Identify these MTB clipless pedals!

Please help me identify these by make and model?
These came as a freebie with my Fuel EX 9.5, but I have no idea who makes them, or what type of cleat they take.
There isn't a single marking on them anywhere as to the mfgr or a model #.

Any help is appreciated. They don't appear to be SPD compatible, as the tension springs are parallel and straight. I thought maybe Crank Bros, but nothing in their current catalog is close to these, except the Candy-C but that's still not what these are.







PS, yeah I know they're ate up. If I can find what they are though at last they make a good backup, or I'll know what they are worth if I sell them or donate them to someone.

they're easily rebuildable and are pretty much bombproof

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

Some people consider TIMEs to be the best on the market, but quite obviously thats very opinion based. Personally, id keep them. I don't know about best on the market, but i had some saddle time on TIMEs for a little while and didn't hate them, not enough ride time to really know though. Besides, they we free right?

Personally, i like SPD's though.

yeah I probably will keep them as backups for now. need to buy cleats for them.
I'm using some dual purpose SPD/platforms on the Trek for now, so I can take short rides in tennis shoes (actually orthopedics due to the broken foot.. the inserts are formed to my feet now.. yay diabetes) so I have the option of my cannondale MTB SPD shoes, or just hopping on in the orthos and riding to my friend's house up the street etc.. seemed more useful at the time.
full-on cleated pedals on a MTB pretty much mean I need to lace up the right shoes if I want to go anywhere. I'm lazy that way I guess.

fair enough - first time I've seen a picture of that with Time pedals.

Crankbros seem to have much bigger problems in terms of axles snapping, bearings not being up to the job and so on.

My guess is he fell to his left. Pretty sure i would in that situation, but i fail at biking.

Also, you can see the spindle is still on the crank.

...if they're still brand new try and get your LBS to exchange them for some Time Z.
