    They are both reliable pedals.
    Times have more side to side float when your clipped in which can be a very good thing if your like me and have dodgy knees.

    I love my Times, got the Z Controls and they're just a quality product, especially the bearings which give you a really solid platform. And I like the extra float you get while still feeling securely clipped in.

    +1 for times have mine in almost daily use for 18 months with minimal maintainence

    Another vote for time from me - used them for years

    Time all the way for me.

    I've been using them for >10 years and have experimented with CB, Look and Shimano in that time, mostly because Times are a bit on the lardy side but I always come back to them

    If riding an XC race bike is like touching the trail,
    then riding a rigid singlespeed is like licking it
    ... or being punched by it, depending on the day

    Time pedals are like cockroaches however hard you hit them they keep on running
