    I got that book with that picture within it.


    I don't think it is possible to get those exact shoes....only 2nd hand.
    That book was printed in approx 1990 IIRC.
    They maybe collectors items now.

    I've got a pair in my garage! I expect they're a size 42.

    Well I remember some mates having them - very nice - having not taken much note of what Time did since - they don't use that system......hmmmm Look fella here......

    What they were good for was kicking big dents in cars..apparently - we were riding with a 'Milk Race' winner - his name escapes me at the moment....and the driver of a car tried to run him off the road, so a couple of rather large dents were delivered to the car with the metal cleats. Argument started, but one of the following cyclists (my mate) was a copper and saw the lot - driver buggered off.

    The shoes only accept the original Time cleat - so if you don't have a pair, try looking on ebay, there's usually a few pairs. In comparison to modern shoes and pedals, they're quite a bit heavier and the the distance between the pedal spindle and the foot will be bigger.

    So do I and for a bit of bike trade Trivia; many of the earlier Time shoes were infact made for them by Carnac

    These shoes also have the 3 bolt Look type fixing as well, which I believe the newer Time pedals use, so these will be able to be used with modern Time pedals as well as older types.
