Thanks for your cool videos, I always enjoy them very much. In some of your videos you are saying that race bikes are only for races and if you don't race then this is not the bike for you. Now I'm in doubt since I'm dreaming about road bike and in local store we have cannondale bikes with good prices. They sell CAAD12 105 for 1350usd and this is the price I can afford, but this is the race bike. They also have SYNAPSE Carbon 105 for 1850usd which is a bit pricey. Considering that I'm not planning to race nor ride 100km+ rides what do you think I should select? I'm currently riding mtb only, swift in off season. My rides are not long - 20-30km few times a week. I'm worried that race bike will be uncomfortable to ride and caad12 will be just a waste of money. Please help with your thoughts.
Thanks in advance.
Hi all...wonder if anyone has had this problem. I have a set of Shimano PD-M520 pedals on my mtb and on my road bike. I have two pairs of the same shoe, FLR F-55. One pair has SM-SH51 cleats and the others have SM-SH56(M) cleats. My issue is both style cleat is difficult to clip in ( I have the pedals at the least tension setting). It appears that the hard tread part that you would walk on is almost too thick and is preventing the cleat from engaging fully. My feet actually flew off the pedals on rough ground the other day when wearing the multi release cleat. Not what you expect when clipped in is it?
I don't seek out confrontation but this guy stopped and looked like he wanted to have a conversation so I was happy to oblige. I wish i hadn't raised my voice but something to different next time.
UPDATE: The first Vehicle Code quote should read, “a means of conveyance propelled by human power OTHER THAN A BICYCLE.” There was apparently a glitch during the upload which randomly cut that text out. It’s there in the edit but not on YouTube. So weird.
