Hey guys. I have an old set of Time ATAC pedals, in ridable shape but with worn-out bearings and in need of new cleats.
I took a look at some newer pedals, and noticed the Crank Bros. Candy 1, which sells for not so much more than the price of some ATAC cleats! They're also lighter than the ATACs by about 200g, which is nice because my bike is a little chunky.
I have a couple questions about the Candy 1s...
1) They have an inner bushing instead of a bearing. Is this an issue?
2) The outer cage of the pedal is plastic. How durable is this plastic? I am riding XC and occasionally barrel over some logs.
3) The cleats are made of brass. I remember the ATACs have a brass cleat as well, and the way they click out changes significantly (it gets easier) as time passes. Is this an issue with the Crank Bros. pedals?
4) The Candys have a similar mechanism to the Times. Do they also perform well in the mud?
Thanks, guys, for any advice you can provide.
