A thick moisturising solution for comfort and reduced friction on endurance road rides. Apply to your seatpad on shorter rides or apply to both your skin and seatpad on epic sportives and stage races.

"the NOH should be considered as a new product.
if you are considering GPS dont look any further. This 500 is almost as cheap as an Edge 200 and the only difference to a non NOH 500 is the packaging and about $100 - which you can spend ona good set of knicks.
only con is that it doesnt come with an Australian AC adaptor, but you can just charge straight from your laptop."

 CX236C Road Shoes
CX236C Road Shoes
Fully featured road shoes with a Carbon Fibre sole, Full grain leather construction and the highly praised BOA lacing system, all at fantastic value.
 

Can you buy rubber wear pads for these shoes?

I have a pair of these shoes and love everything about them except the fact that there are no rubber wear pads, its sole straight onto concrete as soon as you get out of the pedals.

I have taken to gluing old bits of rubber on the soles but that is far from ideal. I sent an email to Lake directly and got no response (tsk tsk).

Was hoping someone may have a better solution

Cheers

The second Australian Wiggle Cycling Series event has arrived - The Wiggle Morning-Ton. Join Wiggle and ride over 100kms around the stunning Mornington Peninsula in glorious sunshine.
 

What is the route?

Interested to do this ride - but do you have a map of the route / profile so I can know what I am getting myself in for / the difficulty of the ride?

Ceramic rotational parts are making a huge impact on the cycle scene, Ceramic bearings equal increased speed at a lower effort and increased durability for your high-end components.
 

How many are in a package? i.e is price for 1 wheel or a pair?

I am pretty much the same dimensions as you and got the large. Fits great. Think medium would be too small for you

What Overhoes fits these shoes?

I've got a pair of these shoes but have been unable to find a pair of overshoes that fit them. The BOA system at the heel gets in the way. Can you recommend any particular one/brand?
