    Shimano M225 and more recently Northwave extreme tech shoes.

    Or flats with 5-10's for the big bike.

    I don't have any receipt or proof of purchase since they were already installed in an used bike I bought. Seems like I will have to find more info regarding their warranty.

    Today I rode with the Mallets, they work well but the plastic casing of the flat pedal gets beat up pretty easy. I don't mind aesthetics, so this doesn't concern me. Bottom line, if you want your bike parts to look brand new and shiny, don't get them; if you don't mind dents and scratches, get them. They clip/unclip relatively easy and it is a plus to have a bit of support while riding.

    Shimano PD-M520: paid $35 with cleats just to try out the whole clipless thing....between my abuse, pedal strikes, sand mud, a random piece of barb wire they seem indestructible

    Lake shoes nothing special, cheap ebay buy to get me clipped in

    Riding my second pair of egg beaters now. They have a ton of slop in the axle and a lot of visible wear where they meet the cleat. great consistent pedal clipping in and out.
    However they do occasionally release when the bottom of the pedal strikes a rock (usually during a technical step up) It's more a distraction than anything but annoying regardless.
    I have used shimano's and other spd style in the past with better reliability than the egg's
    Do the time's release on pedal strikes as well? If not I may try those next.

    Shimano MD520 and Botranger Solstice shoes. The pedals were cheap from Amazon and the shoes were available in my size at the LBS for $80. So far so good!

    Crank Brothers Candy 1 pedals because i am a semi poor college student and wanted a platform so i could ride to school with regular shoes. I received some money for Christmas so i purchased those pedals for 40 dollars new with cleats and bought Giro Carbide mtn bike shoes for $50, at REI with free shipping!!!

    They have been working well together, i highly recommend them.

    Time X-Roc pedals and 510 Hellcats.... I love the feel and security of Time pedals and 510's are just comfortable and look cool!

    Shimano XT (2012's maybe?). They just work. Have always been a SPD person for MTBs, since the late 90s. Shoes I am currently using the Exustar carbon soled ones they had for sale on Nashbar last summer for ~$90. Very nice shoes for that price, maybe not worth the claimed $250 retail, but very nice for $90. We'll see how they hold up over time but in 6 months they've been great.

    Hey there, this is my first time on the forum. I would have to agree that Time pedals are the go! I gave up on candy brothers and shimano spds and finally settled on Time ATAC because they're great in the mud, have easily adjusted stiffness settings and are maintenance free. I have them on all three bikes. Only downside would be that cleats are expensive to replace and they wear pretty fast.

    Spank Spike on my TBLTc. HUGE improvement over previous (thick, heavy, Al platforms). With all pins installed, I'm glued to the pedals

    Been using the cheap plastic ones that came on the bike but recently I have been feeling the need to turn my shins in to hamburger meat so I ordered some Wellgo MG-1's
    I hope to hell my feat don't slip much because they look brutal. lol

    Shoes I have been wearing are some old Puma Track spikes.
    They stick like hell on the plastic pedals. Will probably switch to skate shoes though.

    Time Aliums and the ROC series do not release on rock strikes, and are crazy reliable. The lighter XS pedals do release on rock strike.

    For DH Pedals are Gusset. Thin and grippy and most importantly they are bright pink! I wear 5,10 Karvers My feet never slip off the pedals

    For Trails and FR. Pedals are NRG Thin and light. and grippy for climbing. I wear Teva Links, More flexy than the 5.10s. I tried the Tevas for DH but they did not grip as well as the 5.10s

    For Road. Pedals are Look KEO 2 max. Easy clip in and release. Shoes Specialized (very light and comfy)

    Always used SPDs as they work well for me.

    I currently use XTR trail with Specialized MTB pro shoes. It's a stupid combo as the carbon soled shoes are so stiff that the extra cage on the trail pedals do nothing. When I first got the trails I had older more flexible shoes and it did help a little

    I also have a set of XT race on my other bike. I don't notice much/any diff between the XT and XTR with the same shoes.

    I ride DMR Vaults because I have size 14 feet. They are plenty wide enough and have great grip. I also use 5-10 impacts.

    Time Atac Carbons, been riding 2 paris for about 3 years now, the cleats wear faster than SPD's but its a small price to pay.
    No play, loads of float, positive engagement and very easy to unclip in an emergency. I put these pedals down 100% to fewer crashes as i can unclip 1 foot and dab or bail to feet rather than hitting the ground.

    I ride Lake shoes usually but recenty got a pair of Dragon 3's, not impressed at all.... hanging out for Pearl Izumi X-projects which will hopefully be released soon.

    I was riding with the standard Crank Brothers eggbeaters. I just bought a set of the Candys and love them!! I find my cleat can locate the spindle better and engaging and disengaging have become more fluid. I dont feel any float or loosness like some complain about the spd's.
