Well any comments and advice would be welcome. I currently have some Time Equippe Titan Mag pedals and it seems that the springs are bent forward and this was hard to get my feet into on the road on a regular bike, but became a huge issue as soon as i decided to try track bikes. So im looking for some new pedals and i have the old Time Equipe Pro Cx shoes and was looking to keep a low pedal-spindle to foot factor. I was looking at the Speedplay zero's and was wondering if the ti version of the zeros is worth the money. And the weight issue would not be a problem seeing that i am 130lbs. Thanks and post back

Most bang for the buck, don't buy the Ti ones...if you feel that the few grams difference would definitley help you go faster...take a good crap before your ride.

I ride the X-1's. I can see no reason to limit the float. The X-1's are lighter than the zeros and have a shorter spindle than the X-2's. But for most people the X-2's are probably the best dollar value.

I have been riding the X-1's for awhile now, and my new Zero's just arrived today. I am going to the Zeros on the advice of my podiatrist/bike fit guru. For those of us with an externally or internally rotated foot, a zero-float pedal (and professional fit by a person well versed in pedaling biomechanics) is essential. On my X-1's, my heel moves by a degree or so during my spin, because my foot is 3-degrees externally rotated (I can't keep that position on a free-float pedal). He personally loves the Zeros (he fits Navigators riders, who are sponsored by Speedplay) although he rides some French pedal that I haven't heard of (it has all sorts of biomechanical adjustments).

The Zero adjustments don't only limit float but more importantly (to me) allow for an adjustable release angle. I matched the outer release angle with my MTB Shimano 959 pedals. No adaptation time or safety issues between switching bikes.
I would go with Speedplay zeros nmandy02
