Here’s a little non-tech respite before we get back to the full-on tech-fest of Interbike. It’s time to look at some socks, shoes and locks… All presented a little differently.
That looks like an 'SPD leisure' shoe to us
Keen's SPD shoe. Rubber bumpertastic
The Knog booth had several clever dioramas. Here's 2001 played out with its new shackle lock.
Zombie gravestone padlocks
And an Alien chestburster with Knog light for a fanged mouth.
Returning to normal, oh, maybe not... here's a Pirate of the Sock Guy.
Just one corner of the huge gathering of the bicycle world at Interbike
Another sock-monkey from Sock Guy. They don't make them, but patterns are available if you want to get your great-aunt Doris to make you one out of some old socks.
Sock Guy makes something like 350 stock sock designs, plus custom ones (like our very own Singletrack socks)
Tall socks are very in this year apparently.
And stripes? Stripes are in.

Knog lights would be better if they concentrated on making the darn things waterproof instead of fancy displays at trade shows! Got another rear light to return today. Bah!

completely agree with sanny – knog lights are a great idea poorly executed. make the buggers waterproof and you’ve got a great light. if it’s not waterproof i’ll plump for the less appealing (but functional) cateye.

I’ve found the Knogs to be more waterproof than rear Cateyes.

It’s dark. No-one can see what they look like anyway.

Tall socks? That’ll be a half-hose, sir.

Is that someone hanging their c**k in the knog booth?

I don’t think so, but I didn’t shoot the X-rated exhibit at the Knog booth which showed Barbie, er ‘doing’ Ken…

[i]Keen – still the only (current) SPD sandals to have.[/i]
The Shimano ones don’t count?

For some reason I’m strangly drawn to the lightning bolt motiff socks……………
