    Woo!
    Let us know how they are on the bike. How recessed are the cleats once mounted?

    I am underwhelmed by my current Giro “casual” bike shoes, and these could be cool for riding to the brewery once that is safe again.

    I'm the dork who would appreciate VeloLavers. I love Adidas indoor soccer shoes, but need more ventilation for cycling.

    You are right Rich,

    Tracking just hasn’t been updated but Aus post sent an email indicating they will be sending the final part of the delivery.

    Also little elastic strips to keep laces out of the way

    Will see how they are on the bike, but sole seems stiff enough

    I'm interested in these shoes, looking forward to your review for riding stiffness and walking comfort.

    A new 26" wheel road/cross Islabike for my stepdaughter. I have built frames and bikes for most of my family so it irked me slightly to buy a ready-made bike. On the other hand, I don't have much experience of child's bikes and there is no way I can build a frame, have it painted and equip it for £800. Also, Islabikes seem in demand in the used bike market.

    Islabikes was founded by Isla Rowntree, three times British cyclocross champion, to meet the need as she saw it for good quality, lightweight children's bikes.

    It came with 26 x 1.5" gravel tyres, my choice of the three tyre options available, on nice wide rims but now I have seen the frame I think there is plenty of clearance for something like Rene Herse 26" x 1.8" Naches Pass tyres.

    I can understand the want for this kind of shoe when one owns only one bike as riding with regular shoes on clipless pedals is not hyper comfy.

    But for us suckers with n+1 bikes ? It is better dedicating a bike with flat pedals really. Unless you use them on a bike with a dropper seatpost you cannot switch comfortably from those kind of shoes to regular road/xc shoes anyway as the stack is different.

    A v2 Falz from BiKyle. Very happy with it based on one ride.

    This showed up today and I couldn't wait to build it up. I traded my blue 61cm MXL for this 60cm frame. Think the swap will work out well for both owners as he's taller and heavier than I am. I had blissfully forgotten, though, how hard it is to keep a white bike looking clean. This may be as clean as it gets for the foreseeable future.

    Ah, nice MXL!

    Reminds me that it's time to sell mine... it has been sitting in a box for over 10 years and I really don't see myself building it in the future with all the other lovely bikes in the stable.

    That would have been the perfect commuter shoe for me back when I commuted. 15 miles each way, often liked to go to a social thing on the way home, admittedly most of my social things revolved around cyclists but would have been way more comfortable than my CX shoes I bet.

    why get a dedicated flat pedal bike, when all you need is a reasonable pair of shoes? i hate riding flat pedals on a bike...

    Donít want to go off topic but since you askÖ

    Itís this frame that I rode about 10 years ago. Held on to it because of itís pedigree, and the fit was great. 57cm TT, 59cm ST (c-t) if I remember correctly. Collected it in Belgium from the first owner and hasnít been used much, real nice condition. But I have a lugged steel Hampsten and an EL-OS De Rosa which I prefer. The MXL is overkill for me.
