Have any more people in here tried the new times out yet? I think that most of the reviews that I have read so far are very favorable. It looks like it will be much cheaper to purchase them from totalcycling.com or velostore.com, than anywhere that I have looked in the states. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

I'm a Time pedal faithful user (for at least 10 years). I like the solid platform, float, and pedal-to-crankset feedback feel on my feet.

I've read the mostly-positive feedback on this board for the last month or so. So, I broke-down and ordered mine through Totalcycling.com last Tuesday.

I'm anxiously awaiting for my new pedals.

I've been using the mid range magnisium pedals with the steel axle for about 500 miles. Nice solid platform comparable to the looks I've been using for years. The Q-factor gizmo doesn't seem to be too well thought out but it does seem to work and gives you a very low Q. I am using Sidi shoes with the look adapter. I didn't like the short screws they supplied so I went to the hardware store and got longer ones which hold the cleat very securely. It seems like the cleat has to lay perfectly flat so they supply a shim. Somehow on my right shoe only I don't know if it's the shoe or the shim or the cleat I ended up with a little bow in the cleat. This effected the clip in initially but seems to be getting better as the cleat wears in. I might try a time adapter plate later to see if I get a more accurate cleat,adapter,shoe interface. I like the cleat overall. It seem durable so far and I believe will outlast a look cleat. The pedals themselves are very minimalistic. The finish doesn't seem as good as looks but the light weight is noticable and the float feel better to me than looks.

I have ridden Time pedals since 1988! I did use Campy Pro-fit in 2001 for four weeks (5 outdoor rides) before quickly switching back to Time. The new Impact is much easier to clip into and out of than the Equip pro model it replaces. The adapter for non-Time shoes is wafer thin not like the old bulky and heavy adapter. I use Time shoes and I am totally happpy with this upgrade. Will upgrade my indoor trainer bicycle to Time Impact pedals in the near future. The platform is still wide and comfortable on the new Time Impact pedals.
