Hi guys - new to the forum - Just wanted to say I have been using the Xpedo M Force 8 TI (the ones suggested earlier) and they are fantastic.... Previously used the M970 and M980 XTR's the xpedo's are just as good, lighter, Titanium.. and look fantastic plus they don't mark when your clipping in and out as they TI.. Would highly recommend. Plus I sent a question to them before buying and got a response within 24 hours that's customer service..

Buy them !

Also sorry forgot to mention - The question I asked Xpedo was can you use XTR M970 /980 cleats with the Xpedo pedals and the answer was yes !! However they do recommend there own ones but still compapitable.

My experience is mostly from what sponsors gave me and that was with the Candy SL and Eggbeater sets from Crank Bros. Generally, I found that they were great for 1-2 seasons of hard racing, but with a lot of use, especially in mud, the bearings got rough and the spindles loosened up quite a bit.

In the future I might try SPD's because I've heard good things and believe they might prove to be more lasting.

Times are also tempting.

Probably a stupid question, but were you using the post-2011 version?

I have used the post-2011 eggbeaters and found very little improvement. Yes the 2 sealed bearings are better than one bushing, one bearing but the springs still worked loose and sloppy and play still developed in the axles. Basically, they got far too sloppy to be nice to use after 3-6 muddy British muddy months

Thanks a lot for that info! Much appreciated :)

It seems the perfect pedal hasn't been invented yet...

Or the Xpedo XMF08TT if you want the same functional benefits of Time but not the heavy bricks on the end of your cranks :D

Went for xpedo m force 8 but couldn't find the Ti ones in the UK - ended up getting off eBay from Australia (I'm in the UK) last Monday evening. Just arrived! I think I have waited longer for stuff from Wiggle!!!

Cmon, top Time with ti axles and carbon body just 40g heavier than these, but off course pricier.

Fair enough :D The latest Atac 12's do look nice although they are double the price

Bit out of left field this question, but along the same lines. Which lightweight pedal would you choose for a commuter bike? When I say commuter bike I'm meaning a pedal where I can walk about in my mtb shoes without the cleats protruding such as I can do with my XTR's. It would need to be all weather but obviously not an awful lot of mud around! :D I currently use XTR's but thought that there may be something a little more 'exotic' and most likely lighter?

Any of the Shimano SPD series are about as good as it gets for walkability. XTR's are about as good as it gets in that regard. Other than that, Shimano makes 2 models of pedal that have large platforms as well as SPD cleats and can be used with cleats or with non-cycling shoes. While they don't work quite as nicely with cleats (sometimes insertion is harder), they have the benefit of being able to be ridden with non-biking shoes.

Exotic and good function simply doesn't exist currently, hence this thread lol.
