I am very pleased with my Sidi 44. Extra Wide. I have a 9.5 4E foot. This is the best it gets for us platypussies.I would suggest going the next size up from fit. MCCL

Did you ever get that Pinarello? And what did you do with your Russian?

Well Fred things have changed. The Pinarello is just not my color. I was miffed at the new Pinarello's with web addresses on the seat tube. The art really went out of the bike. To me it looked cheap. Besides no where on that bike did they put Zabel or Telcom. But the bike was a limited ed. Go figure. Pinarello really had the chance and blew it here. I did order a DeRosa King. Will receive it in March as the color and size are the problem. Seems a long time to wait but I do remember waiting 13 weeks for the Russian Masi. Since I turn bikes about every 10 years I will build this to the hilt and might include the Campy Carbon crank. The Masi will be picked up by the insurance company. They wanted 350.00 for a bike in two pieces. I did do my homework and found where it is going and will bid on it. It is going to a public auction. I figure I will be able to get it for a third of what there asking me to pay. Hey by chance are you going to be at the Western in May down in Paso Robles. The family is wanting to do it this year as we have had other obligations years before. If I remember, you are up in Sonoma Ca. It would be nice if you could give me your schedule of Centuries rides. The family may enjoy something a bit different. I am also looking at the Ride the Rockies for the 5th time. Any way nice to here from you and stay in touch. Good to have friend's on the Post. MCCL

Lake has a good road shoe for bigfoot animals. The CX0201 Xtreme is a good deal. Check out their website.
