    I had eggbeaters for the past year and a half and just felt that I needed more platform, so I purchased a pair of Mallets a few weeks ago. I love them. When unclipping and needing to get back on power, you don't need to fuss with getting clipped back in. I also feel more secure and more capable when getting some air.

    Here's why I no longer will ride Crank Bros Mallet C's..........btw it's the same axle used throughout the dh/fr line.

    I like bikes.

    Love my Z's for pretty much every kind of riding. . . beat them to shite riding in the rocky arizona desert for over 2 years and theyre still fine. . . beating them up in Tahoe now. . . They take hits that I'm sure would blow up other pedals especially with a hack like me behind the bars. Simple mechanism as well.

    Stay away from Crank Bros EVERYTHING if you ask me - have yet to see anything of theirs last long! The Times work great but I have them on my trail bike - wouldn't dare be clipped in for FR.

    Have FUN!

    I ride Time Z's for everything... they rock and are super reliable in all conditions. I usually buy a new pair every year just to be safe and rotate the old ones to my trail bike... IT'S WHATEVER YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH!!!

    Well, I too will throw my vote out there for the Time Z pedals. After a few too many broken Crank Bros/ axles I had to switch and haven't looked back.

    I wish I had cool shots like KillingtonVT has to share...but alas, I'm a spode. ;-)

    It's not the jumps or drops that are a problem being clipped in (probably easier in fact) but the skinnies - suicidal clipped in if you ride anything taller than you and narrower than a foot wide!

    Have FUN!

    I currently run Time Z's. I'm going to swap over to the Mallets so that I can get a little larger range of motion and a larger platform. I do however love the Time's for trail riding.

    Yet another vote for Time Z pedals. I've gone through multiple CB pedals including the mallet. I broke one of my CB Acid pedals in just under an hour. I thought it was a fluke and after getting it repaired broke them after 3 rides. I asked the tech what the deal was and he told me that I shouldn't be riding them in rock gardens. I sold the replacement set they sent me and went back to Time pedals.

    Basically after many years on Crankbros pedals (eggbeaters, 2 Ti Eggbeaters, 4 Ti Eggbeaters, Mallets etc) I now wouldnt ride them if I was given them for free. They are absolute P'sOS...

    Have Time pedals on all my bikes now, and never had a problem as yet.....

    CrankBros really need to sort there sh!t in regards to their pedals......
