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 love my Salsa Moto-Ace risers. They have just a little bit of sweep, and a little rise. they're so comfy.

I saw those and I'm curious, how stiff are those? It'd seem like, in order to make a comfortable sandal, the sole would have to be made more flexible than on most cycling shoes.

I'm wearing them right now and about to go out for a ride. They seem pretty damn stiff but still comfortable. I haven't ridden in them yet since there is still snow on the ground, however I'm about to ride over to a party and if I remember I'll post about them when I get back.

Yeah, they were pretty stiff, but the uppers gave a bit more than usual on bike shoes, but that's kind of to be expected with sandals. They're pretty damn nice though. Glad I bought that wheelset because the hub straight up just stripped. Specialized stock hubs aren't all that great though so w/e.
