Any cyclist looking to go to the next level in their cycling lifestyle and gain a little more speed and efficiency will find that one way to vastly improve your performance on a bike is to use cycling shoes and pedals. The Invention of clipless pedals revolutionized the race world back in the day but now the technology has trickled down to most aspects of cycling. More and more recreational riders are starting to use clipless pedals and the racing seen will likely be using them for as long as we can see.
Shoes are a very personal item for people to buy. Not everyone has the same size or shape of foot which is obvious, but beside size there are more thing to consider. People have different expectations from cycling shoes, some people want a ultra light, stiff soled, well ventilated racing shoe while others want a compliant soled comfortable shoe that is easy to walk in while off the bike at the Coffee Shop. For this reason Bicycle Heaven stocks a wide variety of shoes from two of the top shoe manufacturers Giro and Northwave. Both of these companies make a great shoe but they have a very different style and fit from each other and that is why we stock more then one brand of shoes.
If you are looking to replace the shoes you have or try out your first pair of clipless pedals and shoes come in and get fit for a shoe that works for you. Also for any first time clipless pedal users we are always wiling to teach customers how to use the shoes and pedals that they purchase from our store. This will consist of installing the pedals and cleats for you and allowing you to ride your bike indoors on a trainer (so you wont fall over) and we will talk you through using the pedals effectively.
