    i've been ipod-free since mine was stolen two years ago. it's kind of liberating - you can HEAR things again... eavesdrop on subway conversations, traffic, streetcars, your own thoughts.

    ... or maybe i'm just a hippie.

    Hey I think I saw you riding south on Yonge just a bit north of Dundas around 4:20/30ish yesterday? I was booking it riding north on my dark grey track bike.

    Nope, you hear all kinds of interesting stuff. F'rinstance a group of folks was discussing the merit and social implications of threesomes. Very interesting stuff...

    Jeremy is that rear wheel cassette or thread-on?

    Zippered, how long did the Exustars take to break in? I'm still waffling over what shoes to get.

    I had a pair of exustars before my sidis. Not worth it imho.

    That's what I keep hearing from you and others.. it's just really hard trying to justify shelling out $250+tax (The "normal" sidi's seem a bit too narrow for my stumpy/wide feet, so I'd have to go Mega) when I only planned on $100 tops at the start. "Real salary" dreams on a grad student budget...

    doesn't matter, in fact it could be any 6-7 or 8 speed with 126-130 spacing as i intend to use it with friction shifters.

    If you can't get sidis, i'd just stick with clips and straps. I commute on these now with my running shoes and they work just fine. In fact I almost prefer this if i'm not doing long country rides, the sidis are much heavier than my superlight running shoes and I can't walk in them (the road versions you can't anyways...).

    Not to mention you don't need to get the pedals or replace your cleats.

    i bought these the summer of '05. i find the tongue to be a bit uncomfortable, but i find that about a lot of shoes. i don't recall needing time to break them in. the only thing that have worn on them so far is the metal cleats. they've been worn on almost a daily basis (except when i wear my sidi's with my campy pedals!) from early spring to late fall, but not necessarily all day. they've definitely gotten soaked, although i do tend to switch to my lake winter shoes if i know it's gonna be pouring. oh and i like the fact that there's reflective material on the heels. /review

    wow! i'm so glad i was able to go to the poker run! i'm still smiling! fun times, good cause, nice people!

    That was me!

    I got the Sidi Bullets from MEC (with a handy "spousal" discount, wahaha). They were one of the few mountain shoes there that were available in my tiny size. They are awesome! I feel like Astroboy...

    Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of BF?
    Astroboy knows...

    And my big waffle on shoes is what I really want is sandals. I've been really choked since I blew the strap on my lakes and MEC doesn't stock 'em any more. I have a pair of Axo Vipers which are just barely too small but tolerable for short distances so it's hard to rationalize buying another pair of mountain shoes. bleah

    And a potential converesion http://toronto.craigslist.org/bik/299766591.html

    Fair enough - but I already "impulse-bought" the Look Keo's from probikekit for half price After looking around & seeing the pricing on "entry-level" road shoes, the build quality and apparent comfort of sidis seems like it's probably worth the extra dough. The pair I tried on today was quite comfortable, even though a bit narrow through my forefoot/arch.. I guess what it'll really come down to is if I can find the right size for my weird feet.

    Thanks to all for the advice.
