Just found this and am looking to order a pair. What is the time frame to shipping to the USA. I am a 44 in Shimano and Gaerne. Thanks

Our shipping is surprisingly fast, an order today would be dispatched tomorrow and maybe make it by Friday.

You would be a 44 in VK as well.

Cool, a cleat slider system. That would be great for use with Aerolite pedals (small market I know) espectially if they could have a little left to right movement as well as plenty of rearwards adjustment.

There, I did think of something to change, just needed a little prompt from you Tin. :thumbup:

Low stack eg Bont's is one of my criteria.
Less is more.

Aha! Excellent. I'll see what I can do.

There is a line of shoes we are going to be working on that will mean low stack is something we will look at. But that's a little ways down the line.

I was a little worried about moving from Bonts to VK because of the stack issue, but other than having to adjust seat height by a few mm, I can't say I've really noticed any difference (from the higher stack) out on the road.

I'm not tall with a seat height of 663mm (from ctr BB to ctr of seat surface), so I'm conscious that one or a few mm to better height-endowed cyclists may not mean as much as it would to a shortie.

Did some team kicks for my team, who moved from Stinner to Baum. I reckon they came out ok.

Wow I’ve never seen Baums with racey headtubes, typically old man geo. Well done!

Cheap shots are cheap, right?

Varying sizes but all look like normal to me. No 'old man' geo.

The comment was a joke about the “typical” Baum rider you see in Australia. Thank you for sharing so many pictures.

I appreciate the 'joke', only you're still making a pretty lame generalisation.

And now doubling down when called out. Class.
