    These are great pedals - they would have to be to get me to switch from Time ATAC after 5 years.
    Easy in and out, unparalleled for shedding mud, light as feathers, simple design. You can get the
    2002 chromoly model on closeout for as low as $50 from a bunch of on-line retailers while they last.

    For 2003, Crank Brothers has 5 models available, from chromoly, to stainless, to 3 titanium
    versions, selling from $100 - $400.

    All the pedals have cartridge bearings and bushings, which are replaceable with a rebuild kit. After
    a year of use, I have noticed that the rebuild kit will be necessary because the bushings and/or
    bearings have gotten mushy and sticky in my 2002 model.

    Alternatively, Look has a license to sell a pedal with the same basic design, called the 4 X 4,
    which is chromoly with ring and needle bearings

    Any opinions on whether the Look design might be better in respect to bearings for future purchases?
