    Overshoes...

    Hi, I just have a question about Overshoes for the winter. As I have never purchased an Overshoe before, Do they fit over the current cycling shoes w/ cleats that you wear???... And if so, Wouldn't the cleats finally wear out the sole of the overshoe where the cleat is inserted into the pedal???...

    The Overshoes I'm talking about can be found at: http://www.cobr.co.uk/acatalog/e_cob...rand_2135.html

    Its ok I have got the answer. Overshoes have cut-outs in the soles for the cleats to attach to the pedals. Thankyou to the 22 or so people who viewed the thread and helped me out...

    Do I detect sarcasm? Such a hard thing to interpret over the internet.

    It is entirely possible and probable (given the generic subject heading) that 22+ people viewed the thread thinking it might have information about overshoes, but didn't actually know the answer to the question within. Count me as one of them.

    Great attitude to encourage people to help you in the future....

    Shouldn't this be a reminder that you should try to post descriptive thread names?

    Honestly I think it just shows, not all of us know everything. There are many who read this forum, some hardly ever even post. So you might get 20-50 views, maybe 1 out of hundred knows the answer.
