    Never a traction problem on the bike with my Race face pedals.

    This shoe is so comfortable I wear them at work, they are my primary shoe.. I am getting a second pair...
    The soul is tire rubber, wears like Iron, traction Is great....
    I've got five months or so of working, walking in parking lots alot, the souls are just now showing wear. they should last a year.
    The shoe washes out easy and dries overnight, three Insoles for different arches available...

    FYI IMO they fit small, I had to go up a size..

    * I used the Included washers that came with the pedals to shorten the pins up a little, still I have plenty of bite. When the pins wear down I can remove the washers and ride on.

    I also replaced the laces with Nathan lock laces, no fuss shock cords. I slip in these shoes now and they hold them at the perfect tightness ...

    How do these compare (If you even know) to the 510 Freerider XVI's?
    I have those, and they are kick ass.

    How are the soles on these shoes? How do you feet feel after a long ride?

    I put 510's on, walked around a minute and took them off, they felt like
    I was walking on wood, not for me. They were the right size and broken in already,,used. BUT feet vary from person to person, whats hard and has poor arch support for me may be perfect for another..

    The souls as I said are wearing great, plenty tacky on and off the bike.
    The only draw back was climbing up very steep stuff pulling the bike alongside me. That is very rare so not a real Issue. They don't have the deep lug tread of a hiking boot.

    Again as for comfort, I wear them all the time, they are my primary shoe and the way they are holding up the $120 cost is not an Issue.....

    Also enjoying my 2FO flats. Been about 4 months now and they are quite durable. No complaints, would buy again.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    The 510's were nice and light on my feet and If I had bought a new pair and broken them In with my feet they may have been fine but this 2FO..

    In the store when I first put them on and stood up, before I took the first step,, It was a done deal.....
    What can I say,, shoes are very hard to vet without trying them on...
    My second pair of 2FO's just may be the clipless ones,, $180...

    I'm told for general skills It's good to ride flats AND clipless, switching once or twice a season. And what I read was true,,I thought I could Bunny hop but when I tried it on my flats I found a skill I didn't have..
    Still working on that one now and then..
