Not sure if you guys are talking about my blue ones or the normal ones...but, I'm not sure if blue ones are still available. There were only 400 made, I have 374/400. I got them from Arts Cyclery but they don't seem to be coming up on their site anymore.

They were $300, but I had a 15% off coupon. Still pricey, but I had to have them. A fool and his money.

BoSoxYacht 05-09-13 03:22 PM

I bought these for a friend

Competitive Cyclist has the Silver and Black ones for $275 with 21% off with code GIRO21.

I am excited for these since my Mavics have holes in the carbon soles :( Love the Mavics, but ready for something new.

gc3 05-09-13 07:45 PM

yeah, they're likely all gone...good thing for my wallet...since the my prolight slx are less than amoth old

I came from Shimano R106's which were fine, but I couldn't help myself. Those will now become my bad weather shoes.

The only downside to the laces is at the end of hard ride when you just want to kick your shoes off and fall over...well, you can't, you still have to untie your shoe, where R106's I could have off in a matter of seconds.

I finally got to try them out tonight and they were fantastic. Way better than my old glasses. The thing I noticed the most was looking over my shoulder. I can now see whats behind me with just a slight turn of the head as opposed to turning half my body around to see what was coming.

Dinner, for the one who put the new clipless pedals and seat onto the new-to-me road bike. First time riding on those kind of pedals and I already had my mandatory idiot fall :). I felt inducted into something.

took me nearly 45 seconds to realize she was wearing sunglasses. :innocent:

Glad you like them.

My SO has been training for a marathon, so I got her a pair to show support for her.

Running is evil, but she'll also use them for cycling.

I put together a brand new set of Speedplay Zero ti pedals using speedplay's pedal rebuild kit, bearings, and aftermarket Wade spindles. Cost under $200 and could have been much cheaper.

I only noticed there were glasses when I scrolled down on my screen and all I saw was her head. (no offence is intended here)

None taken.

This woman is just a friend.

Honestly, the SO is better looking, and in much better shape.
