    What clipless pedals are clydes not breaking??

    I need some opinions on buying clipless pedals for me. I am 245 out of the shower. I have broken some pedals in the past. I don't know if I should buy extra pairs and keep them in my camelback or buy good ones. Thanks

    I've been happy with Time pedals. Their ROC ATAC models are the best I've tried so far. I am not quite your weight, but no lightweight either.

    I've done Shimanos (520s) but where I live they don't clear if you have to dab. I've also run Crank Bros Eggbeater C's and Acid 1's (base model, but not the MXR) and had no issues. I started off at ~260# and am sitting in the 240# range.

    Time ROC ATAC's. Bullet proof! Cleats don't last as long as spd but its worth it for the simplicity and float of the system. Good luck

    i'm rolling nashbar SPD's (came on the bike and work fine with my old SPD clips) with out problem and i'm a good 50# heavier then you... back in the day i had low end shimano and never had a prob with em (lost em while i was between bikes)... i'll go with shimano when I upgrade again...

    was riding with a guy with candyC's and he snapped it like a twig (guy was right around 200#)... he stepped on the pedal in a turn and snap off it came... pedal stuck to his shoe... he got to one pedal it out... we where JUST starting in the ride so no biggie...still sucked for him... i won't try em...

    still want to try the TIME pedals...

    Time ATAC Carbons have been great for me. When I started out I was on Shimanos (I was about 15 lbs. heavier than you then) & wanted something "better"... I jumped on the Times & haven't looked back. Hope this helps!

    SPD-M540s here, run them on both my trail and street bikes, have had numerous pedal strikes without a single issue and I'm 275 down from 300 (well, down from 400+ if you go back far enough, but I wasn't riding back then )
    Due to a lack of interest, tomorrow has been canceled

    Time Atac's or Time Z's. Either way, go with Times.

    SPD 520's are great overall pedals and they use the same clipless system on a spin bike, which is why I bought them.

    I'm 270 and use Crank Bros Mallets and they've held up fine thru last year. Had to replace the cleats once though.

    I'm 265, probably add another 10 pounds with gear and a full camelbak.

    I ride Time Atacs and they are amazing pedals, no problems at all. Pricepoint always has good prices on them and they do great in the mud as well.

    I've ridden Times and Eggbeaters and I have been 240-260lbs the past few years riding. Make sure when you buy either one that you buy the models with the stainless steel spindles. The models with the stainless spindles should survive any Clyde.

    I have been using Time pedals for 8 years. I run Time Z on both of my bikes.
