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 disagree.

If they are too small, then you'd be riding more toward your toes which is not comfortable at all. A larger clip would allow more space to get your footing correct.

O.P.: get the MKS steel in size "L"

riding with vans, go medium. I'm 9.5 too.

i dont know what kind of shoes they measure them with but whatever they are, they are clunkier than Vans.

Large sucked when i used em.
