    Check this out, I'm looking forward to trying it out, Mobius Infinity Pedal

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...infinity-pedal

    Light weight, easy to use, simple concept, and looks like it'll have a very reasonable price on it.

    Thoughts?
    Hardrock 29er, Niner EMD9, Cannondale F29, Camber Expert, 650b Nickel all gone.
    2014 Giant Anthem 27.5 here.

    Awesome! I'm assuming the ones featured here are the lightest Ti version? Not bad compared to Egg Beater 11s at 174g (claimed).

    ...actually, those are even better that I first thought. Don't think the posted weight of the Egg Beaters include cleats and bolts.

    Have a look at the comments about those pedals under this Bikerumor article.

    The pedals are light but the way that they engage with the cleat means there could be a risk of them releasing at times when you don't want them to.

    I saw the video. I believe a troubling scenario could be on a steep decline, where your feet are heel-down. Combine that with a bump, and it might be an issue.

    Re the weight, the video indicates that the steel versions are 236g. Ti would be lighter, and if the weight still includes bolts and cleats, could be a challenge to Crank Bros.

    I saw them when they first showed up on kickstarter. Look very interesting but I can see them breaking easily or disengage when you don't want them to. I'll hold off until more people have tested them.

    One thing that strikes me as a potential issue is how if one didn't engage, the pedal is effectively a roller without any platform at all, which could very well have you slipping toward the top tube in a nasty fashion. Even the eggbeater has a platform of sorts. It's small, but it isn't a round bearing.

    I'm an engineer who is also active in finding new biking ideas. I designed kevlar spokes and tubeless wheels back in the 80's. I was a bit late on the kevlar concept, as Spinergy had just bought the patent. And tubeless were more than I wanted to tackle on a big scale.
