    Pedals: clipless, light, double-sided, and platform?

    I need a pedal that has these qualities:

    -light
    -clipless
    -at least double-sided entry
    -platform (when I'm not using cleats)

    I was thinking the Crankbrothers Candy X would be a good choice. Any other suggestions?

    I have candies, and they're great pedals, but the body isn't really that usable as a platform pedal because it's pretty small, and the inner workings stick up above the platform. Something like the Acid or Mallet might work better, though they aren't that light.

    Thanks for the reply. The Acid's platform does seem bigger.

    If you're not set on Crank Bros., take a look at the Shimano M434 or M545 pedals. Double sided entry, good platform, and the pedal mechanism doesn't stick up as much as the Crank Bros. Still, if you're planning on riding off-road without cleats, I'd recommend just a normal platform pedal. Tooling around town on a clipless w/ platform you'll be fine, but for serious use without cleats you need more grip than any combo pedal really provides.

    yea, I actually really like the Shimano pedals, however; they seem slightly on the heavy side.
