If you're lusting for the 3-hole cleat, the only one I've found is the "fixed" or "0" float version. This was at the Crank Bros.site BTW. Don't know if they'll continue to produce these or not.Ventruck said:Moved to the new Eggbeater 1 SE's from Performance. Quite the difference from the previous-gen Candy's (aside from the lack of "platform"). Engagement/release is much tighter than I recall with the Candy's and so that noticeably helps with the notable excess float issue. I've gone back and forth thinking of trying another system but I got a great price for these, and loved fact that they've been improved upon in the ways I wanted.
I wonder if I could replace the bushing with a needle bearing, have me a cheap "1.5". But I doubt I'll complain about the bushing ever. Also lusting the 3-hole cleat.
I also have a pair of the older Crank Brother pedals that need to be rebuilt on my fixie, and a pair of shimano pedals that have probably ten times the miles on them on my road bike. The Shimano pedals still work great. The CB rebuild kit is only $25, so it's not terrible, but with most of the bike stuff I have, I get sick of if long before it wears out, not my CB pedals, though.strathconaman said:I use the egg beaters for CX and XC. I have two sets of the Road Quattros, but have gone back to SPD-SL.
The old (read, pre 2010) Crank Brothers pedals had embarrassingly short bearing life. I have Shimano pedals that are 10 years old and have never needed bearing service.
However, if you want to shead mud, the Egg Beater has them all...well...beat.
Looking at the image on the CB site, it looks like a little work with a saw could get rid of what looks to be a primitive 'float stopper' and make these work like their 'old' three hole road cleats.mick wolfe said:If you're lusting for the 3-hole cleat, the only one I've found is the "fixed" or "0" float version.
