I have used both egg beater and times. THe eggbeaters were nice and light but the times give you the adjustable tension on the pedal. I've got a good knee and a bad knee and I must say that the times offer more adjustability to fit your body. A slightly larger platform and more float is why I stayed with times. Tough if any one is looking for some eggbeater SLs let me know I stil have them lying around.
