Anyway, I bought some Chrome brand shoes that I read about on a fixed bike forum. They look pretty cool. I hope they aren't too heavy.
I got an "infraction" for this.
Don't tell cliquish posters who complain about your interest in obsolete bicycling products, that they are "dick"s or "rude f#ckers" or you will get an infraction. If you tell enough dicks or rude # you will probably get banned.
So that is why I just started a new thread for people who like old style stuff.
re: "zombie threads"
If you are so cool, why are you subscribed to threads you don't care about? Why are you such a dick?
I'm glad not everybody on this board is such a rude ***** who complains about threads that might help someone find the gear they are looking for.
I like SPD, Speedplay, all that. I have several different bikes, and sometimes I like to ride them with toe clips. I have old bikes, new bikes. I like different ones. A lot of people still like toe clips.
Why don't you just unsubscribe from something if its "old" and doesn't interest you.
Why don't you just institute a time limit on threads if it matters so much to you?
