I've been looking at SIDI's for about a year (something always seems to be needed first - now it's tires). For the money I prefer the Strada Evo or the Vertebra II to the B-One.

The Strada Evo is fully waterproof and only costs $20 more. The Vert. II has a lot more crash protection than the B-One for about $40 more. If you are going with the Power Ranger look you might as well go all the way.

I wear Vertabra II, in all black. They squeak like he11! But they're comfortable, and crash worthy, so I'll deal with the pack of little mice that follow me around when I wear them... Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! Squeak!

My Verts were sqeaky too. So, I rubbed just a tiny bit of mink oil where the plastic plates overlap. Totally eliminated the noise. Now I can sneak around ninja style in my Sidis. :)

I've got the Vert II's as well...I love them, they broke in really fast, Sidi makes good stuff, I've got three pairs of their cycling shoes.

I'm waiting on a pair of Sidi Strada Tepors in the mail; found them online for $200.00 with free shipping...

Can you clue me in? I haven't been able to find them below $225 with free shipping.

Thanks scooby. Looks like a good deal.
If you had a choice, what would it be?
B-One
Vertebra-2
Strada

I'd give up some "espresso bar dress-style" for added protection - meaning the Vert. would probably fit the bill best?
These will be my first boots, so I'm a little green. After 5-6 years of riding in Doc Martens, maybe it's time to get some real protection going.

The things I like about the b-one are the replaceable protector on the outside of the forefoot. I scrape my nike's now when I'm riding fairly aggresively. Also, dealer had one pair of the grey/black's (no too racerboy looking) in my size and has them on hold for me for $182 including tax.

i've currently got a pair of stradas and have some vert 2 airs on the way. the stradas are nice when you have to walk around a bit and don't look too bad with jeans at work. they don't offer the same level of protection as the vertabras, though.

It's a done deal guys. I just ordered Vert. 2's from my local shop and got them for $205! :eek:
They should be here in a week. I can't wait. Goodie goodie :p
Thanks again,
T.

Keith,
Don't underestimate Valley. Consistently, I get better deals through them than I do through online stores. Tell them your "new bike" discount is still active. Heck, it's been a year for me and still milk that "discount" ;)
