    Barring a change of job, it looks like my commute has now permanently changed to the few steps from my bedroom to my study.

    Trucker flaps were tempting, but I couldn’t look past a set of proper classic leather ones.

    Fenders?! Trucker flaps?! I think the 'Salon should pitch in for sandals and a pair of wool socks for you. You're on a path. You'll need the footwear to get there.

    Oh, Iím sorry. I didnít realise we were rationally analysing things now! Youíre right, you donít need an all weather commuter. What you need is a rain bike. In Sydney.😀

    Stop it with your logic and common sense, man...!

    Frankly, I'm building this as a bit of a two-fingered salute to no-one in particular. Mechanical gears? Check. Rim brakes? Check (and those even older school 'mid-reach' ones at that). Non-oversize, long, skinny head tube? Check. Low profile, non-aero rims? Check. Tubulars? Probably. Fenders (mudguards, where I come from)? Hell yeah.

    Nowhere near mid-foot, but at least the newer slotted soles from Fizik (like on my Vento R2s that this sole is based on) do allow for the cleat to be moved much more rearward than their earlier soles did.

    I'm just keen to know if these are wide, or of the material is flexible enough to allow for a wide foot. The Vento R2s accommodate my flippers very well, but I like the look of these 'Stabilita' too. I have 30% off at Fizik, so it's either these Stabilita, the new Vento Infinito or a set of the Vento R2 in the Movistar blue...

    From CyclingTips...

    ďThe upper is made of a nylon mesh with a layer of polyurethane laminated over the top, while two of Boaís latest Li2 low-profile dials provide dual-direction micro-adjustability and a convenient pull-to-release function. Riders who have always found Fizik shoes to be too narrow and too tapered will be happy to hear that the toe box is not only wider than before, but also more squared-off as well for a more accommodating fit. Down below, that new carbon plate sports a vent under the toe to help keep your feet cool, and the cleat holes are situated in a more reasonable position slightly further back relative to older Fizik shoes.Ē

    The cleat holes do allow for a significantly more cleat setback. Not a true "midfoot" cleat placement. They do fit very close maybe the same in width as the Aria R3. Almost exactly to a Tempo Powerstrap R3. As we have those in stock and I based my size purchase after trying them on. The material does not feel like it will stretch much or at all. I will see if we have Vento in stock and report back. My experience so far. The fit is rewarded by two good heel spikes after putting on the shoes and tightening. It allows me a click or two more on the upper boa dial. The instep support has been a pleasant surprise. Hopefully, I can get outside and climb out of the saddle this weekend to some.

    Good info, thanks. I'll await feedback Vs the Vento on this basis, as my R5 Powerstraps are on the tight side despite being the next size up.

    I find this applies to any cycling shoe. I often put shoes on, do a couple of heel taps (kick the back of one shoe against the side of the other), tighten shoes, walk to the bike to pump tyre, put helmet on etc., then a couple more heel taps and re-adjust shoes. Settled feet fit differently to unsettled; and I always know when I haven't bothered.

    Arrived Friday.
    Fedex and customs did a number on the box.
    Vendor put the wrong bars on it (and the hoods are in a weird place), but after a wheel true and r/d hanger check, I got it out on the road today.
    Haven't had a 700c bike in a couple years, nor something with a road double cranks, so it'll be fun to jam on this thing.

    I, like many others this year I'm sure, resemble that remark!

    They've been blowing up my IG feed lately. I think I could get down with one. Let us know how you enjoy the ride...and being back on a regular old road bike.

    Germany, I think. I really don't know. I'm just such a sucker for rim brakes and skinny tires.
