Never tried Time but like eggbeaters
I started with spds then speedplay, then eggbeaters. I have four pairs on two mtbs, a cross bike and a road bike. I never have to think about what to do with my foot. I wear my warmer mtb shoes on my road bike in cool or nasty weather. Once I brought one road shoe and one mtb shoe (both black, Shimano) to a trailhead and was able to salvage a ride!
Versatile and easy.
