The A-1s and CTT-1s are mostly gone. There weren't a lot in stock. I bought a pair of CTT-1s, rode twice, hated 'em, eBayed them.
Had a pair of the A-3s last year that I loved performance-wise, but had garbage QC issues Bont was very reluctant to deal with.
Can echo this issue with poor QA - I had to re-drill the soles of my A-1s myself after Bont gave me the runaround when told that their brand new shoes were drilled so far off that no cleats could be bolted on! Instead of helping me they kept on asking what cleats had been on the shoes before, as I guess they didn't read the part about "NEW" or didn't know what "NEW" means.
In addition, the backing nut "plates" (the round ones with the spikes that dig into the inside of the sole anchoring the nut) also popped out all too easily as they were simply placed into the hole and could easily tear out the soft inner part of the sole.
For a $59.95 shoe that would be sad, for a $400 shoe?
Great way to anger people who were foolish enough to trust Bont with their money.
Sadly, it doesn't help that they don't have a support telephone number, as the people answering email can't read very well, and don't seem to care much about the product or their reputation.
I had heard that they changed their US distributor and so had tried both before and after to get Bont to fix their mistake - struck out 2x.
I like the stiffness of the sole of the A-1s, and am basically going to ride them until they're worn out as I can't return them (I paid full price for mine and feel like a sucker now), and probably go back to the specialized's that I wore before them, or try Sidis. . .
No surprise that the A-1 and other Bont's are now being blown out at bonktown/ebay for 189/ (or $99 with an easily located online coupon). I wouldn't be too surprised if they totally remodel their cycling line or exit the market next, given these discount levels (75% discount) and lack of support for existing customers.
