2003 Tour de France video: Armstrong loses his pedal on the Tourmalet
Johan Bruyneel’s reaction was, “When Lance crashed, I thought it was over.” That was 2003, now as the 2009 Tour de France welcomes Lance Armstrong back into the peloton let’s take a quick look back and remember a past pedal mishap in racing history. Shoes seldom play a role in...
2009 Shimano AM40 All-Mountain Enduro Shoes
These little jumpers are a classic case of when not to judge a shoe by its cover. They do look slightly quirky – even a funny. The time saved on styling definitely went into putting together a well thought-out rider. There is a raised and padded inner ankle protector and a protective pad over the...
Cycling Shoes styled to look like Tennis Shoes
If you’re spinning towards the beach or the park and looking for a tennis style shoe you can wear while you throw the Frisbee around – check these ideas out.

Shimano SH-R132L Road Shoe Review
At $170 the Shimano SH-R132L may not seem like a bargain but it actually is the least expensive race shoe that includes a micro-adjusting buckle on the upper strap.

Shimano SH-M300 Mountain Bike Shoes
The first pair of clipless shoes I owned were made by Shimano. They had a grey canvas Cordura upper, shoestring laces, a rubber sole that flexed over the pedal as I rode. They were a recreational level shoe and no matter how tightly I tied the laces the first sign of water would loosen them up from...
The Nike Conundrum
I’ve ridden Shimano shoes most of my cycling life. Ever since they started making them. I rode Nike shoes too, some even back in the 80s. It’s always been a money thing because Nikes tend to always be about five or ten dollars more. The last pair of Nike cycling shoes I owned was during the Lance...
Shimano SH-R151 Road Shoes
