Time ATAC old school


Does this style time use the same cleats as the newer ones?

I can snag a pair cheap but I don't want new shoes as I already have the newer times .

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!

I'm still using my old yellow ATACs like you have pictured(8 yrs!). Will these ever die? I'd kinda like to try the modern version.

Funny you say that. I have the modern version on another bike and I'm getting the old school ones for a new bike.

Times are great...all my friends told me to switch to eggbeater but I still haven't yet. Times are heavy tho.

The cleats are the same.....and here is a thing....when I started using times for MTB 5 years ago, I got time atac alium. they were IMPOSSIBLE to release. When I got time carbon (with the cleats that came w/ the carbon), it was much better. If I use cleats that came with alium on my carbon Time, same thing.

Anyone know the answer?
