Thanks Antoine!
I ordered a couple sets of the black, which should look better with my carboned-out matt black R1.


Okay, delivered yesterday. 5 day delivery from France. Not bad!

Any update on cleat wear? The only thing holding me back from getting a pair are the horror stories on rapid cleat wear.

no problems at all with the cleat wear, the walking pontoons wear just like any other peadal, the section of the cleat that locks into the pedal doesn't wear at all

Agree on the cleat wear. I do have a several pairs of shoes. Probably have well over 10K on the cleats that came with the pedals and still work fine.

On a slightly OT question-- anyone know if these (ti) spindles will work on the xpresso pedals-

I would guess no, Xpresso's do not have a flat edge to tighten them onto the cranks so maybe these are for older Time pedals..new Time's are allen key only...

I think it will be hard to replace the spindles, as the bearing cap requires a proprietary tool to get it off, I asked Time and they said it's not meant to be opened.

probably just as easy just getting the Ti version of the Xpresso

Yep, but the scar has slowed down considerably the rocket like rise of my supermodel career. Besides, with all the years of judo, karate, and Japanese jui jitsu training I'm already the ultimate weapon LOL........

I've ridden the Time RXS and I-Clic pedals and found them the best for my slightly dodgy knees (certainly better than pedals with lots of free float). Recently I bought the Xpresso 6 pedals and thought great, lighter than the I-Clics, and with a bigger platform, however the right-hand bearing has gone after just 100 miles. For comparison the bearings on the RXS pedals sitting in my garage still feel fine, and those on the I-Clics are smooth on the left-hand-side, and a little bit worn on the right-hand (no play, just a bit rough). I've sent the pedals back for an exchange, but wondered whether the models higher in the range might have better bearings and/or seals?

I bought some time ago the Xpresso 12.
I was not impressed. They were looking like cheap ass plastic childrens pedals made for a childrens bike.
Even the (12) print is done poorly.

Out of the box one pedal was seemly ok while the other had a click while turning the axle. Tried to examine the phenomenon, didnt matter how I was holding the pedal, upside down/diagonal. The click was Always on the same moment in the turning.

Besides that one of the cleats was not right produced. maybe you think its made from one piece but in fact it exists from 2 pieces pressed in eachother.

Then the fact they have sharp edges. How is it possible that a manufacturer of an A-brand with a history in pedals, makes such a beginners fault in designing? Idiotic.

I have send them back for a replacement, which i would get before the weekend the shopowner told me. They had in stock and would send me immediately a new pair. After 10 weeks waiting several mails and phonecalls I gave up and asked my money back.

Some later I decided to order elsewhere and because I had doubts I decided to buy a cheaper pair, the Xpresso 8. i bought the Pro version, which should come in total black. However I received the normal 8 red ones. After a few mails I finally managed to bring over to the shop that i ordered black ones and not red. The respons was that they had the pro's only in white, if I wanted the white ones . . . . . :shock:
Nooooo. Sailant detail: The red ones I received had a flaw. one had a braun print on it and the other white print.

Really, Time has a very mediocre quality control. And a stupid design department too.

Finally, I gave up the Xpresso model.
Maybe in the future i will try their next model, when they have found their brains back . . . .

As I posted above I'd be interested to know whether the bearings/seals get better the further up the Time Xpresso range you go.

I agree that cleat wear is good. Going on well over a year and still look very good.

Hi,

AFAIK on the previous line of pedals (RXS) the bearings were all exactly the same.
IMHO is not cost effective for a manufacturer to use different quality bearings of the same type.

Ciao, ;)

A few people have posted about the bearings going, do you think Time might have had a faulty batch?

I'm at a crossroads. After 15,000 miles my RXS Carbons are ticking and I want to replace.

The sensible part of me wants to replace with the exact same thing. The RXS's have a great feel and cleats last forever (4-6k miles, often changing just because).

I keep getting sucked into looking at the new xpresso 8. For those that have experienced fast cleat wear with this model, what is the symptom? Noise, hard to clip in or out? Where does the clear wear?

Thanks.
