    Shimano M424 vs. Crank Brothers candy 3

    I have used shimano's since I went clipless a few years ago. Lately Ive been looking to upgrade pedals on my new bike, and have been looking at the Crank Brothers Pedals.

    Pros, Cons??????

    I don't really understand the Candy. It's platform is really too small to do much good, and it only adds weight and complexity.

    Personally, I used SPDs for years until my knees started to hurt. I switched over to Crank Bros Eggbeaters for the extra float, and they've held up beautifully, and great to use, are light, and no more knee pain! The only pedals I would ever switch to are the Time Atac pedals, which have as much float as the CBs.

    PM 1SPD. He used to use Frogs, and just recently switched to Crank Bros.

    I have used Frogs for years on my XC bike. They are great but difficult to re-clip if you dab.

    Have been using 2011 CB Candy 3's for a few rides now and they've been great.
