I see that Mavic has based their new pedal lineup on the Xpresso.

My Xpresso's are making some serious creaking noises, not sure what's going on but can't see any cracks or damage in either the cleats or pedals...I might take them off and re-grease the threads to see if that helps...?

The mavic version looks a million times better without all the red.

Hmm, I can feel creaks and clunks resonating through the pedals into my feet...sounds awful at times...I think it's friction on the composite piece in the cleat which, used to be brass in the older RXS cleats...

I may go back to RXS's if I have to...

It's the steel plate rubbing the cleat. The old Impacts suffered from it as well. Just scuff up the part of the cleat that contacts it (basically, make it not smooth) and it will go away.

It was 2 or 3 generations ago that Time had the cracking issue so I'm not sure how relevant it is now. I used Times all through the 90's and then off and on. I did use the iClics but finally tried Speedplays because I felt like the forced re-centering of a Time pedals might be causing issues with my knee. Speedplays require more maintenance and setup but were a revelation in preventing knee issues and ease of use. I started on the original Look pedals in 1984 and have had everything in between but all I are recommend now are Speedplays.

I ended up tightening a slightly loose chainring bolt and it all went away... :thumbup:

i moved from speed plays to the expresso 8's on my everyday bike for uni and general riding and haven't had any issues until hit riding home last month. Now have some 6's on it.

perform great, haven't had creaking like others, no issues with build quality either. One thing though is prepared to get your legs cut a bit if you miss or walking it along....................... but from what i've read about time pedals thats a common occurrence regardless of the model. :thumbup:

Has anyone tried replacing the Platform on these pedals?

I have the 8's, no problems ~ 10'000kms and scratching my head on how it could be done?

Apparently you can buy them -

I have both the 8's and the 12's. It appears there are two small nuts that get removed from the bottom of the pedal and then the plate just gets lifted off. I have over 6,000 miles on my 12's and the original cleats and the plates show where but should be fine for quite some time.

I purchased the Xpresso 12s last summer and really wanted to like them; the weight is amazing and unlike some, I love black and red. But they just didn't WORK very well! They did not engage as easily as I had hoped or been lead to believe, the float was not very smooth and they just didn't feel very solid underfoot. And yeah, the back edge cut my calf, too. So I dumped them on eBay and went back to my reliable if somewhat heavy Shimano DA 7900 pedals. Being a WW, I have the new Look Keo Blade Ti 2s on order.

Have ridden the 12 a few times now. I don't seem to be able to clip in as easy as the iClic it replaced. They do feel much more snug and with less movement of the cleat while in place. Love that. They do turn easy. Time will tell.

One thing to mention for the life of me I can comprehend why is even there is the very sharp corner in the middle outside edge of the pedal. I can see someone cutting their leg pretty good with this thing
