    I've used the older Aliums for several years now, with no problems. They have a reputation for being a good pedal for use in muddy conditions, and I agree with this.

    They do not have adjustable tension, which may be a problem for some lighter riders.

    I am on my 4th season with Time ATAC Carbons. I have not touched any part of the internals. They shed mud very well and are as smooth running as when I got them. I believe they have a sealed cartridge bearing at each end of the spindle. Before that I had Shimano 737's and had to rebuild the bearings every 2 yrs.The downside of the Time's is that they are heavy, mine are 406gm/pr on the triple beam. Newer XS Carbon's are ~325, XS Carbon Titan w titanium spindle ~270gm, ought to be getting close to a pair of eggbeaters there. Other minor downside of the Time's, like the Eggbeaters, is that the pedals don't have adujustable release tension like the Shimano's. Early on, I custom tailored the release by grinding and filing down the cleats for easier release and am quite happy with it. I'm considering getting Expedo Ti/Ti just to shed 200gm of rotating mass, but the Time's have been so good to me I don't want to!

    about eggbeater pedals. Why did you have to rebuild them? What was happening? I have ridden on mine for 2 years, 1st generation eggs, and I will repeat what I found with mine. The spindle in my opinion was machined incorrectly. They were a couple of 1000th too long allowing the pedal to wobble on the bushing and would probably destroy the bearing after awhile. I filed the spindle ends down until the pedals sat flush on the bushing and allowed NO wobble. I think they will probably outlast the bike now. Were yours wobbling on the spindle?
