Can I use a Ultramicrolock buckle on my Sidi shoes that came with the Microlock buckle? I need new ones and want to upgrade. Sidi rocks.....
Yes, with the correct straps.jw25

The microlock strap is wider than the ultra-microlock strap, so you'll need to replace both.
I've used both buckles, and besides looking a little flashier, the half-step ratchet of the ultra is very nice, and the main ratchet lever is spring-loaded, so you'll never have to flip it down while riding along. Personally, I think $35 to upgrade the buckles is a little steep, but do whatever makes you happy.
