I'll provide the actual mm width for my size in a few days when I receive it (had to buy online). I tried on a pair locally and found the upper to be wide, which I liked a lot. Hopefully they'll ride as well as they feel when I tried them on.

Yeah I looked in to DMT but wasn't sure how the fit was compared to my S Works

The Prismas feel narrower than the S-Works (2011) but still wider than something like Sidi Ergo 3s. I've got all 3 in size 46 to compare, got lots of other shoes from other brands too if anyone needs a comparison with a specific brand.

And to keep on topic, I just received a pair of these:

I didn't exactly buy this, but I did win it from the week 1 drawing of the Lemond Revolution trainers.

Resistance isn't as much as a fluid trainer, but it's more than adequate for heart rate interval training when I'm not able to get out on the road, after work, classes, etc. Platform isn't as wide as some other trainers, so I can't jump hard into a sprint, but getting a better riser block might help me with that a little as my front end is slipping whenever I try to sprint out of the saddle. Also now I have a trainer to warm up for crits!

I couldn't agree more, they are nirvana. Such a refreshing feeling to not have to worry about ones feet.

Do those Look keo grip cleats last more than the standard version. I use speedplay, but my father uses Look, and i have to change his cleats once a year, and he doesn't make that many km's (around 5000Km a year i think).
Happy Trails !!!

Once a year is about right for me too, and I do similar kms to your father. But they're cheap and I've never been bothered by replacing them that often. The rubber grip part doesn't last long at all though.
Nice bike... you ever take it off any sweet jumps?

Finally got some pics: Love this thing! I posted a short review at the new FWB forum, been using it for a little more than 2 weeks now. No longer using my whisper plus. Best part(s) are the improved ventilation (as if the whisper plus wasn't airy enough) and retention system.
