Ding ding! Bourgeois!







You truly have no concept of the depths of problems I have in the loft of bikes... p.s. They are all old and worthless so don't be thinking I am somehow proud of it! The kindest thing anyone could do to help is send me a skip!

    I am going to buy some Xpresso's now, mostly because I don't believe in all the other people that make pedals.

    Right! Complete revision... I'm back on Time!  :D Jumped on the bike today (after a few days off due to a saddle-sore the size of Ricco's ego) and f**k me, the Xpresso's did the job! Feels pretty weird after the Shimano system, but I'm one happy little Esa! (Anyone wanna buy some Speedplays?  :lol)

    Couple of days ago I might have bought them for the hell of it, so fed up had I become of my SPDs on the CX bike. Click, click, click, every time I got out of the saddle.

    So before heading out to work on the bike the other day, I just got a kitchen knife and went crazy on some dried out clay bits stuck in the back of the cleat.

    Lo and behold, I found a flipping rock hard little stone in there. It took some awling to get it out but, well, all is quiet now! Well chuffed with that.  :cool:

    I have written a few articles on my blog about Speedplays.

    http://www.nonprocycling.com/?s=speedplay

    I love mine. I had SPD-SLs before the SpeedPlays and I think the best thing is the double sided pedal. No trying to slip in going up hill next to traffic.  :)
