Impatient little bugger, ain’t ya?
I just ride recreationally, but I have been wearing speeders five or six years now, on my second pair. Not fancy, not expensive either. Had to trim a little to fit my ATACS the way I like. Decent hike a bike shoe. Lace’s and Velcro strap bindings. Nice wide feel to them. Around $60 for the first pair, $35 for the second, on sale.
My kid has $200 shoes with some fancy buckle that always jams when dirty, falls apart after one year, but hey, they got screw in spikes so they must be cool.

My shoes

I like them better than racing shoes because the compaitively flexible toe area makes walking easier on rocks when I get in over my skill level. Racing shoes are like walking on tile in ice skates. They are durable, comfortable, cheap and the lug patern helps to keep the cleat off the ground.

I had a pair 4 or so years ago. Very comfortable shoes, however the tread started falling off by ride 5 or 6. I ride (and hike a bike) on slick rock so that is hard on shoes. I had to finally quit wearing them because there was no tread left on the bottom. They still worked fine as a bike shoe, however walking in them was dangerous.

You'll also find out that they have great traction for hiking uphill through mud and stuff. My first pair from 1997 were finally destroyed last year. Most of my Answers last about 4 years! They last in the rain, mud, and stream crossings and will last a long time. Fahn

Nice!. My old Performace branded Trophy shoes are starting to crap out on me and I need new shoes. These look like a good choice.

I already found out they have great traction for climbing hills.. went down a really technical trail that suddenly ended.. so rather than ride back over it, I climbed up a steep ass hill carrying my bike.. wasn't muddy but it was loose dirt...

this was my first day using clipless pedals.... no spills...

good to know they are durable as well..

How is the fit on the Answer Speeder shoes? Thinking about these.
what do you mean how is the fit???

I am a size 10 and that is what I ordered, and they fit perfectly... they are snug.. they lace up then have, a part that covers the laces that velcos down, then ontop of that are 3 velcro straps... the straps are staggered too...
