Another Time pedal question(9 posts)

My Shimano 747's (and some stupid riding) resulted in a broken ankle for me on Labor Day. My 'cross season is shot, so I sold the Redline and am waiting for my Dream Cross to arrive.

Today I bought a set of the Time ATAC offroad pedals, as the unlamented 747's went with the Redline. How does one adjust the spring tension? I assume by moving the cams back & forth, but the French to English direct translation in the user guide was a little foggy on this.

Thanks in advance from the terminally blonde.

I don't think you can adjust the tension - make sure you put the left/right cleat on the left/right shoe; - one has an easier exit angle

sorry about your ankle - your absence was noted last week on the General board

you'll be much happier with teh Time's - made the same switch myself about 6 months ago

Thanks for that confirmation- I was beginning to wonder if there was a way to adjust the tension. I was almost tempted to try fiddling with the two little holes flanking the center point...

What did your dream cross bike cost you? Thanks, Jay

I don't know if what I'm paying is a fair comparison. I have connections with a dealer, so I get my stuff at cost (did some freelance for him, worked as his shop mgr, he's been a close friend for years, etc.)

The Dream Cross frame/fork runs between $1200 and $1300 retail. I'm spec'ing Campy Daytona and Mavic Cosmos wheels on it. The total built cost would probably work out to just about 2K retail for that particular spec.

If you think that's rad you should see my road bike. Colnago Dream Plus running Record 10, with Zipp 303's for "extra special".

My MTB is an older Klein hardtail, though. One has to draw the line somewhere.
