    can't see why not, it's not like you're selling used underwear is it?

    I wouldn't, but I don't need to. See lots get sold though, so have a go.

    OK. I guess Fleabay's the best place for exposure, eh?

    These are roadie shoes and I no longer have a roadie bike to use them on.

    Are they expensive ones?

    Without going and looking I think they're Genius 4s. They are silver and have a ratchety thing on for fastening. They were about 90 quid or so when I bought them, but that was maybe '03, so not worth much now probably?

    Looked for a pic before posting and this looks close.

    Got a vintage pair stuck somewhere, too, prolly in the garage. A pair of original Time road shoes a-la Greg Lemond 1989 tour. I bet no-one has the pedals to suit them anymore!
     
  8. What size are they? I'm not proud, I'll buy secondhand anything.

    Again, without going to look (wifey is in bed), I'd guess 43 euro size, which is about 8½.
     
  10. Too small. Oh well, thanks anyway.:evil:

    Never mind. Would've been cool to sell them before they were even advertised though!

    I did sneak up and get one to have a look at and they're in very good nick. Even the insoles are unmarked and only the outsole(?) shows signs that they've been worn.

    Hi,

    May well still be able to sell them without the added hastle!!!

    What price would you consider?

    Nice shoes, in my size too. Doddy has first dibs on them, but if he doesn't want them, PM me!

    Ooh, customers! :wacko:

    Sorry, didn't look at this thread yesterday. I've really no idea on a price, but I think I should be honest and inform you that there's an identical pair on ebay for 99p at the moment. It might be better to bid on those first and maybe get a bargain?
