Brass Time ATAC Cleats vs Steel ATAC Cleats by SINZ

Hi, I'm totally new to the cycling shoe thing and I need to buy some new Time ATAC cleats.

There are brass cleats made by Time and compatible steel cleats made by SINZ on feeBay.

What are the differences? Which pair should I get?

I didn't know the SINZ cleats were out there. I've always used the Time cleats.

Looks like the the SINZ cleats will be more durable than the Times but not adjustable. The Time cleats allow adjustable release (two setting based on which shoe you put them on.

So your decision will be based on whether you want adjustability (Time) or durability (SINZ). I'd go with the Times solely for the adjustable release. They're cheap to replace every season.

Go with the brass- cleats are cheaper and easier to replace than the engagement springs on the pedal(which will wear through faster if using steel cleats).
