their new 7750 pedals get rave reviews. I've been riding Time ATAC Titans (yes, mtb pedals; yes, mtb shoes) for a few years and am debating making the jump to dedicated road shoes (found my favs, Pearl Izumi Vapers, on sale). Would probably go with the Dura Ace pedals, but still debating the real true benefits, so any user comments appreciated.

I've put about 1500 miles on my pedals so far and have had no real problems.

They can be a bit expensive but I got mine at totalcycling for about $150 AFTER shipping so that wasn't a big deal.

ease of exit/entry is not worth talking about. It's perfect!! - nice loud "click" during entry inspires confidence.

very light even considering the large platform

comfortable. once you get your cleats set up you're good to go.

walkability is second to none.

my one complaint: Although they're were super quiet for the first 1000 miles they've developed a distinct squeak in the left which will only go away with generous lubing.
If anyone knows of a quick fix they can chime in here !!

overall I'd give it a 9.2 out of 10

BTW- I've owned spd's, spd-r's and various look set ups.

well i used to ride my road bike w/ time ATAC's.. great pedal and no complain about 'em... but for road biking, road pedal are the way to go, it might me a little harder to walk compared to your ATAC's but they sure do give you more power per pedal stroke.... which means you can go faster w/ less effort...

as for the new shimano dura-ace 7750 spd-sl's... they are good pedals. very solid, stable, easy to take care of... while people may complain its lack of adjustments compared to the Time Impact or the look's, the true is, if you get of those pedals with lots of adjustments and don't know how to do w/ them, it is very easy (and likely) to mess up your knee...
