For the last three years I've been designing custom paint options for SAGE Titanium customers. Definitely fun to work with customers to come up with something they love and are excited to ride. Here's

Lap around the lake today

fall!

Rubbish...Tension on mine is pretty tight probably 80%, personal preference.

I use the yellow cleats with 6dg float. I found that waking isnt an issue. Some wear is visible, but havent had to replace them. So not bothering with covers. Wear on the shoe heel is worse.

 

I'll agree with this. Walking isn't an issue at all for me. Wear on the cleats is minimal, but I suppose I don't do too much walking in them. I keep my tension, to give a percentage I'd say 50% but I ride a ton in high traffic areas and having to stop a lot I like to have them easy to clip out.

been using the same spd cleats for a year, I work in them every day. Expect the cleat bolts to wear down to the point that you need to use a gator bit to get them out if you need to switch (or just buy new shoes) the metal the cleats are made of is real hard and they function fine after serious wear

edit: Im not riding fixed on them so I can't speak for the retention/stopping power after a year when they act as your "brakes"

I'll probably just keep using Time ATACs or Toshi Doubles/MKS pedals for fixed. The SPDs will just be for racing track and road, and doing road rides on sunny days.

I got a Cycleops Jetfluid pro trainer recently. Its a lot more than $70 though. But its pretty awesome.

Being winter here I use it a fair bit, great for intervals.

 

do you have to have rear skewers to make it work? i had a bad experience with skewers and i find just keeping a wrench in my bag is easier so im probably the only rider who doesnt have a single skewer on his bike (not even the seat clamp)

if they do then im just going to rig up two wide cylinders and put both of them on a axel, run it through some bearing and make a chock for my front wheel and just use that. im running a single speed cyclocross setup so i wont be able to get any resistance through shifting and i havent come up with any other ideas yet.

The skewer is just something for the trainer to hold on to.

As long as the nuts on your bike fit properly into the trainer part you should be fine. Though you might be voiding the warranty on the bike and trainer.

Also most trainers come with a sturdy steel type skewer, so you can replace the light expensive one on your bike and dont wreck it.

 

You should be ok with singlespeed, but you dont have the ability to adjust resistance. You may need to change your gear ratio for a better feel.

Considered rollers?

Man, Cadel Evans is probably my least favorite pro.

 

Bradley Wiggins on the other hand, f-yeah! Dude is killing the mountains.

 

Lance's solo bridge to the break group today was fucking baller... dude passed Vandvelde like a rocket, said "catch my back wheel? nah fuck that!" on his way up. Watching these mountain stages makes me want to become a better climber.

Great effort dude.

 

And I want some shoes/pedals for my bike.

 

Dad said to get some MTB pedals and shoes, easier to learn/more comfy.
