    Ok so i purchased these last year around December, I have used them on and off but honestly I just can't get on with them.

    I have used the older model Specialized Sworks for ages and had actually purchased the last two pairs in the UK as they where being discontinued. I just cannot find anything that matches them for my feet..

    So anyway, these are simply not going to be used as they should and I cannot justify having them in storage.

    Size 43.5 in Giro is universally agreed to fit like a 43 in Specialized, 43 in Bontrager and 43 in Mavic, as a point of reference.

    These now retail for about £200, I am sure they where more around the time I purchased them?. I may and I strees that have a new set of "yellow" Shimano cleats I can give with these otherwise sorry no cleats supplied. I also "think" i have the storage bag but I have recently moved so would need to dig, again no promises..

    They have a very stiff Easton carbon sole.

    So i am only asking for £65 to get them off my hands, they are used but perfectly servicable and stupidly light. I have just fitted a brand new footbed as I was given a spare.

    Still fresh and at worst would make a great second pair of shoes for someone.

    Now please read.

    I price everything fairly so please no offers. I do not offer postage as I like a person to inspect before buying that way the person can be a 100% happy wirh their purchase. Cash on collection only and pick up would be best from Black horse road tube station on the Vic line, Or I could meet at Kings cross if time allows..

    strictly first come first serve, no dibs to the end of time you turn up with the money they are yours so no moaning if you miss out, I am far to busy at the moment with work etc..

    Pm any questions or to arrange pick up..

    Regards

    Morning all,

    I would normally put this in the "touring section" but as this is the main focal point and as time is against me I thought I would put it here. (Feel free to move if needed)..

    I am on annual leave from the 5th July and really fancy doing another bike packing trip after my earlier London to Paris skirmish in April.

    I know most of the fun with any trip is the planning but I am snowed under at work and have bugger all time when at home, so I ask does anyone have a GPX route they can recommend for this route??.. I would like to keep it under or around 450 miles, No need for detailed info with camp sites etc as I will be camping wild. I just need a good solid route that I can work from, obviously if you have done this route and can give suggestions then I am very happy to hear them..

    Regards
