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

The only cycling shoes I had before laced ones were (admittedly not top end) Shimano MTB shoes with 2 velcro straps and a ratchet. Both pairs that I had of those fit me great everywhere except the toe box, which was too wide. There was no way that I could tighten the one velcro strap in that area up enough to get the toe box tightness right. With laced shoes, instead of 3 points to adjust fit, you have 8 or 10 or however many gromets you have to play with. Overall, it lets you get a more customized fit from the upper.

My shoes have an strap (top is leather, sides are elastic) on the tongue to tuck the tied loops into. Never had a problem with them coming out and getting caught anywhere. The only downside (if you can call it that), is that they're not as fast to get on/off as other cycling shoes.

I've always like the look of a number of the Lakes, though unfortunately, they inexplicably skip size 49 for all their models -- too big of a gap for me between the 48s and 50s.
It's hiding under the laces on the middle of the tongue in this picture, but, yes, it's there.

I always see the small sizes on sale.
Its not clear to me that this for 2x - so I sent contact msg thru amazon to ask if the price was for 1x or 2x tires...
I've seen 2x pics on other items as well, then buried in the text is indication that the item was 1x - nothing clarifying in this listing.
Will post when I hear back.

Sort of general re: Vendor but I'm wary....

I'm seeing some amazing prices out of Signapore. Nerocycle.com

Does anyone have experience with them? I'm seeing Mavic R-SYS SLR 25's for $593
2020 Mavic R-SYS SLR 25 Clincher Wheelset (nerocycles.com)

That's pretty darn good, and Super Record 12 for under $977?

If that's what you're looking for, start another thread - this isn't the "is this vendor legit?" thread.

wrong thread. this is only for deals on sale, not appraisals.

Sports Basement in northern California has Cannodale bikes on sale for 25% off.

https://shop.sportsbasement.com/search?q=cannondale

Maybe the caadx1 is similar enough for you?

Tacx Flux S on sale at Planet Cyclery for $499, normally $749. It's still an investment but honestly of the best with a structured training plan e.g. TrainerRoad, FasCat, Wahoo SYSTM.

I bought this over a year ago at full retail and still think it was a good buy. Having a decent direct drive trainer with structured training helps to build and keep fitness while still being a dad

Coupon code welcomeback knocks 50 bucks of the price.

Regarding nerocycles.com...

This site gives them about a "62% legit" rating:
Link to Scamdetector review of nerocycles.com

What's a bit odd, is the anti-scam site doesn't post any actual customer comments...and then take up actual customers' complaints or observations to investigate further. They seemed to have built their review on web-stats and data.

My wife is in SG, so I asked if she could find out anything about nerocycles. Haven't heard back yet.

The red-itt thread ( of 3 comments between 2 posters) seemed to think the business' address location showed some issues.

AND you get an $20 additional discount using code JUL2022 - getting it down to $84
AND qualifies for Free shipping. while supplies last...
a great crankset for anyone running 10 speed (will likely also work with 9 spd, possibly 11 spd...)

Thanks very much. I asked several shops about those prices, and they were unanimous that most of that stuff, they can't buy for those amounts.
A couple of the wheel prices were close to ProBike, ribble, etc closeouts. The Mavic dealers I contacted would love to get them for those prices.
I'm going to hold off. I rarely buy modern gear, but thought some carbon clinchers would be nice.

My contribution:
In the last 6 months or so, I've picked up two sets of climbing rim brake wheels from ProBikeKit:
1-Carbon clincher by 3T, called C35 Orbis (Stealth version). MSRP $2100 per the site, I think I paid $768. Came with thru-axle adapters and brake pads.
2-3T alloy, ceramic coated, they came branded as Vittoria's, very nice setup, also came with thru-axle adapters and brake pads. Again, MSRP $2000 and I paid $675 or so.
I generally take MSRP's on heavily discounted items with a grain of salt, just compare what they are selling for with others at the same point. In both of these cases, sub 1500g sets, with pads, for what I'd have to spend, used, for 303's and such. Not sure why the trhru-axle adapters for rim brake wheels, but I don't know modern. Both sets are gong to Triple ByPass in CO.

Again, thanks for your assistance.

Youre very welcome.

Apologies to the readers who dont care for the O/T
comments here, but I couldn't find
the " Is this vendor legit?" thread.

I'm debating buying a wheelset from nero on a CC.
If I do, I'll post my experience here in the thread.

Happy miles.
