  1. I friend of mine told me about On-cloud running shoes which I've never heard of before, maybe because I live under a rock or it's because I hate running. But anyways, to make a long story short, I was curious so I asked to give me a link and I will have a look. So I had a look at the link https://tifosisports.co.za Tifosi Sports is the official importer/distributor in SA and you are right, the shoes are pretty expensive, and they do not give any discounts. If you've been here long enough, you'd know the next best thing people do is to do a search on the web and see who else sells it and perhaps you can pick up a bargain or two. You guessed it, there are some websites selling it for less than half the price! Then I was thinking, this sounds too good to be true! After further investigations, etc, etc....All scams, some looking VERY legit, and others selling cheap chineez look-alikes! So be warned people. Another thing I picked up are the courier companies.... There must be a syndicate at work here as well. When you order something online, the supplier uses a curier company to collect and deliver. There are workers/agents/drivers in these companies that now go and pick up your parcel for delivery. They have all your details e.g. name, address, phone number. You get a sms from a +27 08708... number: Due to the wrong delivery address of your package, the delivery of the package has been suspended, please update it in time: https://s.id/Postoza You put in your address, then submit. After you submit you then need to provide your credit card details as it was delivered to the "incorrect" address in case they need to charge you for it. Edit: BTW, the https://s.id/Postoza was a dead give away, but I had a peek as i was curious.
  2. Hi everyone, I’m looking to get the commuting shoes. Do anyone have them and know how we could get it into the country?
  3. I'm looking for recommendations for a pair of super grippy and good quality shoes to be used for trail/enduro mountain biking in conjunction with flat pedals! Five Ten seem to be the gold standard, but sadly are no longer available in SA it seems. My budget is ideally R1500+-
  4. Looking for outsole lugs for a Specialized MTB shoe 2016 model as per pic attached. Size EUR 43. Freewheel cycology don't have my size because they apparently not making them anymore. Olympic cycles I suspect called them and simply cannot assist. It looks like I have to call on the hubbers for #assistance.
  5. Hi Hubbers, Does anyone know who the current supplier or retailer is for Northwave. Shoes / socks /apparel ect. Any bike shops that stock their products and is there a demand for Northwave in South Africa? Your thoughts?
  6. Hey guys, Random problem, my Specialized shoes and XTR pedals creates an awful lot of squeaking, to the point where I'm considering chopping the shoe sides away to minimize contact with the pedals. The sound it seems are all from where the rubber on the sides of the cleats touches the pedal surfaces next to the clips. Anyone else have this problem or a good solution for it - before I take my dremel to my shoes? My Shimano SPD shoes did not do this - so I'm used to a pretty quiet ride, and especially at 4:30am when it's just me on a climb, the sound just seem amplified.
  7. Anybody custom painted their own shoes? What did you use and how did it turn out? Do paint pens last or should you use acrylic paint?
  8. What shoes are good options and where to buy for flat pedals? Options other than Five Ten's as they are a bit pricy.
  9. The "Cyclists with a "Running" Problem" thread has so much valuable info in it, but it's hitting 500 pages now. Since we chat about running shoes so often, I thought it would be better to split these posts out into its own thread so others can find this info easily. I'll start. Found this interesting for the Asics fans: https://www.runningshoesguru.com/content/best-asics-running-shoes/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=asics_running_shoes_the_2018_updated_guide&utm_term=2018-04-06 Some reviews on the shoes I have used: New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr (Neutral Shoe) Terrible long distance running shoe. Ate the back of my feet and made my feet numb. The store assistant admitted that they are having issues with these shoes. Didn't play around with new lacing techniques as I returned them (got a full refund towards another set of New Balance). A nice looking shoe, and would work well in the gym and for cross fit style training as it feels flatter. They did feel nimble and fast though. New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v6 (Neutral Shoe) My very first pair of real running shoes. They didn't give me a single issue, not even a blister. Have 1000km on them and they still have some life left. No tears in the fabric and slight wear on the soles. I suspect I will get 1300km out of them. They do feel big and "boat" like as they have a wide toe box. They are also quite pricey though (around R2,500). New Balance Fresh Foam 880s (Neutral Shoe) This shoe is very comfortable, feels faster and smaller than the 1080s. Also looks nicer than the 1080s. These shoes however make my feet numb 20 minutes into a run, no matter which lacing pattern I use, or how loose they are. The tongue of this shoe seems to have more padding in it, which I think is what is causing the issue. I do have high arches, but not overly high, so I would be cautious.
  10. Hi there Wonder whether anyone can give me some advice regarding suitable cleats and shoes for my new road bike. I'm intending to replace my ten year old Olympic shoes with a new pair. Any recommendations? I've been struggling with the Ryder cleats that came with the new road bike. They are not the easiest to 'click into' - which makes stopping and starting slightly frustrating. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also of places near Southern Suburbs where to get the items. Having a bike fitting on Monday - so need to purchase before then. Really appreciate any advice and suggestions Thanks
  11. Is there anywhere in SA selling sensibly prices shoes for flat mtb pedals? I see things like the O'Neal Stinger and Ion Raid overseas for under R600.
  12. I have been riding with my current cleats for the last 4 years... and now needs changing. In an attempt to loosen them I have stripped the Hex-screws, i.e. the screw-hole where the hex-tool should fit is now rounded. Anyone faced this issue before? Any tricks / hacks or advice out there? Could probably drill through screw out but how do I get the remainder of the screw and cleat out? I could also damage the thread of the "receiving-plate" inside the shoe? WS

  15. Any geniuses out there got any ideas on DIY cleat shims or know where I can purchase some?
  16. Hi, I have a pair of black road cycling shoes (specialized torch 2.0) and they get super warm, it becomes unbearable. I have to literally spray my water bottle over my feet to cool them down. Any other cyclists who have similar issues with black shoes or is it specific to this model shoe?
  17. Good Morning Hubbers! I have a pair of Greg Minnaar Hellcat Pro Clipless shoes. (Those pimp white ones) I am getting a pair of Flat Pedals delivered in this week, and want to try and make the switch and see how I manage without being planted to the bike permanently. I am in need of some "Cleat Plate Covers" like these ones: http://forums.mtbr.com/attachments/apparel-protection/1069549d1462961488t-five-ten-hellcat-plate-ciovers-801901.jpg http://forums.mtbr.com/attachments/apparel-protection/1069550d1462961562t-five-ten-hellcat-plate-ciovers-bottom.jpg It would be mighty fine if I could find some of these original ones to purchase online somewhere. Alternative option is to make some myself out of Pratley Frogs Eggs (Hand Mould-able Plastic) But I would follow up on any leads to get these originals. Cheers, Burgermeester \M/
  18. So I bought a pair from Buycycle. Ordered them in a UK7. The same as all my other shoes. They arrived quickly. I loved them the moment I opened the box but when I fit them on they were too tight. Not the kind of tight you're confident enough will stretch out either. I had to return them. Did some digging and according to some user reviews on CRC. Ordering one size bigger is recommended when taking these Mavics. Wish I read that before I ordered. Nevertheless. Despite the superb service I got from Buycycle. From the prompt communication and how easily they accommodated me with regards to returning the shoe. They were unable to source a size UK8 elsewhere. (Thank you Ashley, I appreciate the effort) So I'm hoping that some local Mavic stockist has these shoes in a UK8 somewhere. Its a long shot. But I'm not ready to give up on them and consider alternatives just yet. http://static.jensonusa.com/images/Default-Image/MobileImage/0/SH242B01.jpg
  19. Hi, Can anyone recommend Ladies riding shoes for flat pedals? I ride with Spec 2F0's want something similar but for a Lady and not 2F0 because mine are already falling apart they're really good but for that price I feel they should last longer. Thank you
  20. Hi Hubbers, I'm the weekend worrier that is obsessed with a decent pair of shoes. As a result i bought a pair of Geaerne shoes featuring a fancy carbon sole. During my Sunday ride a section of the carbon sole broke off from the rest of the sole. The shoes are 3 years old with less that 2000km to them. Is this something that anyone has come across? should I get the agents involved? if so can anyone point me in a direction other than my LBS as they do not work with the brand anymore. Any assistance would be appreciated.
  21. been riding my same shoes for 5 years now and they are literary falling apart, looking to get a new pair sort of mid range , any suggestions ?
  22. I am looking for the best place in Gauteng to by Specialized gear and accessories. It seems to be super pricey, isn't there an outlet store somewhere or is that wishful thinking...
  23. Hello all, I want to buy my first MTB shoe pair. My knowledge on MTB shoes is very weak and would like some recommendations from you guys who went through a couple of shoes. Okay, so my budget is R1000 (still need to get clipless pedals too). Currently looking at getting this: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/za/en/dmt-borealis-mtb-carbon-italy-shoes/rp-prod150006 To be honest, I only went for this due to the words 'Carbon' and secondly the price. Is carbon shoes any good? Or should I go for other material? Also noted that it does not come with cleats. Will any cleats fit that specific shoe? Overall on what I do: I like doing ride (40km) over the weekend and will be doing the Karoo2Coast next year. If this is necessary, I am a very light rider. Any advice will be appreciated. ~ André
  24. The MotoDiva are women’s specific all-round mountain bike shoes from Specialized. They feature the popular Boa dial for quick and easy fastening and adjustment, as well as an injection moulded nylon sole with SlipNot rubber tread for good grip when not on two wheels. They also have a hard moulded toe box for extra protection in the event of rock strikes. Click here to view the article

Following this trend, leading South African footwear brand, Olympic International, has launched its new range of cycling gear to the public. Click here to view the article
