    I tried my brand new Endura Road overshoes this morning and made a right mess of them.

    Because of the large amount of float my peddles (just for bonj) give it was possible for the sides of the shoes to rub against the chain stays. Result is one nice hole and one nearly worn thorugh patch on the inside of each overshoe.

    If you have float on your pedals then check that the extra thickness of material doesn't allow you to rub it away on a ride. If you can rotate the cleat out a bit more so the stop on the pedal comes into force before you start scrape away the cloth. Pedals are Speedplay Frogs.

    Bugger! Bugger! Bugger!!

    well surely you must have been able to feel it rubbing, so why didn't you stop it?

    I bought a pair last year and they lasted a week before they began falling to pieces. :biggrin:

    Yes, I didn't have a good experience with them either. Pity really, all my other Endura kit is excellent.

    I had a pair, then realised they looked kinda gimpy. Now I only wear them with my all-rubber suit.

    the zips have both gone on mine, but as they were used daily throughout last winter i'm not complaining.

    Well, it's just the 'bash on regardless' spirit which made the Great British Great, however in your case that's Grate.

    I can safely say I didn't, and if I did I would have done but as it was I didn't so I didn't. OK?

    Oh yes, stop calling me Shirley!
