New Shoes

For the last 12-18 months I have been using a pair of DMT RS3 shoes donated by a friend (thanks Gareth) as he couldn't get on with them.  After a couple of rides and a bit of adjustment of cleats and straps I found them to be very comfortable if slightly large for me.  The soles offered a reasonable amount of grip in all but the worst conditions and flexed enough to allow walking for those steep climbs that I should have trained harder for.
