Submitted by Dan a Cross Country Rider from Saskatoon

Date Reviewed: July 19, 2001

Strengths:    Look like "normal" hiking shoes, not the space boots most cycling shoes look like. Comfortable. Can be used as a pair of winter shoes in -30C Canadian weather (well, for decent commutes or short rides) with thick wool socks over winter wool cycling socks. Plenty of circulation for summer riding.

Weaknesses:    A little big and clunky. Wearing these with shorts in the summer makes your feet look about 5 sizes larger than they are. Probably a little heavy as well but most days I don't notice. The "big stupid velcro strap that keeps your shoe laces from getting caught in the chain and you from crashing" (stated a local LBS salesman selling the shoe for $110CDN when I mentioned the annoyance of velcro) is starting to come apart; mostly I am commuting. Also the mesh vent in the arches of the foot can cause really bad cramps during winter riding if you don't layer (thick) enough socks. Good spot to let water in too.

Bottom Line:   
Good shoe for light trail riders or people like me who mostly commute. They are starting to smell a little, but Febreeze takes care of that problem. Not wearing proper socks in the winter will cause horrible foot cramps because the mesh vent is right where you foot's arch is. Realize they are not intended for winter use however. I don't use them a lot during the summer because I find they are a little hot, and the big and clunky issue I've got above.
Other than the velcro strap and the shoe laces which are beginning to fray, I've had no problems with them coming apart.

Strengths:    Bought mine in San Diego in a sale for US$20 last year
More efficient than riding in trainers
You look like a normal person in them still

Weaknesses:    Shoes are not the lightest things ever

Bottom Line:   
At $20, I couldn't really go wrong for a pair of SPDs. I f you wanna race, get something lighter. If you live in the real world and appreciate pedalling becoming easier, buy somehting like this.
