Well, I got my SIDI Toasters back, and although Hottalk (see inset) threw his flies in the ointment, it all worked out -
Yesterday I spent 6hrs in them with a temp starting at 37 and ending up a balmy 50 degrees-
The new Toasters were charged and operated perfectly. The ride was cold but not brutal and I'm...... OK with them. Yep, just OK - they did work, but at hr 4 my right foot got numb from the "ball" forward. It was about 45 at that point. Now, before I get spammed from all my relatives in Italy saying its the shoes, keep in mind these are the same shoes, bike, seat etc... I rode all thru the summer and into the winter. So I don't know what else to report - Veltec was great about swapping them out, and I REALLY wish I could report something more positive. Maybe I have colder feet than the next guy, but isn't that really who these things are marketed to?
For me, I just wish they would turn up the heat or better yet, just make them user regulated?
