"These shoes, replacement for the previous excellent ones, are heavier and more robust. Very disappointed the old ones are no longer available (wore out 3 pairs); these are more expensive. I was afraid they would be very hot; however, so far no problems with hot feet. It's too early yet to see how well they will wear.
The top retaining strap is only just long enough to reach across my foot, which is short and broad, some may struggle to secure these shoes."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Rugged
Cons: Bulky

"Warning - the newish Shimano cleats with rubber pontoons (SH71) will not work with Shimano A520 SPD pedals. The rubber outriders foul the pedal and you cannot lock-in.
I was foolish enough to file them down thinking they would work when they were more worn down, Wrong! I managed to get the pedal/cleat locked together but then could not release them. Eventually I had to dis-assemble the pedals to free them.
"
Cons: Poor Fit, take care with compatability

"An indoor trainer meets a need when its too icy to go out. The Elite Crono Fluid ElastoGel Trainer is simple to set-up and use and does the job well. My needs are simple; that is, to stop my performance dropping while unable to ride out. I find, as most people do, that an hour on the machine in the garage drags on and seems much longer - just the opposite to being out riding really."
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, Good Fit

Are these compatible with shimano A520 'touring' pedals?

how do you stop the top ratting around?

The plastic frame fitting is designed to trap the top and hold it securely. Make sure you have not fitted the holder upside down.
