    Time ATAC's are excellent pedals. Similarly Crank Bros' Eggbeaters are decent

    I have Shimano SPDs (424 and 505) on both of my offroad bikes right now. They were cheap and they work fine (not in mud though) but they aren't light. I think one pair is 350g and the other is over 400g. I'm not in any rush to do it but I will be swapping them out for the Eggbeater SL.

    Good choices. They function in almost exactly the same manner as far as their retention system is concerned. I absolutely love my Times

    It's up to you Mcoine.

    You can choose any pedal you want. I just like my pedals.

    Hope you have fun on your new pedals,
    Alex and Foxy

    I agree Time ATAC.
    light weight is a relative term. I think the XS is a light pedal and some think the 322 grams is a tank. the XS are an excellent pedal unless you are into anything that requires a bigger platform than it, then the ZControl is the way to go TIME wise but they weigh more.

    You can laugh at this.. I have been using a set of wellgo clipless pedals for about 8 years, and they have held up well. I got them for free too, from a friend who took them apart and couldn't get them back together. he gave me a pile of parts and in an hour I had clipless pedals! But now its time to move on.

    Glad to be back. You're about the third to say something to that effect.

    I agree the XS is a great pedal. I'm slating them for my "Big Boy Roadie" project bike

    I have the carbon. not the titanium ones but the carbon/chromeoly spindle ones.
    I cant afford the carbon/titan and they wouldnt hold up to my fat self. they also only shave a few grams for over $100 more. Performance has the XE for under $80

    Another vote for Time ATACs. I'm running the earlier generation ATACs simply because they haven't given me any reason to upgrade. If I manage to find some surplus cash or build up another bike, I'll definately go for the ATAC XS.

    I have been using Time Atac's since they first came out, and still using the original pedals. Don't see any reason to change
    Prerace, I use a misplaced faith in my innate ability, with a dose of needless optimism. For recovery, I use self-delusional techniques.

    As much as I hate to send more business to Shimano, the 520 are a good value. They work well and at around $50 they are cheap. I'd love Eggbeaters but when you need 9 sets at $100 per, well, I like sleeping in a bed too I can hear the sound of the rolling pin upside my head now. Ow.

    I had used shimano 520s. They are good pedals for that price. Easy entry, and exit, and never had problems in 6 months or so. I still keep them for back up. One pair weighs 380 grams though.
