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)

I have two pairs of Shimano shoes and they are pretty awesome. I will be getting another pair as the first pair wears out.

A friend bought them when I was looking at new shoes. I took his advice and bought them as well and we re both really happy about them. They re really a heavier version of 200$ shoes.
Plus if you already have shimanos you know their sizes go small

I have found them to be dead on, at least for me. I wear a 48 in their shoes as well as Specialized.

I bought tires lots and lots of tires, mostly Conti Gatorskins and Gator Hardshells and some tubes to go along with them and a few rim strips for good measure. I also picked up a Cambium C17 Carved for my new touring bike whence it arrives (though I will put it on the old one because the Thomson seat post is moving over as well). Also dropped deposit money on my new bike. Lots of money going out so hopefully the Gubamints send mah refund check soon!
