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)

i wear 11s and have the l/xl doublegates. i fit good in them with lowprofile sneakers like puma suedes but have trouble fitting in them with my nike running shoes that have a thick sole. maybe the l/xl would work best. check out some local shops they may carry them

Hey petebow, how are the doublegates? People said they really hurt if you wear soft shoes...

the quad gates are amazing, i wear simple vans authentics, a super thin canvas shoe and they feel great. I wear a size 10 but i ride the sm/med and puts my foot right where i need it, i recommend them 100%

In the rare case that someone with a size 14 shoe is going to ask my advice would be do NOT buy these. No matter how much I messed with them they always dug into the top of my foot (I wear/wore Sambas, Lavers and some old skate shoe).

MKS all the way.

i got the small mediums, dont have them on a bike yet as the bike they are going on is in pieces till tomorrow, but i put the gates on some old specialized track pedals and they fit perfectly around my boat shoes and pretty much everything except running shoes but those don't really fit in anything. Ill let you know about comfort when the bike is up and going.
