Learn to comprehend before passive aggresive reply.
"This is how I
rate cleats based on years of riding and racing". Let me repeat one more time, I said "I" not you, not Froome.
I would call it less passive agressive and more jacka$$ really.
So when you said..
“Yellow cleats = casual rider
Blue cleats = avid rider
Red cleats = competitive rider who dialed-in bike fit.”
...you ment “I”, as in you only. Me and froome are excluded. I should have known though, because rider was singular. The rider was you. That’s cool, and thanks for the clarification of your cleat choice as you progressed in biking skill/experience.
My personal rating of rider skill based on cleat choice (and this includes froome, Sagan, your mother) goes something like this:
Cleat colors mean something?!?! = casual rider
Whatever was the best deal online = cheap(price smart) rider
Whatever they find works best for them = avid rider
Whatever they find works best for them = competative rider
Whatever they want, as long as their sponsor makes it= Pro rider
Whatever they want = top level pro rider (note, most go with sponsor options as they care more about sponsorship and winning)
Time cleats = veteran rider/ex pro with knee/hip problems
Whatever cleat is lightest = weight weenie
Whatever cleat lasts the longest = fomdo/endeuro rider
Flats = hipsters (with the beards and vegan girlfirend)
