    HUGE difference

    Was riding time atac's for a while, sold them with the bike... the next bike I got had SPD's.
    I couldn't afford to drop another $100 to get new atac's(should have kept my old ones).
    I thought I'd try the SPD's, a little weird at first but I got used to it. they'd unclip every once in while when skipping/skidding, scary.
    Finally got new atac xs pedals and DAMN! So much better. got the float back, that easy clip in and out, the quality.
    Anybody else make a little change to anything on ther bike that made a huge difference?

    Do you happen to know the the difference between the ATAC XS and the ATAC XE? They look alike but the XE is a bit cheaper.

    i don't really know the diff.... (edit - the xe's are 6g heavier according to performance's site)
    check this link, performance has crazy pricing on atacs right now.
    you can get atac xs for $104.98, or atac xs with a "free" hat for $129.99... a free $25 hat. the xe's are relatively cheap at $59.99

    Best I can tell is the new XE is last year's XS. The new XS appears to have tension adjustment according to the new Performance catalog. Stick with the XE.
