... and (in my experience of the originals, which are basically identical apart from the new wear plates) 'false/semi' click ins, shoe rocking/unstable feeling when clipped in, and a very un-nerving clicking sound and sensation of about to unclip when on the up-stroke during max effort sprinting.
ebayed mine not long after buying them.
I may be wrong but didnt the iclic2 fix a number of these issues above?
The only difference between iClics and iClic2's are the metal wear plates. The cleats got updated to help walking wear and to supposedly stop the corner tabs snapping off. But the old cleats are compatible with the new pedals and vice versa, so they could not have addressed the serious problems I had with them without a total redesign.
The half clic-in thing, is inherent in this new pre-tensioned mechanism. You dont need to be in the front of the pedal to force the back springs open to clip in. They can just "snap" shut on the back of the cleat even if the front is not hooked in.
I didn't investigate too much the issues with sprinting, I sold the pedals a week after it started happening.
