Tag: Fat Birds Don’t Fly

My new cycling shoes are here

First all of happy birthday to my older bother Douglas and my Dad. Hope you are both having great days, sorry I could not make it up to Scotland for them.

So now on with other news. My new cycling shoes, that I ordered from Fat Birds Don’t Fly, last Thursday I think it was. Have turned up :). Can’t really say to much about them to far, since I have still to take them out for a test ride. They fit, which of course is always a good start. In the photo to the left you can see the new ones at the back and old ones at the front.

Hoping that the wind drops off a bit later, so I can see what they are like on the bike.

That’s all for now folks :).

Shimano M077 Mountain Bike SPD shoes

I have just gone and ordered myself some new cycling shoes. Since my summer ones have had better days. But they have done me very, very well indeed had them since 17th December 2005 (click link to read about them). Used them while doing the End to End cycle, they have been around Rutland Water many times and I even used them while doing my record 100 mile cycle last week.

I just hope the new ones that I am getting last me, half as long. I am getting “Shimano M077 Mountain Bike SPD shoes” which I am sure you worked out from the title of this post :). I have ordered them from Fat Birds Don’t Fly. I love that name, what a great name for a bike shop. They have set me back £49.99, but full RRP is £69.99 so a saving of 30%.

I will let you know how I get on with them, when they turn up. Which I am hoping will be this week at some point.
