Don said to give them 100 miles, but I figure to give them closer to 200 or so before I see if any adjustment is necessary. The one thing I'm playing with now is cleat placement and if a saddle adjustment is necessary. Has anyone else had to make a change?


I thought about lowering the saddle to accommodate the thinner sole. However I am also switching to a crankset that is 5mm shorter so that will cancel it out.

I will post some pics later tonight.
I rode about 300 miles in mine over the past few days. I like them but they still need to come down a width. I have to tighten down the straps pretty good, and I notice things like when I clip out that it takes more of a twist because the shoe gives.
Nice color combo on yours- A little old school Jeff Spicoli.

I think that's just the pictures. I don't believe there is a rigid toe box version. I guess mine do have a TINY crease but I chalked that up to trying to make a flat piece of material fit a round shape. It doesn't bother me at all.

Nice color scheme on those shoes!


Thanks Dubbayoo... I'm really happy with how they turned out. Believe me, I must have changed my mind about color combos a hundred times!

Boots2000... can you post a pic of the crease in your shoe? I'm curious to see if we're comparing apples and apples here.

Good call on the "Spicoli." I hadn't even thought of that!

Sorry you are having so many issues. Hit the 100 mile mark today on ride #3 (I HATE work and I HATE daylight savings time) and it was the best ride yet. First ride, probably some placebo effect there, they felt awesome... yesterday, some issues here and there... today fantastic. I got about halfway through the ride, stopped and tightened straps, and the rest of the ride it was like they weren't even there. I've worn them with two different socks, and I think that may have caused the issues yesterday. Same socks first and third ride, both with great success. Socks I had on yesterday didn't feel as comfortable. All three are very thin, however.

Definitely shouldn't be any "play" inside the shoes. When I crank my straps down the shoe seems to mold right around my foot. Hope you get it worked out ASAP.

I have noticed the shoes are much comfortable riding than they are just standing around in them. They feel tight across the top at the toe joints but once I'm riding the shoes totally disappear from thought. It feels like walking around my apt in sock feet.

Spot on. While standing, it seems my feet are being contorted... especially the right arch. Once riding, however, all that goes away. Long group ride tomorrow, so it'll be the first real test.

I just got mine back from adjustments. They seem to be tight enough now. I finally know what you guys are talking about when you say that your shoes are snug and form fitting without having to pull the velcro super tight. I have plenty of training scheduled this weekend so they will get a good test.

Someone was asking me about my shoes the other day since my feet are such different lengths so I thought of this thread for revival.
Since 2008 I have ridden exclusivity on one pair of D2s. I have brought them in to Don twice now to get the soles re-glued and little rubber pads replaced. They are still going strong since 2008 with ~3000 miles each year.
