I was wondering if anyone has the new 06 661 dually shoes with the taki soles?
I've been wearing the 04 and 05 models and I love the grip that i get with them.
They changed their soles to the Taki sole and was wondering what people thought of them?
Any body have them?
Yeah, I've got 'em - - HAD to have them the second I saw 'em. I'm embarrased to say that I have not actually used them yet, tho' . I love my Launches, though, so when they redesigned the Dually and came out with the new Taki version, I had to upgrade.
Launches are so good, the Duallys are bound to be x2, with the ankle support and even stickier rubber. I imagine that the pins in my pedals will chew them up pretty good though. Winter's finally receeding in Spokane, so hopefully I'll get out soon and report back.
I admit they do look alot nicer than the previous models.
I'm glad they went to the black.

They're the '04 which were either/or. I DH on platforms (never got the hang of clipless for that), so I left the cleat cutout on the sole alone. The '05 launches are that way too; but I notice that they make two versions for '06 and the Taki is non-SPD.
