Nope. But I don't have zippers on my booties.

I do but they aren't stuck. only use them below 40F and that is rare. even more rare now since I'm a former cyclist. :(

Happens to me every fall. Silicone spray lubricant is Plan A. Chain lube is Plan B. If all else fails, use a couple safety pins (assuming zipper stuck at bottom).

I coated it in wd40 and had to use pliers. But it worked. Prolly as you posted this.

I only need mine for sustained temps below freezing. Very helpful then.

Mojo31 10-19-21 07:16 PM

If it's below freezing, the bike stays in the garage. After all, it'll be 60 tomorrow.

Interesting flight to Houston this afternoon. About half the load were immigrants, and appeared to be Afghans in the process of relocating. They were not familiar with the norms of our sir travel. Interesting people watching.

I must be warm blooded booties come out below 45.

Side note, mine are not insulated. More designed to keep water and wind at bay.

Trsnrtr 10-19-21 07:19 PM

Booties suck. I use insulated shoes.

I have some nice neoprene booties. But I haven't used them, since I got my insulated shoes.

indyfabz 10-19-21 07:53 PM

It ainít your booties, itís your beauty.

In other news, when I returned home this afternoon I noticed that someone had unzipped the seat post bag on my Surly. Must have happened yesterday while the bike was locked outside of work or Whole Food. Nothing in there but two tubes and tire levers. Nothing was missing.

Thatís why we canít have nice things.

I've always used booties, but insulated shoes sound warm.

He's wanted to play football, so we let him play NFL flag last spring. Team had no coach so I volunteered. We won the championship last spring and got slaughtered this fall.

It's ok. We had out first basketball practice yesterday. I have some big raw kids that just need to learn a Patrick Ewing or Hakeem move. We could be fine or not.

Don't update it if it works and even further ,I wouldn't even download the axs app.
I'm still trying to figure out how it became corrupted. Shifters, rear and front derailluers, all had different firmware. Can it access my internet on its own ? $240.00 for a new derailluer. Sram stopped emailing me on Monday. Kinda washed their hands of me. There are a lot of people having this problem on their website. It's memory corruption during the update process. They have even rolled the update back to this one from 2.17.0 and it's still going on.
I'm about to get $240.00 worth of unwanted intercoursing because I bought this groupo on ebay. Once they learn that, they'll stop talking to me. I've been saying it for a while Sram as a company has changed, they are a company run by complete Richards.
