I did a ten day tour around Florida and the only food I ate was trail mix,nutrigrain bars and 2 footlongs from Subway a day. I am planning a 2500 mile ride in 9 months and will stick to that, maybe mix it up here and there with some of the suggestions above.
QuoteIt can't apply as much torque as a real pedal wrench, but there's no need to get pedals very tight since precession keeps them from loosening as you ride.Despite the thread arrangement I have had pedals loosen up. A nice thing about the 8mm hex hole is that you can use a torque wrench instead of an allen wrench (at home). Shimano specifies a torque of 35-55N-m (26-41ft-lbs), which I consider to be fairly tight.
How's the difference in scratch resistance? I was concerned that all the salt from my abundant sweat drying on the glasses would scratch the lenses when I clean them. I've always gotten real glass until the ones I got a couple of weeks ago, because I keep my glasses for ten years or more. I still have virtually the same prescription I got 23 years ago (only 1/4 diopter different, which is the minimum).
BTW, I find plastic (polycarbonate) is more difficult to get smear-free when cleaning than glass is.
unless you know why you might want the additional impact/shatter resistance.
By the way, in case I decide to cut the stays myself, any suggestions on exactly how to do this or what tools to use?
