Is there such a thing as a stiff soled shoe for pedals with clips?
It's funny - whenever I get a new pair of shoes, I think they're awesome for riding with clips and straps, then they break in a little and I hate them. I've yet to find the "perfect" shoe (but I guess I haven't actually be looking very hard). A good friend of mine rocks DZRs (without cutting out the sole to install a cleat) as regular riding shoes and he says they're amazing. I can see how they would be because the front part of the sole is really stiff.
that sounds downright painful if riding brakeless. I can definitely feel the recessed cleat when apply pressure to the front of my shoe
I wish they made a style that was a little less bulky / breathable. I think my next pair will be those slip ons
You think I can probably do the same with these? I don't particularly like the DRZ shoe look.
I just remembered that my lbs is pretty much filled with Specialized only products in seems. Ill swing by tomorrow to see if they have these.
Scrod I am thinking about getting a thomson setback post but I don't know if my seat height would be high enough. When does the bend/setback start?

Hey scrod when are you going to have some velocity A23 nmsw rims in stock on your website?
Scrod on my leader 725 tr (one of the older ones), my rear wheel is a ***** to slide in or out of the dropouts. It almost just like gets stuck every few mm's. I don't know what it is and I tryed putting my wheel from the surly in there and the same thing happens. It's been like this since I bought it but i've just ignored it. Any idea on what it could be? I can post pictures of the dropout if you need to see it for yourself to check if anything is out of the norm.
my gfs 722 is the same way
Also, this "problem" is often caused by paint or powdercoat being too thick (as was the case with my BK). If that's the issue, a fine tooth file or sandpaper will do the trick.

Hey Dave when I was tightening up the headset on my Kagero, I couldn't tighten the top cap very much before the fork became too stiff, like literally right when you felt any pressure from tightening it, it would feel like the headset had too much pressure on it. I ended up just tightening it barely (top cap can still spin freely) so that the fork didn't wiggle around and still could move freely..
An I ok, or an I missing something?
ALL CITY NATURE BOY
Any pics? I'm fairly certain that I installed everything that came in the bag, unless I dropped it.To be honest, I don't think I remember any washers, let alone two. I think all I have in there is the dust cap, compression ring, bearings then the crown race.
Edit: is this everything included here: http://www.fullspeedahead.com/storag...Orbit%2036.pdf
If so, then I installed everything.
There should have two washers (essentially spacers that are placed above the top bearing) and a smaller top race that were packaged separately from the rest of the headset.
I ended up not getting them. Lbs did have them and because of the extra stuff they put in the sole to make it stiffer, they didn't slide into the clips far enough. Soles are too fat.
Seems my problems wasn't that I needed a stiffer soled shoe, just one that fit better in the clips.
I happened to go to a friends house in my Vans and found the thin soled shoes to fit better (over my Asics running shoes) so I ordered a pair of of shoes from New Balance's Minimus line because of their low sole, almost barefoot fit.
These, to be exact.
