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

My friend is just starting out on a road bike. The problem is he is looking for a size 15 or 16 ( 50 or52 mm ) Road shoe. ( Thats big ) . Anyone have any good used road shoes that size out there? Sidi makes a 50 52 mm size but are from $189.00 and up. He wants something less costly.

Not sure if Sidi Genius 4 Megas come in that size, but they're worth every penny of their cost. If you're a Team Performance member (performancebikes.com), these shoes can be had for $129. Add a %20 off coupon from the Hot Deals forum and you have an absolute steal. Great, great shoes.

Tell him to check the pedals as well, some pedals are not wide enough for my 13s.

I can understand how your pal feels. I waited several years before ponying up the dough for Sidi shoes. Later that year I bought a 2nd pair. They are worth every penny.
