Pros: They are a nice transition from platform to clipless pedals. Easy to get out when it starts to hit the fan.
Cons: Sometimes it is hard to get the eggbeater to attach to my cleats. It will roll and can take a bit of effort if I don't get in the first try.
Recommendation: Overall, I really like this pedal. This is my first clipless and I like it so far. Having a platform is nice to have during some sections of a ride when I am not comfortable being clipped in. I haven't had any other real problems on the dozen or sos ride I have been on. The eggbeater takes a little getting used to, but I am used to it now. At least it's easy to get out of at a moments notice. I
Pros: the platform is one thing that was appealing to me while looking for a clipless DH pedal. that and the good things id heard about CB led me to purchase
Cons: not to many dislikes until i rode them for a while...
Recommendation: i would not recomend these pedals. reason being, ive nailed them on countless rocks and they have unclipped, a few times sending me to hard crashes. im not usually one whos hard on their pedals, but after 3 rides the axles devoloped play and after 5 or 6 rides needed to be warrentied. same sit. with the new pair, took about 10-15 rides, but i was not satisfied. switched to shimano and had better luck, now im rockin a set of time z's and there amazing. have the big plat llike the mallets, without the riding characteristics.
