I would stay away from the eggbeaters, I have a pair for my Mountain bike and the pedal rests on the soul of your shoe causing wear at the contact point, also very small portion of your soul carries the weight which can cause a hotspot on your foot from the pressure. I also find them a little too easy to get out of, which I would not feel comfortable with on the road, say while sprinting :frightened:

I am considering the Aero Lites but am not sure yet. anyone have them and use them for racing??

A friend of mine has the speedplays and likes them

Cheers

Zoey and Cadence read my mind. :wink: Speedplay X/1's are the way to go, light weight, and hold you firm.

Let me know if you get the X/1's and you can order a set of my alu inserts.
