Submitted by mikeburk a Cross Country Rider from Oakland, CA

Date Reviewed: August 17, 2010

Strengths:    solid components and materials, good craftsmanship, innovative replaceable sole inserts (compare to Sidi Dragon at $450+), carbon sole, well-formed heel cup, and sleek design

Weaknesses:    the velcro seems a bit wimpy, but time will tell...

Bottom Line:   
IT IS ABOUT TIME WE PUT THE COCKS@CKERS AT SIDI IN THEIR PLACE AND BRING OUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE!!!! $273 is ridiculous for a pair of Dominators, Italian fit and craftsmanship be damned. This product is equal or superior to the Dominator in many aspects, and Carnac is a reputable company. As consumers it is our responsibility to combat the price gouging that SIDI is doing, solely because of their reputation. On top of all of this, their quality is slipping. Insulting if you ask me...

Looking for an all around bike for cruising. Found both of these. The Trek is 50 less. Any suggestions? They are willing to put same size tire on Trek so I can go on light trails. Thanks in advance.Read More »

What would you ride to escape a Tsunami?

Seriously, the sign just happened to be where I parked the bike to take a photo, didn't notice til later. I wanted to present a thought, on Aero style for Gravel Racers, instead of drop-bars. A history to this is that I live in New Zealand. We have only in the last 2-3 yrs started to see Cyclo ... Read More »

Need to escape smoke, where to ride on westside?

I've had it with the smoke. Packing the family up and headed somewhere else this weekend. I *think* I can bring the bike and go for a couple of 2- 3 hour rides before spending the rest of the day with the family. I have never ridden any of the trails on the westside. I have looked at the Evergre ... Read More »
