Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Soma toe clip size ?

So I am planning on getting Soma Double gate toe clips in the near future. It seems that they only offer 2 sizes S/M and L/XL. What size are people running? I use an M for standard clips with a size 8.5 vans old school skate shoe. I imagine that the S/M would be the best choice, but I just want to hear what other people's experience has been with sizing.

i have soma single gates in l/xl and i wear them with anything from an 11 puma suede to a 12 dunk high so id say go with the smaller size especially with a thin shoe like that

I hate the Soma Double gates. Could never get them in the right place so they were always digging into my feet, but then again I do wear a size 14.

I just got a pair of the S/Ms myself and I wear a 10 1/2. I compared them to my MKS medium sized cages before hand and they run about the same as those. Over all they seem a little wider threw-ought than the MKS.
