Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I now live in FL and summer has been here for a few weeks so I ordered new "summer" shoes (2012 Specialized Pro wide) from my LBS on Monday. They have more vents and mesh than my Sidi Genius 5s. I was told the shoes should be here before the weekend.

The pack has some bad reviews, but I took this as a chance to prove them wrong. I will put it through a torture test, and post my results.

I exchanged my 143 Toupe for a 130 after it wasn't working and I discovered the shop guy had managed to misread the assometer and put me on the wrong size. Still need to try a longer ride but this just might be The One.

This is far from summer. It's nice right now. In a few months the air will feel like hot soup.

For USA, I got Corsa 23 and 25 here but they have all models in stock. Have seen everything besides the 25mm sizes on some other sites but with higher prices.
