Ive been riding my road bike for around 3 years now and im still using my first pair of bike shoes, some Scott model which were approximately £40/£50 when I bought them. I have no complaints with these shoes, but I have heard more expensive better shoes would make any rider faster? Does anybody know if this is true, and if so how much, or any reasoning for this? I would imagine, its down to stiffness and weight? Cheeeeeeers
These shoes are nearly new, I've only worn them for a few rides but they're a bit small for my clown-like feet
So, they look and smell like new with just some very faint scuffs on the sole (just heel and toe) from walking. The uppers are like new.
Black and red.
rrp is £99
Price with postage: £60

I have a pair of Shimano R087 shoes for sale in white. Lovely condition and only used once on a 20 mile dry ride last October, sat in the cupboard since. Looking for £40 ono posted by a secure way. Size is Euro 46, I'm an 11 and they fit me fine.
Is there anybody out there who is familiar with the Decathlon home brand's Cycling shoes:
B'Twin Road Caycling shoes 9
After trawling both the internet and my LBS, they seem like a relative bargain, what with their carbon sole and ratchet mechanism.
I thought that I would ask the largest cycling fraternity that I know of, the Road.cc forum.
I hope that you're not bored of these questions.
Pictures to follow.
For sale a pair of new but extremely lightly used Bont Vaypor's.
Size 41, White and Black shiny microfibre
Cost £269 new
Sell these in the original box for £130 plus £10 insured next day delivery courier service.
They have been used for 1 week and have been heat molded once. They still look like new and only have the odd surface scratch on the sole as any shoe would get from it's first use.
The shoes insole still has the sticker on and as these were used with custom footbeds there are no marks to the insole.
Having been out in the recent wet weather lately I've started to notice (or rather it has been discreetly been pointed out by my wife) that my cycling shoes absolutely stink.
Now I don't normally have particularly smelly plates of meat and this doesn't happen to my other shoes but it seems the combination of sweat and rain water makes them honk. They are mid-range Northwave road shoes and they have an artificial upper which I suspect is the problem. They are currently stuffed with paper and in the shed, a safe distance away.
After getting back into cycling after a long breske I need advice on clipless shoes/pedals. Having never used before I was wondering what was easier road or mtb type.
All help with this query will be most welcome,
My beloved white cycling shoes have started to take on an unsightly yellow hue of late, does anyone have and super-scrimping tips to bring them back to their original bright white colour?
