Comments about Crank Bros. Crank Brothers Eggbeater 2 Pedals:
For anyone who hasn't used Crank Brothers' pedals, they are great. They're easy to get into and out of, you can set them up to unclip at one of two angles, you don't have to worry about clipping into a certain side of the pedal and they won't get clogged by mud and debris.
Crank Brothers currently offers four Eggbeater models and this seems to be the sweet spot. The "1" model appears to be a slightly different, cheaper design and higher models offer small enhancements and weight savings that just aren't worth the price difference. Not to me anyway, considering I've used OEM sets of their "Candy" pedals and never had a single issue with either pair.
As another reviewer pointed out, there are plastic pieces but they're only the colored trim pieces and the end caps. The material used is entirely irrelevant and using plastic may very well be a weight savings thing.
