To clipless pedals again. I got some cash to spend but I'm not sure what to go with. My choices, since I don't want to go spd, are Time ATAC or one of the crank brothers pedal. Everyone raves about both and with good measure, I don't doubt they are a good pedal. I ride some pretty hairy, gnarly stuff going down hill, more often than not I put my foot down going around corners and what not. I would like something that it fast to clip out and fast to clip in but still holds tight while climbing. I know Konarider24 still has his flats with his SS kona but considering only one speed and lots of climbing, I figured clipless would be the route to go.
Time Aliums are $60 on Pricepoint. Time Z's are $80 The only difference between the Z and the Z Control that I use is that the Control version has a better finish. (The black finish on the Z's tends to scratch and chip easily, but it doesn't hurt the function)
