|Puzzled - what to do||moneyman|

|I bought these shoes from Sierra Trading Post for $90, size 45. Smokin' deal, right? If I had Time pedals, it would be much better, but I don't. I have Look pedals, and these Time shoes do not support Look pedals without a special wedge adapter that is, apparently, no longer available (according to the good folks at Time).
Possible solutions to the problem include: Return the shoes to Sierra Trading Post; Shell out another $100 - $150 for Time pedals; Sell the Time shoes and buy something else; Trade the Time shoes for Sidis, or something comparable.
This may not seem like a big deal to you, but it has really got me puzzled, and for some reason or another I can't make up my mind. Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

|Second that. Time on Ebay should be damn cheap.||Spoiler|

|Since Time has come out with a new Impact model, earler Time Mag and Criterium pedals should be available for less than $50.
Read the reviews on Time pedals just to be sure they're what you can use. If those shoes fit you, they, along with the pedals, should last you many years.

|i won a set of brand new, still in the plastic bag, Time IMPACT S pedals on ebay for $83.00 a couple of weeks ago. i used 'old style' Time pedals for about 10 years before switching and the new ones are great.
look for auctions by o2bikes.com. prompt shipping and as advertised.

|wow, J2 bought those also from STP and uses time pedals. he's fairly happy, but mentioned that they get a bit uncomfy yet after a couple hours. maybe it's "break in".
one thing's for sure: if you're keeping them, ya better start wearing them now. those shoes are so freakin' bright that i can see J2's feet comin' a mile before i can see the rest. ouch!!!
