Eggbeaters seem like the fave CX pedal. But it seems like the Candy w a platform might be preferable over the bare cage Egg. Whattaya think? Are platforms handy in the hurdy-gurdy and argy-bargy of CX? Is a platform easier to sail into barriers on while standing on your instep? Is a platform easier to find on a remount? Do platforms always clog easier?
