I don't think it was completely the shoes fault, I may have gone up a couple of hills on the single speed that should no be single sped up,
Causing me to pull up and push down on said pedals

Hopefully I’m safe, I do have a drop bar bike, however it’s a Fargo so very far from being a trendy gravel bike.
Not a chance, it's the granddaddy of them all! :lol:

The Kona Sutra predates the Fargo by 4-5 years.

True, I was thinking more of the description of "fashionable gravel bikes" as opposed to just a gravel capable bike.

Aye - the Sutra never ever got the "fashionable" label. Shame really as it was so far ahead of its time.

I might be searching for the impossible, but here goes...

3 bolt (roadie) shoes for use on the UP. Have been using XC pedals and shoes until now, but will also use this bike for long road rides, Audax, etc, with Look Keo style pedals (Favero power sensors to be precise). So after a compatible shoe that is all day comfortable and a bit easier to walk in than the usual carbon disco slippers.

Does such a solution exist?

Surely outdoor, adventurous-types would sport an "Action Man-bun"? :ugeek: :wink:
