Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The Boa system itself is fine. It was where the lace/cable went through the routing attached to the upper of the shoe where it broke. Very clearly a simple wear issue after years of use. I was told the only solution was to replace the shoe. Also seemed like a great excuse to get some new shoes

The Boa dial mech was actually replaced on these shoes, again I think it just wore out but Boa is very good with their warranty.

Caught my eye when looking for things to use some REI gift card balance on, figured it'll be perfect when riding to the neighborhood microbreweries.

Negative. Need a handlebar or bum bag to complete the look.
