Super cool. I still ride my Bridgestone RB-1, occasionally (Long live Greg LeMond!)In honor of the successful conclusion (skip to the recap at 24:45 if needed) today of this year’s Tour de France, and of finally having some clean air to breathe, I did a hilly ride on my road bike just now wearing these thrifted Shimano SPD road shoes for the first time.

I bought it new locally at a scandalously low close out price of about $2500 five years ago and love the compact gear set. Four fewer teeth on each of the front chainrings make it easier to climb hills, at the expense of less top speed in sprints, which I don’t do anyway.
