Got a new pair of Asic gt-2130's for Father's day.
You really don't notice how far gone your favourite pair of shoes are until you step into the new model after > a few hundred miles on the old ones (I ran 2 marathons and a least one half in the old ones). I took them out for a spin this AM. That little pain in my knee went away and the shoe is very responsive ...picked up some speed. Ran the whole 7 miles without any problem. Shoes fit great right out of the box.
The bike is in for repair seems I had a couple of cracked/broken nipples which caused the rim to come out of true on the rear wheel. He said that the casette was loose also.
I am going to have to get myself a big book on how to identify bike parts and problems...seems like it is an easy fix...I want to get back on that saddle asap.
