Feel like crap. Loose and rattly. My Time ATACs that are significantly older are much nicer.

Cheap CB pedals are a fraction of the Time ATAC price.

BTW, I tried ATACs, but, the CB's were easier to use. YMMV.

Since we are talking clipless. I recently started using my clipless on my roadbike again.... So nice.

What is the opinion of Crankbrothers vs Speedplay?

I like the float of the SP's.

I have both. The CB's have float, just like the Speedplays. The CB's have a lower stack height and they're not as buttery smooth clipping in, but, are just as easy to use. Having used CB's, on my roadbike, for a couple thousand miles, I'm not going back to the Speedplays. If I were racing, the Speedplays, and the appropriate road shoe, make sense. Otherwise, the convenience of a recessed cleat makes the most sense for everyday or LD riding. As I've posted before, If you choose to try the CB's, go with the Candy, so that you have a platform, and at least level #3, to get a full bearing pedal. The level #11 pedals are just ridiculous in idea and price. As always, YMMV. :D

It fell off one time I was cleaning. I think it's in the top of the tool box now. The adhesive was a clear backer and dust. :lol3

Question...I am swapping parts from an old road bike to a used titanium frame I purchased at a bicycle swap meet....Do I need to "face and chase" the head tube and the bottom bracket eventhough the used titanium frame previously had a headset and bottom bracket installed? If it matters, the headset would be a Cane Creek IS type, and the bottom bracket is Ultegra 6500 era.

I doubt it. Do it if you *really* wanna make sure.

Put it together. Ride. If you notice something funny, THEN do it.

sounds good to me. i gotta try and get the old bottom bracket off. i got the non drive side cup off, but nearly stripped my 20 point shimano specific bottom bracket socket trying to get the drive side off....i will probably just buy a new bottom bracket, they arent very expensive.

You turning it the correct direction? One of em's backwards (and I always forget which!)

Oh, anti-seize is your friend. :nod Especially BBs in Ti frames. DAMHIK :bluduh

As I was working on the BB, I switched the position of the frame from right side up, to right side down...and i think i got all turned around and may have started tightening instead of loosening. I will give it another try tonight.
