Cool? I really don't know what to say about this. Does anyone know that this exists? I mean, I found it on bike rumor. Is this being posted on car blogs or just bike blogs? It's been viewed less then 2000 times, so I'm assuming this hasn't really been promoted. I guess it's up to us. Time strike the match.
New Shoes are out! The Tobruck slip on! I finally got my "Turds for Gold" and if the Tobruck is anything like the Midway for riding, everyone is gonna be very impressed. I'll be writing a review of the Midway's soon enough, got more then a couple races coming up, which will put then to the test, so look out for that. Before that, sometime this week Joe will review the Kursk, for you guys. Back to the Tobruck, here's the deets from the press release from Chrome.
After countless requests to build a classic slip-on shoe that will hold up on the bike, Chrome is proud to announce the newest addition to their footwear line, the Tobruk.
The Tobruk is filled with details that make riding in them easier and the shoe, itself, tougher. Those features include:
· Low profile design to better fit into a toe cage
· 100% vulcanized construction
· Weatherproof 1,000 denier Cordura with back-padding
· Re-enforced nylon/glass fiber shank to support the midsole
· Board lasted sole to eliminate pedal hot spot
· Skid resistant contact rubber on the sole
· Polyurethane contoured crash pad insole
· Durable rubber heel cup with reflective safety hit
· Center gore slip-on design

Floyd Landis, the American cyclist whose 2006 Tour de France victory was nullified after a positive doping test, has sent a series of emails to cycling officials and sponsors admitting to, and detailing, his systematic use of performance enhancing drugs during his career. The emails also claim that other riders and cycling officials allegedly participated in doping, including seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong.
