Sorry didn't mean to offend (note that I didn't suggest you give them away). But if you're not going to make any more, just figured you could get some return on the R&D.

No offense taken! I was being tongue-in-cheek.

We may end up making more at some point...it's just not certain when.

Just got back from a nice ride with my Calv. It was MUCH better than riding in a sweater or suit coat like I am used to. When I got too hot i unzipped the front a bit loosened the sleeves for some nice air flow. This is going to be the perfect jacket for spring / fall riding. Kept my camera in the front breast pocket which did get some condensation so I left it a bit unzipped to compensate.
TL;DR
I rode farther, faster, and made love longer, get one.

Man, these straps are too hard to get into, haha. Every time I open them up big enough to get a good fit, they slide forward and won't go in because there's too much slack. When I tighten them, still hard to get into but still retains it's form and doesn't allow me to get my foot in deep enough.

What do I doooo... I tried making the front tighter than the rear, and I also tried criss-crossing the ends of the straps when tightening them.. Doesn't seem to work.

How work?

I don't know man, I feel like it's too flimsy.. I flip my pedal over and the straps just move forward and doesn't really let my foot in.. Probably just the pedals since they're a little small or something.

You've got track pedals right? They are a little top heavy when used on Sylvans and similar smallish pedals. Larger platform-type pedals cause the lower straps to spread out a bit and takes the slack out of them.

Yeah I'm on GR-9's.

I'll probably put on clips and straps until I get a chance to buy platforms.

Dude... I just got the 'Calv' in the mail yesterday and I love it! Unfortunately, I over-gaged the size and the medium is too big for me. Is the small substantially smaller than the medium?

How limited are the Calvs, Scrod? I feel like possibly jumping on the bandwagon! They seem quality.
