    Strength:

    Light, cleats are easy to walk in.

    Weakness:

    Not durable. Poor bearing design. Failure prone.

    Like the other reviewer, I broke a pedal completely in half between the bearings and the bushing (yes, bushing) at the tip of the spindle. I tried another pair and seized the bushing up, ruining the pedal. I then took the good pedal from each pair to make a good pair again (3rd pair) and seized a bushing up in that pair as well after 3 weeks of riding.

    All I can say is these pedals are utter garbage. I broke or seized up 3 pedals in less than 6 months. I weigh 175 lbs and was not even racing this season when these all broke. My last time pedals were the ti-magnesium models bought new in 1994...they lasted 18 years. I only replaced them to save some weight. What happened to Time?

    Strength:

    Light. Smooth. Excellent all round performance. Cheap now i-Clic has been released.

    Weakness:

    Nil.

    Thought long and hard about buying these after reading some poor reviews concerning failure. Checked with Time and they have a recall going on earlier models. Found an online shop selling models for $240 AUD and they weren't subject to recall. Bought two sets and Time i-Clic Carbons as a comparison.

    Don't regret it one bit. Haven't had any of the problems mentioned by others.

    Pedals are very light at 198g a pair. Cleat set up is brilliant. The range of float is perfect for me. Bearings are as smooth as silk. Oversized Ti axle doesn't seem to flex or creak under my 80kg. Very easy entry and exit. Platform is just the right size, no hot spots yet. Metal on metal cleat to pedal interface should be durable / reliable. Cleats are easy to walk in. Adjustable Q-Factor. Very low stack height (12.5mm). Look the business. Chief Financial Officer (wife) rates them highly too.

    I prefer them to the i-Clic Carbons but will post a review of those in the near future when they have their own heading.
