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? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

which brings me back to my original question....has anybody had trouble clipping in with this particular style of shoe because of the degree that the cleats are recessed?

Buy first, ask questions later always seems to work out well.
