbeater pedals. I've overhauled these things numerous times before, and it's a piece of cake. But I'm ashamed to admit that I can't remember which Eggie model I have :confused:



Q1) Here's a (dirty) picture, but you get the idea. I'm 90% sure they're original (2002) 'Ti' model, but I'd be grateful to any Crank Bros afficionado who can tell me for sure.

Q2) I've noticed the 'Ingus' bushings appear to be the weak point in the design, 'cos they wears out at least twice as fast as the seals and bearings. So does anyone know a source of the bare Ingus bushings (ie. aside from buying the whole rebuild kit)?

Call CB and ask for some bushings. Just tell them what you wrote here.

You have Eggbeater Mud edition.
LOL :thumbsup:
Actually, what you're looking at is excess grease that's oozed thru worn out seals. Definitely overdue for another rebuild-kit I reckon.

Eggbeater '02 video

Just answering my own question....
  • '02 model is identified by having a soft rubber endcap
  • '03+ models have an alloy screw-in endcap.
I found all the answers I needed here. :)
