Cheers. You've confirmed what my LBS stated. He's actually an MTB'er who has also got a pair for when he uses his road bike. Said they are the best for getting in and out of. Will be placing my order soon.

Thanks for the info. Will still get a pair of Eggbeaters and then see how the new pedal morphs into something lighter.

Egg beaters x 3 Ti are light (185g from memory?)

Xpedo do a Ti/Ti Mountain force pedal - similar in style and clipping in as the Shimano XTR 959 pedal.

Xpedo's are 198g (I weighed mine and they were 200g exactly).

I've been using them on my MTB for a month.

I do 31 miles a day Mon - Fri on road (Conti GP 26 x 1 tyres - slicks) and approx 20 miles a weekend off road (Conti Twister Supersonics 1.9s).

Approx 620 miles of road and 80 miles off road.

I'm impressed with the pedals - no noticible flex - I weigh 80kg (put on 5Kg in the last 2 months - crashed the bike at 25mph and bruised ribs).

I got the pedals for $155 and value for money I couldn't beat them.
