    Time Atac Alium Question

    Anyone had a problem with these pedals sticking in your cranks?

    I'm about to pick up a pair of them and the only thing I've heard that really is going to be a deterrent is that some of the guys using them have had issues with them no coming off the bike when they want new pedals.

    Thanks!

    I have run the ATAC carbon for over 3 years of abuse and have had no issues. A seal blew out but was nothing to fix. I know they are not the Alium but they are similar. I have taken them off and on multiple times with zero issues.

    2 sets of Aliums - both have been fantastic and used on several different cranksets

    Bullet proof

    I've had Time ATAC Aliums over the past 5 years, ever since I've been mountain biking. Whenever I've taken them off, never had any difficulties. Between my wife and me, we have Aliums on 5 of our bikes.

    FWIW, they shed mud and dirt very well. I can have mud caked on the bottom of my shoes, hop on my bike, clip in right away, and pedal off. I love these pedals!

    I've been running crank brothers for about 5 years. When my they gave up I got another pair that lasted 6 months. I'm now using an old 5 year old pair of time carbons which I love. My wife has used the same pair for 6 years. We've decided to stick to one type, it will be times.

    Just use a tiny bit of grease on the threads and they will always come off easily.

    What Jerk Chicken said.

    Only time I have ever had pedals stick were the times I was lazy or in a rush and did not use grease at installation.

    With grease...never had a problem.

    You may have heard that the pedal body is hard to remove from the axle to grease the bearings. A 2 jaw puller would probably work if you ever needed to service the pedals. It's been my experience that most pedals will go a long time without needing any kind of internal maintenance.

    I'm using the Atac Aliums and they are very indestructible, even with many root and rock strikes.
