I've been trying to get as much info on these pedals as I can. From what I have
seen so far, all these pedals in this series such as the Time equipe pro
mag, Equipe Pro Titan, are basically the same other than material they are
made from. I have been using Speedplay X2's for about a year and a half they
are great especially for the club rides but I still have slight discomfort
on my left leg/knee especially after some very intense rides and climbs,
which I attribute to the huge amount of float (something's can be to much)

I was told that I have typical signs of IT band syndrome so I try to manage
it by stretching and so on, and it works most of the time. I was told that
Time pedals offers a different type of float like a fore and aft and a
lateral, which just might help my situation I have a kinda bowlegged
profile. The Time Criterium Pro's look great but for every day riding with a
stop here and there will they be a hindrance also how durable are the
cleats.

Thanks
Mike

My daily ride during the week of about 15 miles includes 50+ stoplight opportunities. Needless to say, I ride in a city. I ride Time pedals and do not find them to be any more trouble than say Look's in terms of getting in or out.

As for cleat wear, I go through a front and rear cam once a year. That's on the foot that's one normally takes out for lights and it's mostly from dragging, and pushing off at lights/stops. Cleat's on the other foot generally don't need replacing.
