Daddy has a new pair of shoes

And man they are fast. Well maybe there not any faster but they sure look fast.

I had a chance tonight after work to do a quick little ride before the rain hit, so I went and tested the new shoes and pedals. The pedals are definitely much tighter than my old eggbeaters (as expected). Clipping in and out was also very easy and came with no effort. The shoes did feel funny to walk on (my first road shoes) but who walks on them, I ride. Now comes the exciting part WOW are they comfortable. My old shoes were nice and not cheap either but WOW these things really are like slippers. As far as stiffness they are stiffer than my old ones but my sub par legs could not tell the difference. Did I mention how comfortable they are.

Now for the stats are they any faster. I did a out and back along the lake that I often do when I have no real time to ride. It is VERY flat and normally pretty fast. Well I did not have time to do any warm up as the rain was coming and quick. My legs were also still feeling my solo century from this weekend and there was also a stiff cross wind that made it hard to compare to other rides. Not making excuses just giving the facts. As far as faster the speeds were normal but the watts were up so either I was scared of a cold rain or they are faster. It did rain not five minutes after I got home and hard.
