      The Keen Commuter sandals are great if you're in to SPD compatible shoes (I've begun switching back to flat pedals everywhere).  Great for riding and very comfy to walk in.  The only downside I've noticed is that if you slide the cleat all the way to the back like I do, then its pretty close to the rubber sole, so you may lose a bit of float. On some flat pedals (notably Grip Kings), the cleat slides on top of the pedal, but that may be all SPD shoes.

      They aren t for clipless, but try Crocs. The ventless are GREAT for wet riding, especially with thick wool socks. Otherwise, I wear Wescos. Not light, but they

          The problem with Crocs, (yes, even the thicker-soled Rx versions) is that the sole is way too flexible. You would need to be riding with monster-width pedals

You would need to be riding with monster-width pedals to avoid the foot flex you have riding in Crocs. BTW, I'm not a Crocs hater. I'm on my third pair, but use them exclusively for lounging around the house.

            When I was a kid, I just rode barefoot. Shoes just make my feet stink.

                I found that crocs were AWESOME for riding in. I have stiff shoes: they are Wesco John Henry's and Wesco Packers. I wear crocs when i am looking for comfort, or out for a quick ride to the doctor 3 miles away.

                Then again, I have very wide pedals. Boots aren't comfortable for biking without wide pedals, and I ordered mine special -- I think they cost 20$ or so, and are rebuildable.

                  Doug,

                  I apologize if you already received this...have you sold the xtracycle yet? I'm very interested in a used 700c frame. Would the freeloader stuff be included? Let me know if it's available, b/c I'm very interested! Email me at trent@....

                  Thanks,

It is fairly well used, but nothing is wrong with it and I'm pretty sure it will clean up well. I was thinking maybe somebody who already has the full set up might want a second frame, for a different bike maybe. Anyway, if I do this I would sell the frame for $100 plus shipping which shouldn't be too bad if I can cut down a box and avoid the oversize charges.
