My new Sidi Bullet 2's. The classic Italian!
While away in Edmonton for vacation, I picked up the Sidi MTB Bullet 2 cycling shoes. After using them on my training rides ... the Sidi's are simply fantastic! I had two choices, a Lake road shoe or the classic black Italian Sidi's.
Ok both were the same price, but the Lake had a slightly wider toe box, silver colour, and that there was no way on earth to walk in them. The Sidi's, on the other hand has a ever slightly narrow toe box, which my wide feet slipped comfortable into. What I also like is the classic Italian style and the black colour. And, oh yeah, I could walk around in them without fear of slipping, thus avoiding the calamity of huge amounts of pain.
The Sidi's won out, without question. I always wanted a pair and hell, the Italians know a thing or two about cycling shoe design. It didn't matter that the shoes are made in cheaper to produce, Romania. I don't care, the fit and looks are excellent and I'm in Sidi happyland!
Thank's to Hans he showed me the exquisite issue #8 of Rouleur magazine, he bought on the Rapha website. What caught my eye was the story showcasing Eddy Merckx's rare photo album. Also a profile on 6 time KOM winner, 'the Eagle of Toledo' Frederico Bahamontes. If you don't know what I'm referring to, do have a look at it on the website: www.rapha.cc
Today was the first time I've looked at this unique magazine. Flipping through it, I'm utterly hooked. I know you will be, too!
