I may have less of a negative image of PI in my mind if they didn't overdo the logos and graphics on everything they make. It just makes it look like cheap wal mart stuff to be honest.

Funny you should mention that. My wife dislikes brands that place their logos all over the place. Her first reaction on my PI gloves was, "Hmmm, those logos stand out a lot." :D

Black gloves make the logos less obvious. :)

I'd worry more about the motorist who almost hit you claiming that they didn't see your hand signal... ;)

black + black = best case scenario.

I got these yesterday, they are less offensive, I think.

I can't remember my last update to this thread. I think since then I have acquired:

Specialized Sworks shoes
Speedplay zeros
Fizik Aliante Versus saddle

Loving all of them, except *sometimes* the shoes seem just a bit too small. I got the size I wear for everything else, but I have big bulbous toes and on the left side, sometimes my pinky toe rubs around. Not always though.

I picked up last version of these (w/o the velcro) a few years ago and I still love em.

Dude I rode briefly from Maryland to 22nd the other day and took that little secret dirt road to Bethany. What's that, 2 minutes on the canal? I had hundreds of bugs stuck to my forehead and in my helmet.

Ugh

Couldn't quite get the K-Edge XL Garmin/GoPro mount to fit on my Zipp Vuka Sprint bars, in fact I may have scored them a little trying to put it on-hope I don't have to replace them, uggh.

Found this combo mount instead which secures to the top two stem bolts. Couldn't find it in the US though so it's costing me a little bit in shipping but seems like the best solution I have unless I go with different bars.

edit: looks like I did jack up my bars so I cancelled this mount and just getting a new set of bars that will work with my existing k-edge.

They're definitely excellent shoes. I'm just not sure if I should have gone a half size bigger due to the toe issue. I may order them from spesh and try and see, and if it seems like a much better fit, I'll keep them and try and sell the slightly used ones for as much as I can.

Hey guys, I would take all that arguing somewhere else if I were you.

Just a tip. :)

Oh neat, a new Hotshot tail light. Wonder how the beam width and brightness compares to the original Hotshot (which I love, have 2 of them).

Sorry if my comments offended a few.

No hard feelings to anyone involved. I'm not thin-skinned when it comes to the stuff we talk about here. It's just friendly banter IMO.
