Crank brothers Egg Beater pedals have been my go to pedal for years and years. Just recently I found that Crank Bro found a way to make it better. They released a sleeve that fits over the ends and on the inside shoulder of the pedal. This is for the new pedal Egg Beaters. This sleeve provides a platform for your foot to rest on. At first it seemed like a gimmick. After logging some miles this winter I found it makes the pedal feel more solid and refined. The sleeve comes as a kit that has 3 different thicknesses of sleeves. So any shoe should be able to take advantage of this. The sleeve is a good addition to a great pedal.
It going to be a great year!
