I did a 2 hour road ride on my road bike last week. I use shimano SPDs and shimano shoes (the shoes are probly 15 years old).
First my foot went numb about an hour into the ride and then my toes began hurting.
Will new shoes help with this?
I stand and stretch on the bike every fifteen minutes and pedal standing/sitting on climbs to help blood circulation but it doesn't seem to help. One hour rides are fine and two hour rides begin to numb fingers and toes.
I loosened the straps on the shoes so they weren't tight after the first hour. Obviously it didn't help.
Also got numb hands. I've setup the bike so my seat/arm/leg position are comfy...thinking about getting those Specialized gloves.
When I ride for two or more hours off-road I don't have these problems. I'm sure it's because we tend to move around a lot more doing off-road.
