Addiction 2023.1

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

I was looking at the new Sidi Genius too, but it doesnít have the ďBoaĒ tie downs.
How far are you from Fitwerx? Last time I shopped there they had a good selection and are really good to deal with

Sadly true. You can't even depend on the sizing from a single manufacturer. Back in 2014, I got a pair of Sidi Ergo Carbons in 46, which to this day fit perfectly and never cause any issues no matter how long the ride. Based on that, during the Pandemic I bought another pair of Sidis, in 46, which are too large. Not unusably so, but enough that it's hard to get a snug fit. The soles of old ones are starting to separate at the heel, but I'm gonna see if I can fix that with some epoxy or similar, because they just work.

And just to add insult to injury, after the car comes to rest, the tire comes back into frame and runs into it again.
I see you already mentioned that.

That may be, I was going by what I saw/read when looking at the current Sidi Genius 10 shoe, which looks like a BOA but is a boa-like closure and does not quite work the same way.

Oooh, it has a little flip-up handle. Would be nice on hot days. I have trouble opening my BOAs sometimes when I'm dripping in sweat and sunscreen.

I've had good luck buying shoes online, and the specter of possibly having to return is not a big deal.

I got my latest Vittoria shoes on close out. The Vittoria Cycling Shop has a pretty good selection of prior year shoes, and the discounts are good, but return shipping cost is on you.

I actually bought my TT bike from there when I was living in Hamilton. Love their fittings.

However, from where I live now, itís a solid 1:15-1:30.

OK, Iím pretty sure that mine looked different than that. Iíve since sold them so I canít really compare but Iíll concede your point since Iím guessing that mine were at least 5 years old and donít have them at hand to confirm.

My wife and I were doing a lot of traveling and touring pre-epidemic and I sold my road shoes in favor of mtb shoes to be able to walk. Now, post-pandemic, Iíve bought a couple pair of road shoes, again.

I feel your pain. My current shoes are fine, but these are calling out to me, and they have my size:
