DRIVESIDE: DREAM UPDATE.
I decided to dress the Colnago with new shoes and came across a new pair of Mavic Ksyrium SLRs for a pretty decent deal. The first ride was spent dialing in the brake pads in an effort to attempt to minimize and eliminate the horrific death-of-a-baby-banshee screech that filled the neighborhood during every attempt to use the brakes — which I expected based on all the useful internet reviews I read prior to purchase. After some success with the brake noise elimination and two rides later, I’m confident that my investment in these stealthy sexy suckers was a good choice. Besides, doesn’t everybody need a great pair of all black shoes? Happy weekend everyone.
