Also bought some black Fiziks because they were half price.

Wow, the box is lovely. Ridden them twice now thou not really getting on with them. Arch is very pronounced and the tongue hurts my boney feet.

No one I know that has tried Fizik has ever stuck with them. I severely disliked mine.

I never think to much into a shoes appearance when it comes to ventilation and "coolness", but I've always felt they look like a really warm/hot shoe.

That's why I waited til they were only $150 - if they're not my cup of tea, I'll either store them in the cupboard or sell em off cheap.

Damn, sounds like you had surgery at the beginning of the week? Hopefully it worked. Good luck in your recovery!
