first ride on my dominator 2s/egg beaters, and I can say my next pair of shoes is DEFINITELY going to be Sidis.
anyway, it's really too early to say much, but the egg beaters were very easy to engage. and they were light enough for this weight weenie. someone was asking earlier about a good pedal/shoe combo for < $200. this would be it - you can get dominator 2s from bitz4bikes on ebay for $89 (sigh ... wish I'd noticed earlier).
anyway, there's supposed to be 6 degrees of float. I'm a speedplay guy normally, and I could barely feel the float. could I have set the cleat up wrong? I mounted the cleat at maximum twist.

Wait a minute:
I am a mountain biker too, and would like to know if these are excellent pedals for the road, they are made for mountain right? -that would save me from having to buy two pedals! Post if anyone would recommend or not recommend eggbeaters for the road.

I'll let you know after a few months. these are my 'cross pedals; I'm trying to get used to them now. they're certainly light enough.

Some people do use them for the road. Crank Bros. is going to come out with a road cleat soon, I don't know how it will be different.

I have been using the Eggs for my MTB and Road bike for several months now. Working great for me.

Hey, how are the egg beaters working out for your road bike? Anything you could tell me? Are you using the special cleats? Any info would be appreciated!

Thanks, Brandon
