Strengths:    tough i guess, they look pretty cool

Weaknesses:    heavy, weak heel support

Bottom Line:   
I would have liked these shoes to work better with my Mallets and require less trimming since Crank Brothers recommends Pearl Izumi shoes on their site, but i expected some trimming with Mallets. These are good shoes for a weekender/recreational rider but anybody more serious than me probably wont like them. I sort of stripped a screw in one and lost a screw in the same shoe but thats probably my own fault. Overall they're good shoes, comfortable to walk in, i know from experience.

Even after riding several months, I never felt like I was over the early season hump until after a few weeks of the higher-intensity schedule, bu ... Read More »

Getting in the groove.......

Is it just me, or is getting in the groove on a ride sometimes difficult? The first 10 minutes always seem to be more work then fun, but that usually changes. However, sometimes I just can't find that sweet spot. It doesn't seem to matter how I feel as I can feel under the weather and get in the ... Read More »
