    My most expensive bike shoes came unglued . Could be dangerous.

    My most comfortable shoes are my Time shoes. THose red and yellow ones. Goes great with my clubs 'catalan' colors. ' BOught them maybe a year ago. But, the soles came totally unglued. This could have caused a major incident while on the road, should they have come unglued while standing.
    I bought them on sale. Like 40=50% off. So, a decent price. They are my most comfortable bike shoe.
    For such expensive shoes. To come unsoled with one years' riding? Sort of disappointing.
    Took them to a cobbler tho. Re-glued the soles. Plus nailed them shut. THink they will be safe to use, now. They are so comfortable, hope they last a lot longer than one year.
    Thought I'd post. Keep on eye out for the condition of the sole. Could cause a major incident, if sole came detacted while on the road. Think the full price was like $249. What a bummer.

    Bummer. Kinda like backing your wifes brand new car into the garage door.


    Not that I just recently did that. Nope, not me.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    Dobber. The cobbler did repair my expensive shoes. So think with the nails in the soles they will be ok. How ironic a comparsion. THe backing of the car in the garage. I need change out my profile here at BF. Two bikes are no longer in our possession. The Scott has been retrofitted to a Surly frame. And, a cheapo urban bike, a Nishiki Sport. We no longer possess.
    My wife backed into it in the garage. The NIshiki is history. Thank god, she missed the Klein or i'd faint dead away. Also, totaled out the washing machine. She said it got stuck in reverse. At least the car did not go through the wall to the bedroom and all are ok.

    So, dobber. What did it cost to fix the door? Hypothetically speaking, of course.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.
