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

Excellent feel. Tight and firm grip all around the foot. The shoe is built exactly like the Mavic Avenir, with a touring specific outsole. Extra + for the preshaped insole (composite). I´ve completed a 70 km virgin ride without any kind of problems.

They are called Cyclo tour.

Dude, wtf. Stop wasting money on expensive shoes and get a bike now! Not one single accessory will make you faster than just riding more/sooner (unless you count battery packs and motors as accessories).

I know... but a BF member noticed I needed shoes and was kind enough to hook me up with some discounted shoes. Since he was buying a Cervelo S5, I got the shoes for 35% off.

I'll get my Caad10 soon! I just need to wait for my next pay cheque...

The mail was running late yesterday, but I finally received - on the same day - a pair of Shimano 105 pedals (to go with the rest of the 105 group on my 2011 Giant Defy 1, purchased on Monday), a Cateye Wireless computer, and a 12-pack of 16oz CO2 cartridges for my Genuine Innovations air chuck. Lotsa swag the past week, but I think I'm done for now (have a couple of BBB Aerocages en route).
