Time VS Speedplay VS BeebopBAM

Has anyone used Beebop pedals in mud?? For those that use Time attacks, Do any of you have knee problems?? If so is there enough float in them?

I've got Time ATACs - but no knee problems - there's plenty of float - 15 to 30 degrees depending on the pedal (left or right)

haven't used Beebop
I have Bebops, who has Keywin MUDMANs?Jan Gerrit Klok = "TUFO-man"

I have a pair of Bebop Crmo's. It all sounded very promising, but they just don't work well in the mud. Furthermore, I soon got problems with the cleat. The spings seem to lose clicking power, after a while I just lost contact all the time, I need new cleats, but wonder if these will remain good.

Has anyone ever used Keywins MUDMAN? I am about to order 2 pair of MUDMANs. They seem like TIMEs with much lower weight...
I've been using Time ATACs for 4-year and ...SS_MB-7

I've been using Time ATACs for 4-years with excellent results in all conditions. I ride 12 months a year, so my pedals see everything from hot-n-dry conditions to slick-as-grease mud to thick-as-molasses-mud to snow-n-ice. Under all conditions, my ATACs perform consistently and reliably.

In efforts to shed some weight, I bought a pair of BeBops. Yes, they are damn light but I had to sell them after 2 weeks. They were very inconsistent in the mud mostly because the cleats would clog with mud. I'd either be locked-in or locked-out of them in all but the driest conditions. Also, there was no "clicking" sound or feeling when entering the pedal so I could never tell for sure if I was even in the pedal. Lastly, there was way too much float for my liking -- I felt like I was on ice.

I sold my BeBops and quickly went back to ATACs.
