C50_image_1389503829

i have these shoes as well and i am really enjoying them. Boa has great customer service and they will send you a replacement kit- maybe try to get one to put in your pack if you are enduro enough for that... i worry about a boa failure, but haven t had one yet... you can also get the Kestrel version with laces... i didnt do that because i was freaking out about the less stiff sole in that shoe not harnessing all my massive watts becuase i am pretty stupid actually... i should have got the one with laces... i think... but i like the boa... it works.. until it doesnt... in which case i will really wish i got the one with laces... but the soles are less stiff! and my watts and all that!

I agree with this in general. It's really important to get straight so the sport can grow. As a person responsible for a few total Fuck ups in the way a race is run I am learning a lot. I feel that gaining consistency in officiating and the process used ... more »

Compared to travel to Europe for UCI points, it's less travel.

Added a comment about video What Is The Most Efficient Pedalling Style? Testing Flat Vs. Clipless Pedals 11/1/2014 4:34 PM
C138x104

Most people are absolutely blown away to learn that flat pedals allow you to pedal at a lower percentage of vo2max at these lower outputs. But there is actually a lot of data from studies that show this to be true. It has more to do with lower recruitment of muscles because you are only pushing down. You get similar results from mid foot cleat placement clipped in.
