    Need help deciding between these 2 pedals

    Im trying to decide between these 2. These will be my first pair so I don't necessarily need anything too fancy, just something that will work for now and I could get used to riding with these


    Amazon.com: Crank Brothers Pedals (Egg Beater 1), Stainless: Sports & Outdoors

    OR

    Crank Brothers Egg Beater C Clipless Pedals Eggbeater Clip Less Black Spring | eBay


    Thank you!

    I may be wrong but (I should preface all of my posts like this) I think the Eggbeater C is the older model that requires occasional lubrication whereas the Eggbeater 1 is the newer model with sealed bearings.

    Being able to rebuild at that pricepoint is pretty useless. Plus you're more likely to wreck the pedal before the bearings get worn. I like Candy's for some platform and it helps keep them protected a bit but that's not your question.
    The only difference IMO that you should think about is the ebay ones don't come with cleats.

    These are candy ++ candy1 pedals :: crankbrothers.com ++ They come in the same levels/models as eggbeaters. Either 1,2,3, or 11
