After back to Japan, I purchased some goods for biking and life.
One is shoes for usual use.
It is Soucany "Outlaw" shoes.
Soucany released many colorful running shoes, however this Outlow is Black color!! They said, Outlaw is for XC running looks heavy-duty!!
It is very light weight!! And good fit for my feet.
So, my Euro size is 42.5.
Sole stiffness is very good tuned I think. I purchased from UK, price is about 6500JPY, but in Japan shop is 13000JPY!! Twice!!
Another is head light for my bicycle.
Usually I ride to bike in early morning on 5:00 or 5:30. Summer season is already after sunrise, not necessary head light, however now sunrise time is over 6:00, middle winter is 6:50!! I have to equip head light and switch on!! For safety.
My choice is Cateye HL-EL540RC
Supplier URL is;
I think it has best performance in LED light products.
With my bike (fixedgearbike)
It is very good light!!
If ride in no light road, I can see road condition well!!
Battery is 4X AA size(rechargeable)
On time is about 5hours. It is suitable for my usual use. If I ride in dark longtime, I have more 4 AA batteries.
This light is so big and heavy, but it's safe!!
