Which Peddles: Coombe's or Egg beaters?Mauceri

I like both of these peddle systems from the looks of them. Anyone have an opinion on either/or and which is the better of the two?

Thanks
Depends... are you just looking for a light weight pedal?PODIUMBOUNDdotCA

From what I can see both of these are very lightweight pedals. If this is the reason you are going for them remember as a system shoes/pedals/cleats they are pretty close to most other pedals on the market. And your feet are where your energy directly goes into the bike so don't get chinsy on weight here.

But if your gonna be using them off road and on road the Eggbeater would probly be the way to go because thats what it was designed for. On road the Coombe's don't look bad but personally I hate the feel of having float.... perhaps its just my old Time ATAC's that made me hate it or too much time with no float on the track but either way I just don't feel like I'm getting the power to the pedals.

If it means anything I'm super happy with my Shimano Dura-ace SPD-R and 959 SPD. I like the secure feel (can get some float) along with a definite click when entering and exiting but thats my personal preference.

My 2 cents,
Nick

I'm looking at the Coombe's too. Not a lot of commentary in forums about them, but here's one I bookmarked a while ago:

Also, here's RBR review section for Coombe Pro. 14 reviews, very high performance marks, but lower value marks. Apparently most peeps think they're good pedals, but too expensive.
