Good job. Your numbers are similar to mine, except I haven't been over 70
miles yet. The problem now is my feet...either my toes get all weird or the
bottom of the feet, right below where the pedal is, start burning like hell.
That's what happened yesterday. The Brooks saddle is working out great!

Sounds like it's time for you to get a new cassette. I bought a new one
when I got my new wheels.

For my ride yesterday, I had an apple the day before, some gatoraide and
poweraid before, some chicken breast before leaving, a balance bar about
halfway, and gatoraide during (I took powder with me so I could mix some
more). I had another chicken breast after I got back.

I have yet to find the need to lie on the floor. What's that about?

When I first started riding in the summer of 2001, I would get so tired that
after I walked in the door, I would lie down on the cool tile of the kitchen
floor and rest. Eventually, I didn't need that, but I remember those days of
trying to appear not-tired in front of my cycling buddies. Cycling is one
sport that shows you your progress relatively fast.

Good job. Your numbers are similar to mine, except I haven't been over 70
miles yet. The problem now is my feet...either my toes get all weird or

the
bottom of the feet, right below where the pedal is, start burning like

hell.
That's what happened yesterday. The Brooks saddle is working out great!


I had the burning feet problem with my Shimano 515 pedals. I changed to Look
pedals and it went away. Also, make sure you have enough room to move your
toes around in your shoes. The problem, it seems, is a nerve between the 3rd
and 4th toes. The larger platform of the Look pedals spreads the force over
a larger surface and decreases the chance of getting this nerve irritated.
I was also advised to put some kind of pad under the metatarsal arch or use
orthotics or get stiffer shoes. I got the Look pedals AND stiffer soled
shoes and the problem went away.

Damn.....something told me this was a problem that was going to require
spending money to fix. Are the shoes you got still available? I really
don't see any other solution than what you suggest as there is nothing else
that I can think of that will make this problem go away. I wouldn't mind
having a larger platform those, since I find myself something riding
unclipped - like starting off into an intersection, etc. How do the Look
pedals compare to the SPDs in terms of clipping in/out and float?
