I saw one at the local shop and was reminded by the ad at the top of the RBR home page. It looks very similar to the Speedplay system. What's the deal with it?

Haven't used them myself, but I've heard from many that they get pretty finicky after a short time. Great out of the box, but not a great long-term design.

I rode with a guy who had them for a while and loves it. Pretty light, no problem to get in/out, just clean and lube cleats.

Me? I'd stay with Bebobs, cheaper, lighter and better then Speedplays.

I've been racing on a set for two years now and I love them. The connection is very solid, it's pretty much impossible to unintentionally release, and they are practically maintenance free.
