I've been a user of Egg Beater's for a long time now, and was perfectly happy with my new Egg Beater 3 pedals until I started to unclip randomly, and usually at a v. inconvenient time! The problem was that for the egg beaters to fully engage, they need to have a certain amount of contact with the sole of your MTB shoe. As yr shoes wear however, the engagement isn't as good as it should be, and you start unclipping.
This promised to be the solution. But other than sounding like a good idea, I wouldn't waste your time with these for the following reasons :
1. There are no instructions on how to install them. I am a mechanical engineer, so was able to pretty much figure it out however.
2. To get the inner sleeve on (close to the crank arm), you have to dis-assemble the pedals, taking the pedal axle out to put the sleeve on, and then re-assemble. Granted, it provides a good opportunity to check on the cond. of the needle bearings and re-grease them, but I'm not sure how many people are going to want to do this.
3. As for the outer sleve, it would only go on in one direction. That seemed ok, until after my first ride .... after returning, I noticed that it had fallen off somewhere (I had put in on v. firmly, and it seemed to be secure ...). The inner sleeve has also come loose, and is now flopping around on the axle ... I can't be assed taking the pedals apart to either take it off, or try re-installing it again.
So, not only have I wasted my money on these, I now have a pair of Egg Beater 3 pedals which are not useable. Being a fan of the egg beater system, and with more than one bike set up with these pedals (i.e. all my shoes have Crank Bros cleats), I'm kind of stuck with the system, so have switched to using Candy 3 pedals. Slight weight penalty, but so far I'm not having any of the phantom releasing issues I was with the Egg Beater 3's.
The blue color of the included rings that came with my 3's was also a bit tacky to me as my bike is blacked-out with gray/silver/chrome metallic parts as the accent color. Blue stands out like a sore thumb (as would the red color as well.) I liked the black color of the Eggbeater 2 pedals but wanted the better performance of the 3's so bought the better pedal even though I thought the color was tacky.
So I had hoped that using these sleeves would rid me of the ugly blue band at least. It didn't work out very well.
*If you need a lot of tightening up of the lock-up between your shoe and the pedal body this is the best way to do it. Sure, you can wrap tape on this area of the pedal but it will wear quickly and get all gooey pretty soon with tape sticky. If you have a road shoe with SPD bolt holes you will have a big gap to fill and these do it. IF you have a MTB shoe the gap will be much less and even the smallest sleeve might be too much.
*Taking off of the old blue (or red, yellow, or black included bands depending on which pedal you have) is very difficult. Use a metal screwdriver or tool and you will almost certainly scratch your pedals. Use something plastic and you will not have enough strength to get it off and the tool will bend. These factory bands are REALLY on there tight. So tough that you will stretch them taking them off so if you ever want to put them back on they will be loose and want to fall off. Or you could just carefully cut them off but then they will obviously be ruined and there will certainly be no going back. Crankbrothers doesn't sell replacement bands like the ones that come on the pedals. There is no going back...
*Putting these new sleeves on is pretty difficult too. The pedals must be disassembled from the spindle to get the inside sleeve on because the spindle is over-sized compared to the pedal body diameter. It's not a big deal, but it's a lot of messing around -especially as you might have to do it multiple times to find out which sleeve is right for you. Experiment on one side rather than doing both so once you find the right sleeve you can just do the other pedal once.
*The smallest sleeve is a BIG jump from the sleeve that comes with your eggbeater from the factory. I went from too loose to not being able to click in at ALL using the smallest one. IMHO the smallest one should be the SAME as the one that comes from the factory because you will ruin the original one getting it off as it will stretch out and be ruined -or break. This set costs ten clams plus -would it kill them to put one more tiny bit of plastic on it to replicate the stock sleeve? Crankbrothers doesn't sell replacements for the stock sleeve so you have to write them and beg one off of them. Really? CB does this kind of stuff all the time. I should be used to it by now...
*The sleeve is huge and ugly and covers up most of the pedal. Do a google image search and see what I'm talking about. I should have done that first. Even if it had worked for me I'm not sure I could handle the looks of the 'beaters with these ugly plastic sleeves on them. The metal eggbeater pedal is a work of art -this covers up that art something fierce. It's not a big deal to MTB guys who ride in the mud and don't care what their bikes look like but some of us use 'beaters on the road. Maybe I'm just too hung up on looks.
*The price is a bit much for an injection-molded bit of nylon/plastic. Seriously, these should COME with the hundred dollar pedals and not be an extra price. The stock sleeve should come with the rebuild kids too.
The bottom line? -don't buy this unless you really NEED it. If you have MTB shoes they probably won't work at all unless you are also using the protection plate or the shims that bring the cleat out further. At that rate your cleat will probably be touching down every time you walk too. Do you want that? Me neither.
If you have road shoes and don't have pontoons then this might be helpful -or even necessary. These didn't work for me and I wasted the money but I can see how they would be necessary in some situations. So for that I give it 3 stars. I'm tempted to give the product 2 but that might be a bit harsh.
