Twice before I swore off Crank Brothers Egg Beaters and went back to Time ATACs. First time the pedal body came off the spindle...on both sides! Then the retention bars got all wonky and would release at the most inopportune times. CB was going to charge me to repair them. I don't mind routine maintenance, but having to send them back and be charged for something I don't feel should wear out was a bit much for me.
But when they work the work well, best pedals in the snow, and they are so darn light. This year they redesigned them adding a needle bearing to replace the spindle bushing and improving the retention bars, and they are so pretty, and I hope I won't regret this...
