I am ready to move beyond my SPD's for something more biomechanically designed. Please have at it and let me know what you think of either one.

Thanks,
Rob

One important thing - these pedals would be for a road bike.

I've used both, and the only reason I moved to Speedplay was because of a knee injury I suffered about two years ago that would come back to haunt me if I didn't have the extreme amount of float that the Speedplays give you. I absolutely loved the Time pedals and really liked the feel of the big platform. It took a while to get used to the amount of float and "slippery" feel of the Speedplays, but now I love 'em. Speedplays are quite a bit lighter too if that's a concern.

preferred the Times (rode them 7 years) but moved to Speedplays out of necessity--knees needed more float. Then after 5 years I got annoyed with the Speedplay road pedals and now I have Speedplay Frogs on all my bikes--they actually feel more solid to me.
