Size 49/50? Is your name Sideshow Bob? ;)

Haha! Size 13 boots in normal sizes. Buying shoes is a ball ache. Shimano do a wide fit shoe in sideshow bob size thankfully.

Cant wait for them to arrive so i can have a first go with clips.

I started off with a set of 525s in '93 I think, that was the best upgrade of my KHS at that time. That set lasted for a loooong time, I still have them and they're in pretty good nick. Other bikes have 959s, 535s and 770s mounted. All work with each set of shoes and all work perfectly, function in the same manner and do what they have to do.

Shimano did a brillliant job here.

best pedal system ever! M737s on my retro rockets, and the modern XT on my newer bike also. they held such a mystique to me as a youngster circa 91 92, when we all rode flats and were very sceptical of clipless pedals. best thing i ever did was teach myself to use them..i hate riding bikes without them now
