(not the Evolution -- these have two closures; not sure about other differences) from Colorado Cyclist for $80. Good deal? Any thoughts? I wouldn't have done it if I couldn't return them.

I've been using the NW Teams for the last three seasons (purchased them Mar '99). I believe that they are the same shoe, accept with plastic soles. They have been good shoes, held up well, comfortable, breath well. I use a clear wax to clean them (one shoe is blue, the other yellow). They do get drafty in the winter, and I cover them. I'd buy them again. I think I paid about $180 for mine. Sounds like a good deal...

Thanks a Ton!! They are carbon....vram

I was lusting after Cippo's beauties and now I got them for $70.00 at colorado cyclist! The evolution are selling for less, $70 and they have carbon sole on them, just confirmed again. The pair you bought are also carbon soled. Incredible deal! You can't get carbon-soled shoes for less than $170. Although my GF bought the Look carbon from supergo last month for $100 and I have been lusting for carbon ever since!

Get them before they are gone!
Thanks for the tip!Fiver
