I'm a creature of habit.
When I worked at a skate shop,
all I owned was ipaths.
Tons of them. A pair for every day of
You find something that works,
or fits... ya stick with it.
In contrast, my cycling shoes?
It took a couple pairs, but finally my
Sidi Dominator mtbs were/are

Problem is, I don't want to grab a

(I think I have more bikes than shoes)
hopefully these will stay in regular
rotation. Gonna go pick up an extra
set of cleats and go for a ride!
