Going to experiment to see of they are equally fast like the articles in the fitness forum say. Crank Brother 50/50's.

Had a great ride yesterday. Pedals worked really well, cornering was insanely easier!

I don't really think people pull up as much as follow the pedal up as the other leg pushes the pedal down - unless you train yourself actively to do so - I make it easy - I just try to pedal fast - and then faster the next time - and so on

I'm probably a freak in that perspective. Been training for an endurance race next weekend that includes 8k ft of vertical climbing and I pull the crap out of the pedals :)

Did you have any issues re-wiring your brain not to try and pull up in the pedals?
No, in fact it's helped my road riding a ton. My pedal
Stroke is a lot more efficient now!

I'd recommend going on flats until the spring. I'm still running mine. Straightline Amps, awesome pedals. Just make sure to get good shoes. 5-10 and Teva make good ones.
