Excellent MTB lightweight boot

This is a lightweight extremely high quality MTB shoe with ankle support and good hiking ability. I've used them about 1000 miles the last six months in mostly dry or light rain desert conditions down to 45 degF. They remind me of the old lace Shimano hiking boot MTB shoe from 25 years ago which was awesome. They are very well made. I can't comment about extreme water use I'd probably use a 45 N boot for that or some other Shimano if you can find them.

Prefer the regular SH-RX801 both for half size option and ankle comfort

I wanted some stiffer SPD shoes with good toe box volume, but didn't want to spend a fortune since most of my serious rides are done with 3-bolt pedals. BTD had the SH-RX801Rs on sale for a fantastic price and I thought they were worth a try. Unfortunately, I found that the size 43s were just too big for my feet (I primarily wear 42.5, or 42 if the toe box is extra roomy, in other brands). That wouldn't have been a dealbreaker except where the ankle sleeve meets the upper put too much pressure on the top of my foot. BTD was great about handling an exchange for a pair of regular SH-RX801s in 42.5, which I've worn quite a bit on my smart bike indoors without the ankle pain.

If you generally don't have painful pressure from shoes where the upper meets the ankle, or fit in full size, then I could see the SH-RX801Rs being a great option. The single BOA is as good as many double BOA shoes at foot retention.

Shimano Dura-Ace/XTR CN-HG901 11-Speed Chain

Worth the Extra Cost Over Ultegra

Decided to try Dura-ace chain over Ultegra after reading difference between the two Shimano chains is more than just weight. Dura-ace chain uses lighter metal alloy that is less resistant to wear or "stretch." Not my words, but what I read that caused me to try spending extra coin for a Dura-ace chain. My experience was chain wear was less than experience with Ultegra chain after roughly the same time or miles. Unless you're the type of rider who itches to replace chain sooner rather than later for fear of cassette wear, get a bit more wear from your chain, I'd recommend the Dura-ace over the Ultegra despite the slightly extra cost.

Wish Shimano hadn't changed their sizing

Looking for a replacement for my SH-R170 road shoes - the best fitting, most comfortable cycling shoes I ever found. These seem to be as close as I can get. The assembly quality seems equal to the older shoe. The BOA closure is a substantial improvement lending true on bike flexibility. It's just that, somewhere along the line, Shimano decided to change the sizing of the shoe lasts. My old shoes were 43 and fit perfectly. Their new size chart said I should use a 44 for my US 9.5. They were ungainly long, so then I tried the 42.5 which is an available size in the RC 7. Still somewhat long with that unbalanced feel from too much toe space. Finally, I tried the 43. It is definitely trimmer than my old shoes which I am able to use with a supplemental insole (just a Dr. Scholl's). The RC 7 still has a nice smooth foot bed with little contour to suit my low arch feet well. The toe box is rounder which is the main quality allowing this size to fit. The trimness of the shoe will be more stable on the pedal. There's no room for a supplemental insole and I'm hoping the shoe will soften as I ride. I like the color and styling and the sole is stiff and very well made with good gradations for cleat alignment. It would be nice to do a follow up after a year of riding, but...

These shoes are really nice. They did not have that magical good out of the box fit of the R170s, but have a lot of promise.
