Bont Gen2 Crono – Exclusive Pictures of the New Release
LOS ANGELES – At the finish line of the Tour of California I was about to catch up with Bont’s very own CEO Steven Nemeth. At first glance he gave the impression of a completely composed and polished Australian gentleman. Then I looked at his shoes and saw all the stuff mom warned me about. That’s because earlier this year the Bont Crono, a time trial specific shoe, became...

Tour of California Road Shoe Wrap
THOUSAND OAKS, CA – Snow in Tahoe, strange expo venues away from the course and a mountaintop finish up Mt. Baldy brought a different flavored Amgen Tour of California to the west coast this year. One thing was the same as the biggest news of the week came away from the course and off-the-bike instead of from the race course. I’m talking about the 60 Minutes upstaging the racing...

And even then we didn’t pay much attention until local bike shops started picking up the line. I found them on display and my curiosity piqued after getting a pair in my hands. At first glance they offer the sleek performance, look and feel that we are used to seeing in shoes...

Armstrong Cracked Cleat And Team Radio Shack Shoes
Armstrong Tweets From Tour De France “Got some good “road rash” on the hip and elbow. Bike mangled, cleat on the shoe completely cracked in two. Hope it’s dry tomorrow” Im guessing Lance will be ok and you can bet a fresh pair of shoes and cleats were ready to go. Makes you wonder if they have a pair already broke in or if  they anticipate needing to switch out foot...
