I'm interested in hearing how your bearings feel after a few good rides. Mine have gotten bad enough that I've switched back to my I-clics.

I've got probably 1000 miles on mine now with some pretty hard riding (lots of intervals and climbing). The bearings are still nice and smooth. I've had no problem, and actually I like them so much that I ordered another pair.

Just got my Xpresso 8's in the mail today. Slightly overweight at 201.8 grams, but I'm not going to sweat 6.8 grams. Hopefully I'll get in a ride with them this weekend.

Been on Xpresso 4s for a month, def. solid and easy to clip in. BUT, has anyone else had false clip-in issues? On occasion, I hear the click and feel the pedal when pulling up, but my foot is not solidly on the pedal and rocks side to side a bit. Click out then back in and it's solid as it should be. I've heard from others that cleat wear can cause this, and my cleats have gotten quite chewed already on the walking surfaces (first time on time pedals so adjustment period), but I've only got a few hundred kms on the cleats. New cleats needed?

Just my cr*ppy technique then perhaps; on my ride this morning the clip-ins were much better.

I was originally worried about false clip-ins, so before I installed them, I actually figure out how to 'unclip' a false clip in in case it happened (not hard to do, but you would probably have to get off your bike). Coming off speedplays (and still switching between pedal systems for about 50% of my rides). I've stepped into the xpresso's in a lot of "not right" ways. I've never had a false clip in.
I do have one complaint, and it was something I worried about early on. I got on the bike from a different position than usual, and cut my leg on the sharp protrusion on the outside edge. I think I learned my lesson, but if it happens again I'm getting the file out!

I have put 2800km on my 8's now and with a few adjustments in the cleat / and locking in I have found mine have far exceeded the LOOK TI Blades I had that squeaked and the carbon body breaking .
I brought the 8's to test out prior to throwing cash at a 12 only to be disappointed.

Sounds like the folks at Time spent too much time designing behind a computer and not enough time riding their new design. The sharp edge issue has been mentioned many times - seems like they could have figured out that was not in the best interest for a rider.

Oddly enough, I think the pedals were designed to be ridden. sharp edges aren't an issue when you're riding.
Despite the issues I've had with mine, I'd still rather ride any Time pedal than anything else from anyone else.

You still have to get on and off your bike. If you haven't scratched your leg with the sharp edges yet, I applaud you. I have, and I think it is a weak point in the design (until I can figure out a way of getting on my bike that doesn't involve standing somewhere near the pedals first).

Had you considered dropping on it from above.lol And no,, I haven't been cut by mine yet, but I'm looking forward to my first opportunity. Which will be quickly followed by me filing off the edges and cursing under my breath as to how poor a design it is.lol

Sharp edges - YES.
I got a nasty scratch on my calf from the pedal. Didn't even feel it until getting home and into the shower. Had monster-sized bandaids on it for a week.

If you haven't had a time xpresso scratch you then you're next :)

Fitted my new Xpresso pedals on my training bike tonight and the cleats...haven't ridden them properly yet but the first thing I noticed is the cleats are a lot stiffer, the pontoons don't flex when walking. Clip in is definitely easier than the RXS's and there's more stability...also had to raise my saddle...

I don't foresee any issues with the pedals being sharp unless I crash and the bike falls on me... :roll:
