just fell in lust with a new pedal shoe combo. Sunk the duckets and bought a pair of 03' DMT ulimax RSX shoes and mated them to Dura Ace SPD-SL pedals.. money well spent. The new style pedals are the best I've ever ridden and the shoes fit like a glove..

just thought i would share...
DMT Ultimax are great shoes. The profile is enoughbill

lower (I'm not sure what you call it exactly, but the distance between the sole of your foot and the pedal spindle) so that I actually had to lower my saddle from where it was with Carnacs, which I think are actually sort of high. Did you have the same experience (although you changed pedals, too, so it's not very scientific)?

I was using spd-r pedals prior to the sl's. I did notice some additonal stretch, but I think I will keep my saddle height where it is, because I was using a (go ahead and laugh) koobie saddle and recently switched to a fizik pave'. A large improvement over the koobster, though the koobie was taller.. goofy how an eighth of an inch can make so much difference..
