    Anyone try the knock-off eggbeater cleats from aliexpress?

    There are a ton of sellers on aliexpress selling knock-off eggbeater cleats and was wondering if anyone has found a good option. Some buyers complain that the cleats aren't mirror images of one another which would obviously be a problem. They're less than 1/4 cost.

    $25 for oem cleats from Worldwide Cyclery. Is the suspect quality of a knockoff brand worth saving $20?

    If their cleats weren't made of warm butter I'd take your point. As things are I won't walk, but rather RUN at the opportunity to get some knock-off cleats.

    I wasn't even looking for cleats but instead cheaper rebuild kits. I have a growing collection of eggbeater pedals which will likely never be rebuilt given the cost of the kits.

    You make a good point. I seem to go through a set of cleats every season. I almost want to go back to Times, but my last set failed catastrophicaly. Shimano before that ended with a bent spindle.

    I have a duck walk which seems to make me go through at least two a season, and honestly I'd change them more often if they were $5
