Strange, I got my shimano reynolds cryo blue pads to fit just pressing in by hand

You may need a pad press, but they are super expensive

Wear them with windstopper socks and you can go lower

No such luck yet. It's usually telling me to do high intensity and go anaerobic....

Do you train with a PM?

I was trying to fit new zipp tangente cork pads and could only get it a quarter of the way in by hand. The thickness of the lip was too much and could probably be saved. I ordered a set of swissstop racepro for campy for $45. Figured it was easier than wrecking a set of $70 pads.

I would if I owned one. Just an HRM on my Garmin for now.

getting returned... sm/med didn't fit 41 shoes very well and was hard to zip up even with my skinny ass ankles. went out twice in 40F and didn't feel any warmer than the Hammer aero covers i've been using.

Wear them with windstopper socks and you don't need them at all....

As far as function goes they are no better or worse but savings little weight they are great. I was told that 105 and up SPD-SL pedals will only carbon from now on any way. The 105 carbon are really nice also for less cash. I do not know how they hold up in the long run but I have always had good results with Shimano.

Not even that big of a weight savings...not even 74 grams between the alloy 105's and the carbon dura ace PD9000's.

Of course, 74 grams is 74 grams.

Alloy 105's = $70 @ 321 grams
Carbon 105's = $115 @ 280 grams
Carbon Dura Ace = $205 @ 247 grams

nastystang 02-02-14 10:10 AM

Every gram counts. Personally I think they look good also.

Adrianinkc 02-02-14 10:22 AM

Shimano carbon pedals look great and you don't have to worry about paint chips. They even hold up very well in wrecks, I went down at 25mph around a corner and pedal has a tiny scuff that you can barely see.
