April 8, 2023

As we prepare for our Stages bike upgrade this spring, we want you to know we’re here to help you make the transition from sneakers to spin shoes a smooth one! Each new bike will be compatible with SPD AND DELTA clips (but not sneakers), allowing for a safer, more efficient ride for you, and less wear and tear on the bikes all around.

Why are we requiring spin shoes for all Rev cycling classes with the bike upgrade?

1. You’ll get a more efficient pedal stroke transferring more power to the bike, engaging more muscle groups than just your quads – like hammies, calves, glutes and core.

2. Stability and safety. Properly fitted cycle shoes help prevent injury and keep your feet, ankles and body in a more properly aligned position. Even if you’re just riding 2x per week, that’s potentially up to 30 or 40 miles … it adds up!

3. Decreased wear and tear on the bike. (This one benefits us too!) By wearing cycle shoes that essentially won’t touch the elements outside of the studio, you help contribute to increasing the longevity of our pedals and bikes by decreasing their use by wet, dirty street shoes, thus ensuring your “favorite bike” is around for the long haul.

Email us at info@revolutionbuffalo.com to see if we have your size and preferred color/pattern in stock. OR stop by the studio during class hours and try a pair on for size. We’ve got TIEM and Garneau in stock – and are offering 25% off any shoe you purchase in-studio  or on order through us! We’ll also have spin shoes available for rent in most sizes, if that’s a better option for you.
