Cycling Shoe Sizing Chart for Different Brands

October 29, 2008

Well if you are reading this you are likely an internet shopper when it comes to fulfilling your cycling apparel and accessories wants and needs. But heck its difficult to make a judgment on cycling apparel for brands you have no experience with. Ideally, you would like to go to an LBS to try sizing but this just might mean driving around for miles to different stores that carry the brands and sizes you want. With the cost of gas as it is I’d rather not do that. Heck its nice to just sit here in front of the computer and just click away to all the different bike swag sites.

I’ve been the kind of guy to stick with one cycling shoe until the sole tears apart before I buy a new one (true). With so many deals that you can find for new or even lightly used items around its become rather inexpensive to expand your selection. However, there is the issue of sizing that becomes a barrier to many like me. Does the Shimano size 42 I am comfy with equate to a Northwave 42? Turns out that the Northwaves run a little large and would need a 41.5. The standard on sizing for shoes or clothes seems left to interpretation by the different manufacturers so there is trial and error involved, which can be a waste of money and time. To make it a little easier when considering a brand of shoe you’ve never fitted before, I’ve search the internet for shoe sizing charts and have compiled this info into a single chart below. If you have any references for Pearl Izumi or other brands not on the list please chime in.

There were many many women riders in this century and much more so than your typical century.  Before the hammering started, which means cameras were out and everybody was still smiling, our group came upon this sight.

Siclista Cycling Club

August 14, 2008

Hey there,

I’ve been an avid cyclist off and on for a little over 20 years now and definitely all on for the last four. Wow I can be considered a masters rider now 😯 Thankfully, I got the blessing to buy a new bike to re-invigorate the passion and landed myself a sweet Orbea Orca in June of 2006. I previously had a 1994 Trek 5200 and was no longer happy with how flexy it had apparently become. Maybe its because I’ve gained much weight since I bought it LOL? Well true, me thinks cuz when I bought that bike I was at my low watermark of 138lbs. I stopped cycling for a few years (you know got married – had kids story) and ballooned to 185lbs. I’m down to about 162 at the moment and bottomed out last year at 156 when I was trimming down seriously for the Death Ride.

This year I really have no goals and wanted to not have the stress of having to ride for something. Well as it turns out I had to ride more to not get robbed at the gas stations 😦 So more than ever I’ve been commuting between Foster City where I work and Milpitas . Home bound to Milpitas has a stiff tailwind so I’ve been able to train for speed using a higher gear at a higher cadence. If you want top end speed, this is sweet ride for a commute!

I’ve since met a great group of Filipino cyclist in a group called the Siclistas centered mostly in the lower East Bay and Silicon Valley. If you happen to stumble on this post, check us out and join up. So speaking of the club, we just got our new kits in and they are very sweet. This is me sporting the new kit along with mi bicicleta:

Well you know sometimes you need to take a break from the monotony defined as work.   Let me show you a priceless thread I found on Cycling Forums, which promises to give you a few silenced laughters while sitting in front of your office computer.   Hopefully your neighboring office mates won’t notice your slacking with the muffled chuckles you’ll be getting.  One of my favorites were those of the chicken and of Kohl.
