Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Time iClic 2 lifespan

If anyone is interested, the lifespan of Time iClic 2 pedals is about 5 months, or about 2000 miles. After that, even with brand-new ($35) cleats, they won't hold on. The mechanism still works, but the plastic is just worn out.

Pieces of crap

You may want to contact Time about your issues with their pedals. Something tells me this isn't normal.

BoSox is right, I have had no issues with the pedals at all (Over six months and 2k miles)....now the cleats on the other hand were just horrid. They have come up with a new cleat that is more durable now though. I think you just got a bad set of pedals. Contact them and see what they can do.

I'm going to, but I don't have a lot of confidence. I've read a lot about how these pedals are nice when new, but they just don't last. Of course I read all of that after I bought them.

completely different pedal. The Xpresso gets better reviews than the Iclic. Had I known more about them I would have went for the xpresso or the RXS instead of the Iclic. Again, I didn't have any issues with the pedals, the cleats were my issue.

They're just really worn at this point. The little stainless plates are gone, and the clamp that attaches the cleat is rounded off. I've contacted Time, and we'll see but they say on their site that they don't warranty wear.

I have a hard time believing that Time will say this is normal wear for a 5 month old pedal. Do you have the receipt?

I use the rxs. The brass cleat has a great lifespan.

haven't noticed anything unusual in my pedals, which are now two years old (and on the second set of cleats). what is the symptom? is the shoe slipping out with very little pressure?

My Iclic2 has lasted much longer than that. I also like them better than my Xpresso pedals.

Weird. I just sent my iClics (that I got in May) back to CC because the plastic doodad on the top of the pedal broke off. On both pedals at about the same time. Loved the pedal, good float, no hot spots like I get with my Keos... just not the most durable.

They're replacing them with xpresso 4's. We'll see how that goes.

Don't get scared, I've been on Xpresso 8's since April (~4000 miles). They're still going strong and I really like them.

Wooooo thanks for the reaffirmation! I surely hope they do great. Never been on anything other than Ultegra or 105 SPD-SL units and they have always been great.

That's frustrating that this happened to your pedals for sure, but all products will have one off issues. Before you lose faith and get all heated. Give them a call or contact them via email to have the chance to take care of you. That isn't normal for this to happen even though I'm sure you most likely are not the first person this has happened to, nor the last.

I'm not trying to take away that this is frustrating for you though.
