Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

For Clipless Riders: What are you sportin' and mashin'

I am considering buying a really flashy, bright red pair of Vittorias that I found on sale. I am not sure how this would look, but I am thinking that it will be cool. When I get them, I'll post pics.

But I thought that it would be interesting to see what you are wearing and riding.

Right now I wear Shimano SH-R131S



and ride Shimano Dura ace pedals



What are you sportin' and mashin'?

Sidi Genius and Look Keo Carbons. Occasionally switch to Sidi Dragons and Crank Bros Quattros for errands and poking about. I have Crank Bros Candys on my MTB, so the Dragons work with both sets of Crank Bros pedals.

ATAC XEs and some beat up old Pearl Izumi shoes. At the end of this season, new shoes are in order. I'm going to miss these, but the insides are falling apart.

i have look style pedals on my roadie and i gotta say, i love the way they feel when i'm riding but they SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK to walk more than 3 steps in. if you plan on doing more than getting on, riding, and getting off when you get home, then i'd look for another type of pedal. i personally love my crank bros, and i go between rockin my sixsixone mtb shoes and some old pearl izumi road shoes

Sidi Blazes(thinking of upgrading in the near future...though they are a fine shoe) and Shimano M520 Pedals. I'm completely pleased with the Pedals as they've already lasted me longer than my Speedplay Frogs (though I am extremely hard on pedals) and I have no reason to believe they'll stop being good.

I love them. They have a really low profile, are relativity small and they have a nice classic look to them. Definitely worth trying out.

I've heard that the low end Adidas cycling shoes are crap. One should just go with low end Shimano. They sure do look good though.

That is part of the reason I want those Adidas, they look like shoes I'd wear on a daily basis.

that's why I switched to Time ATACs--which never popped out
but lead to some hilarious falling over once at a light.
