The new Sidi shoes fit very well and I'm very pleased with those, too. I hooked up Gary to the bike, along with the cadence sensor and handlebar mount, and that worked very well. I think the cadence sensor will help me A LOT with many of my biking problems. Tom, who knows these things, is always telling me that I am in too hard of a gear, and should shift up and have a higher cadence. I never really knew what to make of this or how to apply it to my riding style, but the sensor puts it into black and white and takes the wondering right out of it. So we'll see what kind of change this will have. I've got to figure out if there's a way to set the Garmin to recognize cadence zones, the way it does for heart rate zones. I'm sure the thing would be beeping *all the time*, but it would certainly send the message!
I've named the bike The Snake, 'cause it's just so smooooth, and kinda slithery, in a good way.
