What pedals are people using for CX these days? I haven't raced for two seasons and used Shimano PD-M520 pedals. I use these on my fixed gear and am building up a new CX bike currently. I've considered XTR pedals and ideally am on the lookout for M970s and not the current M980s as I've read they shed mud better.
Are there any others to consider? Crank Brothers look like thy shed mud well but that'd mean another pair of shoes (perhaps the plan anyway).
