Guilty. I did hit 48 mph on a downhill near my house this morning. Strava says only 47.4 but what do they know?

Nice shoes. How many miles do you get out of a set of cleats? I use covers off the bike and I still wear them out pretty darn fast like every 1500-2000 miles.

Did you ever give a marshmallow to a dog? Cheap thrills.

I dripped a little Pro Link on my chain today. I could post this in that other thread and get chastised for ignoring facts.

Correct. Look at the clubís page and draw your own conclusions:

Been wanting a black pair with double Boas, and these were about half off. Couldnít pass that up.

I get about the same wear, but frequently change them earlier if they start getting hard to release.

13000 ft in 178 miles? That's silly...

You're living dangerously close to the edge.

I'm still using Look Delta pedals. The genuine Look cleats last a long time but they squeak and squawk when I'm climbing. I have a near new set of pedals and just bought new cleats and they still make way too much noise. They're quiet if I spray them with Pledge, at least for a while.

I've noticed cleats are not what they once were. They wear out fast now days. I used to get 2 seasons from a set of cleats. Now it 2 pairs to season.
EDIT, I use Shimano sl

Took the cue from your comments.

I prefer 100 feet/mile but one must compromise sometimes.

Mojo31 08-28-22 02:16 PM

For those on SPD-SL, red, blue or yellow?

datlas 08-28-22 02:17 PM

I use Look Keos and get about 5000 miles from my right cleat and 10000 miles from the left. Right wears faster presumably because that’s my unclip side.
