The Humans are Dead...

...I poked was dead.

Last Saturday I helped a buddy move in Greenville, SC, so I didn't get to ride until Sunday. I did, however, stop at SunRift in Traveler's Rest to spend some cash that was burning a hole in my pocket. I needed some new bike shoes, and was debating between Lakes (which I've had before and liked), and Pearls. They had both, so I asked which ones they thought would be better for walking my bike around Pisgah, and ended up getting an AMAZING deal to take a pair of silver Lakes off their hands.


I tested my robot shoes out on Sunday by riding a very short but fun route that required zero hike-a-biking. I rode Grassy>Thrift>Black>Grassy>Upper Sycamore>276.

That's all I got for ya. Have a Merry Christmas.


  1. Those lakes are what I wear. Got over 12,000 miles on my last pair!

  2. Do you have the robot version, too? I had the model with the ratchet buckle thing and they were very nice, but dead before I moved here. I bought some cheap Specialized's from Wes when I first moved here, and I've been sliding around ever since. If you need new ones you should call them to see if they have your size. They're clearing them out because their Lake distributor went under.

  3. Merry Christmas!!

    I have a pair of lakes just like that with a little less silver that has worked wonders for me. My next pair will probably some Pearl Alp-x
