... while it can be confusing at times, it's good to know that there are folks out there not willing to let LOOK (who now produces a Crank Brother Egg Beater clone under license), Time and Shimano sit on their laurels (albeit, at a premium price)...

Anyone got a set?

Be the bike.

these look great but the only thing I would be concerned about is there isn't much platform for a road pedal. How comfortable is it on a long ride? I am definately curious though?????

Wasn't there a company about 12 years ago that made a pedal that similar? I think it was Sampson and it was just a peg and the cleat snaped around it??? Or did I have some exceptionally good drugs in the 90s?

There was guy that made similar pedals. Just a basic cylinder and a plastic curved cleat that snapped into it. This was circa 85-87 maybe... Forgot the name. Never caught on - no float at all and might have caused knee probs if not adjusted perfectly.

I had those pedals for many years they were called Aerolite Pedals they weighed about 44 grams a pedal in the Ti version. The cleats were just a peice of plastic that snapped over the spindle. The spindle had a round piece of plastic that rotated over the spindle with no bearings. They worked perfectly but no float option so I finally gave up the light pedals.
