One other question, just making sure: are the old rxs cleats incompatible with xpresso's?

Would be dandy if you could use the old cleats on the new platform.

EDIT: I see now they are not compatible.

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.



I have used time for 20+ years. In the last year I have moved from RXS to expresso. I personally have not found too much difference in the amount of wear between the two different cleats, If anything the I found the RXS red cleat lasted the longest and the expresso is better than the RXS blue. What has made a huge difference is using the café cleat covers. I use them religiously when going to the garage to get my bike and re-fit them the second I get home before walking more than two steps. Now I find that I am only getting a small amount of wear on my left, the foot I disengage first and will put down if I stop at a junction.

I had been using the RXS Ti/carbons and was gonna go for the same in the expresso, but first purchased the expresso 6 to try them out. I never bothered with the more expensive pedals after that, the 6's have been superb, they are super light compared to the equivalent RXS model at the same level and cost a fraction of the price of the Ti or carbon models.

I agree with the previous post, I have Xpresso 6's and can't see much reason to buy the more expensive options...other than some sharp pedal edges I like them a lot...

Their fine. Cleat wear isn't really an issue unless you're doing it wrong.

Not sure if it's been mentioned, but you can now buy cleat covers for Time/Mavic.

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

Yep - I've cut my leg up. Then got a file out, and filed the outside corners down to a 5mm rad - I recommend this as the first thing you do when you buy a set.



How do you go about filing the pedal? Just a straight file along the edge?
What kind of file?

You would think I would learn my lesson but I currently have 5 cuts on my left calf, 3 of which will probably scar :oops: :shock:
Think it was because I was so used to my RXS' and I don't move my foot out far enough when unclipping!

Cheers

I found an interesting review with pictures by bikeradar. (pictures below linked from that article)

New cleats:

Cleats after (what they say is) 3 months:

No idea if this is excessive, or how many miles in that period, or if this is representative. All I know is that I have 4,000+ miles on my current RSX cleats with barely any wear. I clipped in my shoes and tested for wobble at the platform - none.

It's such a good design. So abnormal for me to pass up the latest, but I just got in a new set of RSX pedals in leiu of the xPresso. hope they last me as long as my previous set.

^ None of the worn surfaces on these cleats are contact points with the pedal. There would not be slop on the pedal from this. They just wear when you walk on them. Not an issue.

Cheers

@ natiedean24

I ride in multiple sets of shoes but my oldest cleats which go back 14 months look nothing like that. When on the bike I do very little walking since you should be riding your bike. Those look like cleats that someone took a long walk home after a mechanical.

IMHO

Man, that's ridiculous. Is dude like hiking down a gravel road before and after each ride? Get some mountain bike shoes and pedals dude. :idea:

Yeah cyclocross on road pedals is a bit silly.

My cleats last at least 1 season then are replaced preventatively. But then I have no gravel on my drive and almost never drag or slide my foot on the ground. Key is to stop the bike then unclip. Simple.

Bumping an old thread. My pedals started making a clicking noise, just the right pedal. Pretty bummed since I really like the pedal system.

Is there play in the bearings? If so contact TimeUSA and they will replace the bearings. Turn around time will be about a week.
