If you have been following my blog for awhile you know I've made a few changes this spring...one of which is a change to riding iSSi Triples I’ve been a Shimano XT fan for the longest time, however when I saw all these
amazing colors & the weight (316g/pair!) of these pedals my jaw dropped! I couldn’t resist….these pedals are
absolutely beautiful and I want ALL of them!! All the pedals!!
Dirty Kanza 200 was an event like none I’ve ever experienced
before.The muddy conditions not only
made for a brutally satisfying race…but they also wrecked extreme havoc on just
about every component of my bike.To
this day it still shocks me that I actually rode my broken bike across the
finish line, and as we tally up the damages and necessary repairs ….I’m in
utter amazement of the performance & perseverance of one key component of
my bike that day… my kick ass iSSi Triple Pedals!
Not only did they survive the Dirtiest of Dirty Kanza’s
unscathed, but these sexy lime green pedals performed in muddy conditions at a level
that blew my freaking mind!Over the
course of the race we had to hike our bikes for a combined 3 miles through clay
like mud that was so thick it stuck to our shoes like glue! At one point it
seriously appeared as though I was wearing big fluffy bear slippers.It was hilarious….and super easy to laugh
through all the dorkiness and suffering because every time I hopped on my bike
to ride it… I clipped in with ease. Giddy up!I recall passing racers pulled over removing mud from their cleats and the
post-race photos confirm the difficulty many people had getting clipped back
into their pedals.
iSSi pedals sealed
the deal for me in that day in Emporia and I’m stoked to be riding them on all
my bikes…..I mean how can you resist HI VIS YELLOW...and REALLY RED??!!!!
