    Help Me Understand My New Shoes Please!

    Hi,

    I just took delivery of some new SixSixOne 05 Launch'es and a) I love them b) I have a question...

    On the underside (the sole) there's an oval shaped cutout of the sole which with a little pulling is clearly designed to come out... The shoes also came with screws and they rattle when you shake them (!).

    Am I correct in presuming that this is all down to compatability with clipless pedals? In which case (since I ride with flats) do I just ignore this?

    Thanks.

    As a secondary note, I need a new saddle - any suggestions (I've been riding with an SDG Bel Air)?
    I'm on the Twitter.

    You're right...the cutout is there in case you want to ride clipless. Mine have the same thing you're talking about. Since I only wear the shoes when I'm DJing, I never bothered with the cutout portion.

    As for saddles, be prepared to get a lot of different opinions. I run WTB Speed V saddles on all my bikes. I really like them, and you can usually find them cheap online.
