Yash Katsumi's Bio

Currently living in China and still trying to find the elusive cycling culture here. When not riding, I like to find some amazing Japanese restaurants and izakayas here.

Nice post at a great price.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a very simple to adjust, beautifully made seatpost. Not super light at 236 grams for the 27.2mm, 270mm length, but respectable. I think that the bolt that adjusts the angle can be easily stripped, so it should be replaced.

I also had some seatpost slipping issues. I used some park carbon paste, and it seemed to have solved the problem. I thought it was a bargain at $76, at $45 it is a no brainer to buy it.

I usually don't buy cycling shoes on the net because I have wide square feet, and can't fit into most cycling shoes, but this sale was too good to pass up. Ordered on sunday and got them wednesday.

This is just an initial quick review of the fit, and not so much how they perform on the bike. Sorry!

I am currently using Shimano R220E(41.5) wide cycling shoes and Sidi Mega Dominators(42). The Fizik in a size 41 is slightly narrower than the Shimano wide versions, and noticeably narrower than the sidi Mega.

When I took the shoes out of the ridiculously ornate box, I was blown away by how beautifully made they were. Then I was a bit concerened by how narrow they looked. I had read that these shoes have ample toe box room, so I was hoping that they would work well with my boxy wide feet.

Once I actually tried the shoes on, I noticed the very high arch built into the sole. The uncomfortable feeling felt similar to what my custom orthotics feel like. Walking around, it feels painful, but on the bike, it gives stability to my pedaling, and is not noticeable. I felt that the shoes were tighter around the arch area than I am used to, but my feet have just enough room in the toe box. The left shoe felt like it had more arch built in that the right shoe. I just replaced the left insole with a thinner one, and now the fit feels perfect.

Hope to revise this review once I get some real riding in.

Happy holidays.
