    new boots


    I just got a new Prexport speed boots and I couldn't drive with it. It fits fine but I can't shift because it wouldn't do tiptoe so I can't stick my toe under the shift lever, not easily as I had anticipate. Is there special way of shifting with these boots? or do I have to get them flex enough? Could it be I need new bike?

    Your going to need to break in the new boots. It takes a little getting use to. I had the same problem when I wore my Alpinestar SMX plus boots. I had a few mis shifts in the begining until I got accustom to them.

    Same here, took a couple of long rides to get used to my Teknics. Felt like they wouldn't fit under the lever even though they're slimmer then my sneaks

    It's almost impossible to shift.

    I think the problem is my gear lever. It might be low. I hope it's adjustable. Could figure it out yet.

    They are very much adjustable, a little turn makes all the differance in the world.
