Road Cycling “It 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.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I'll hot this bike. even with the spd pedals.

But as a penalty...i will always assume that you wear these spd bike sandals with your bike even if you produce evidence to the contrary.

steve, if you are stuck on spd, I have some proper shimano spd road pedals I could trade. They are single sided ultegras and in pretty nice shape.

lol i tried-can't stand how it looks too. I'm actually looking to replace my keos with speedplays, but truth is I find myself walking around to explore too much on rides. maybe I chose the wrong hobby!

This is my first set of tubulars. I didnt know what to expect. The few miles I've had a chance to put on them they seem real smooth, and handle nicely. Boyd's customer service was top notch. I thought I had an issue with the hub body. The lock ring didnt want to go past the third or so thread. I didnt want to cross thread it so I called Boyd. He had one out to me in two days. I ended up not needing it, the threads were just super tight, but awesome customer service. Now I'm eyeing some of his new clinchers.

I agree. I'm OCD with everything I buy, and I must have emailed them 5-6 times before eventually missing out on their deal anyway. Are those 58s or the new 60s?

thanks. I'm honestly still pretty new to road cycling (grew up with bmx bikes all my life), and I keep going back to the SPDs because it feels looser. I can't explain it, but I've read that speedplays are close in feel to SPDs. The Keos are too tight (makes my knees hurt sometimes on 60+ mile rides) and even though it's supposed to be better (less loss of energy), I don't race so I couldn't care less about that. I just like to ride long distances with my wife and explore the places we go to.

^its a hot bike for sure. especially after the expert photoshop work (seriously I can't even tell the original image has been altered ) I can understand wanting to be able to walk around (riding in NYC) but there are still options for what you need in a pedal.

speedplay's have adjustable float.

if you want really icy float maybe try out bebop's? I did a review of them a couple of years ago. every things A-Okay with them so far. I even put the cleats into some DZR shoes and can walk around no problem with them (for use with my commuter or even my roadbike with casual clothes).
