I've considered switching over to Speedplays, maybe at some point.



Thanks.



Definitely don't want shoes that make your feet hurt, so far these have been great for me.



Thanks for tip, next time I'm at my LBS I'll see about ordering a set.

I've been bamboozled, hoodwinked, set up. The mother in law is coming in early October. It appears I've been selling my self short, I'm usually bought off for far less. Guess I need to step up my game. I've come to learn it's wise to pick my battles and take my licks when need be.

You got off easy, I figured you were about to be hit with "honey, we're pregnant"

I bought a new wedge saddle bag. While driving to my ride yesterday, I saw my old one swinging int eh wind. The strap had rotted off and only the velcro around the seatpost was holding it on. That would have been an ugly surprise for a person driving behind me at 75 mph.

Nice! I rode in a pair of top-end Northwaves with terrible pain and hot spots. Switched to what you have and from the first ride, it was like pedaling on pillows. Enjoy, and massive kudos to your spouse - that's some understanding right there.

Thanks. :)

Put 23 miles on them this weekend. They seem to roll better than the OE Schwalbe’s. Soil easily, but cleaned up (rag with alcohol and purple power citrus cleaner) reasonably well first time out with a little effort. Time and milage will tell.

How do you gather?

it just looks wrong because it's pointing down ..

Got a sweet deal on a 5703 crankset & bottom bracket from Merlin Shimano 105 5700 Triple Chainset & Bottom Bracket | Merlin Cycles Final price, $103 (free shipping) The $150 I saved is well worth a bit of wait and it's a great upgrade from the FSA Vero crank that came stock.

Because the clamps are pretty far forward. This can put a lot of pressure on the rails, causing a crack. This doesn't mean a crack will happen, but the chances are increased. The saddle appears to be pointed down a fair amount as well. That has nothing to do with the seat post, more about how it was positioned.

Nice, was looking online at their closeouts last night for the Labor Day sale running right now. Too bad nothing ever in my size (small to XS).

Use se the find in store function to locate

this is a 56cm which they don't list on the website, but when you tried find in store was shown as in stock at one local store to me.

Needless as to say a phone call and a car drive later and it was in my trunk.
