Crank brothers egg beaters are probably the most common with racers, but SPDs are popular too. I prefer the egg beaters because they have a 4 sided entry and MUCH better mud shedding. Very light too. I'm placing an order this week for a ton of Garmin stuff and I can add those if you need it.

These are my favorites
Shimano-PD-M647 pedals
They are pretty light you can use them with regular shoes or spd clips and even when you are clipped in you have some platform.
The shoes I use are Shimano MT52 If Ken can't hook you up I think Jensen is closing them out. (These are hightops but I think they have low ones as well.)

I say hook a brother up... Mind changed would rather have SPD's M424, that way to use as pedal platform or clip in...

I like the egg beaters, 4 sided entry is the bomb.

Ken I'll send you and email as I need some Hammer stuff for the summer.

I run some OG SPDs, I never had an issues with mud clogging or clipping in. I like that they have a bit more platform than the egg beaters but I've never used those so I don't know how they feel

Don't know what the weight difference might be versus the other platforms - but I use these and they are deceptively light. Work great for my purposes.

If you're a pedal masher then a fuller platform is nicer, but if you pedal the way you are supposed to (in circles) then you don't need a platform at all. Lemme know what you guys need and I'll get a price.

I like clipping out sometimes and having a regular pedal to stand on when something dicey or something I not sure I am going to clear comes up. I have PD-M647's I'm not sure what the difference is between the PD-M424's the PD-M647's are as the look similar.


Clipped in wheelie competition anyone

I kind of agree with this statement. I can always get wife beaters some other time.
