I use mtn. bike crank brothers egg-beaters on my road bike. My main reason, is because I wear keen sandals when cycling, as they keep my feet cool. I see no problem with them. I do like my Look pedals better, when I'm wearing shoes as they have more of a smooth in and out, quicker, but these are fine.

My girlfriend and colleague, Jennifer Sage wrote that article on the truth about indoor cycling cadence. She's getting the word out, Yippee...she is also the founder of the Indoor Cycling Association, a fantastic resource for instructors and the author of the ebook 'Keep it Real', written mainly for outdoor cyclists taking indoor classes, and how to keep it real to their outdoor training. She's a former Master Instructor of 14yrs for the Spinning Program. She certified me many moons ago....

I have crank brothers on my mt bike. I was thinking of getting some candy pedals for my road bike. Does anyone see any draw backs with using the mtb pedals on a road bike?

Another good one! I've been contemplating getting the clips but didn't think I was "serious" enough of a rider to justify using them. I have the pedals already. I just haven't put them on my bike yet. Once I remove the plug from the bottom of my shoes I'm pretty committed. I bought the Candy pedals with mountain bike shoes. They are just more my style than the regular cycling shoes.

Great articles. Was reading them early this AM. Thanks for sharing. BTW, I was wondering why you didn't include the article entitled: Get Comfortable with Clipless Pedals??
