Thank you so much for your speedy response, and also the fast shipping - you put my mind at ease, and the shoes arrived on my doorstep at 6pm this evening. I really appreciate your great customer service, and I'm looking forward to seeing the look on his face when he opens them!
Thanks Eric! 10/10 would recommend :)
Great customer service just like Zach Gallardo said in his YouTube videos! You guys should sponsor him or something and you should get a raise
“Summer’s here and the time is right for dancing in your cleats!” After riding around the parking lot at the Dead & Company show in Chula Vista last week, my friend forgot to change his shoes before going in to the show. They held up quite nicely while dancing to what was the best show of the week!
Awesome! Thanks! I've heard great things about your shoes and can't wait to get em cleated and go for a ride.
I bought the Terra Forest LTD shoes and received them today! They look fabulous and feel great.... Very comfortable walking around in them. I'm headed out for a 3 day 2 night ride and camping along the trail and looking forward to using them. I'm going to buy another pair in a different color!
Thanks so much.
A small remote town in Tasmania is building a mountain biking Eldorado with a stunning network of purpose-built flow trails.
That's great. Thank you Eric! I do love the shoes and have turned DZR on to friends of mine. Certainly seemed like a defect as my last pair held up much longer and these are ripping out right along the seam.
I appreciate the great customer service and standing behind your product.
Thank you again for all your help. I just wanted to update you that I just got a pair of DZR Cove shoes at my local bike shop. Although ordering online didn't work out, your kindness and the overall mission of your brand kept me interested, and I couldn't be happier with these shoes. It was also great to support a local shop that carries your brand. I included a photo as well. I am not even sure that you care to hear about this, but I wanted you to know your team's efforts really did keep a customer loyal and that loyalty will continue.
It was really cool to get these three guys - Cam McCaul, Tyler McCaul and Brett Rheeder together for this video shoot last year. With these guys riding together there is never a dull moment.

I was a tad late after realizing, once in my garage, I had to switch pedals out from my polo bike to my Trek since it was dry and most of the salt was gone to rock the DZR Marcos (with custom green board paint splatter). I was gonna need all the gears I could get fighting this Nor’easter. I met Christian for the first time, the photographer for this, outside Blackbird for the (mis)adventure we were embarking on. We had a goal of reaching 10 bars. I’ll be honest we only made it to 8. I could have added a few more bars to this report that people who ride bikes frequent and that incentivize showing up by bike. Don’t get me wrong, more bars could be more bike friendly, as the city itself could. Overall though each year I see more riders I don’t know in the streets and more support from bar owners to cater to those who choose to ride there. These are my personal highly rated ones. Have one to suggest or disagree with me? Go to your favorite bike friendly bar, buy a drink and let them know you rode and appreciate their support. Or politely suggest to them how to improve. From out of town? This is a good guide to get you started.
The 5 borough bike tour is an annual 40 miles closed course ride throughout New York city attended by upwards of 40,000 riders. In conjunction with the ride Bike New York holds their annual Bike Expo. The expo is where all registered riders must show up to grab their registration packet. 60,000+ attendees and over 100 brands was enough for us to pack our bags and get on a flight to New York City.
The event was great! We met a lot of people from all over. Thanks to everyone who came by the booth.
Check out this awesome article written about DZR rider Tyler McCaul on Pinkbike.
Being Cam McCaul’s younger brother wasn’t always easy for Tyler McCaul, “I used to get heckled by kids daily saying that the only reason I had sponsors was because I had a 'famous' brother.”
DZR Attending Bike Expo New York
Friday April 29th and Saturday April 30th.
Join us at “America’s most-attended consumer bike expo.”
When people think of Minneapolis it's usually about our weather. Not about how perfect we have it in the spring, summer and fall, but about the brutal cold we endure anywhere from 4-6 months of the year. Even with that we still manage to get on with our normal lives. We're constantly in a battle for Best Cycling City in the country with Portland and Austin, and with all that cycling comes drinking. When the weather is nice we like to grab a 6-pack and go down to the nearest lake or park and enjoy the warmth, but when the cold comes back we head indoors for some brews. Here are some of the places we like to ride to the most.
Oh, you was all reading up on this site and thought our expertise only went as far as dope shoes? Wrong. We also know a lot about drinking. There's a slew of rad spots all over the Bay and we've been to every single one (that we can remember!). Still, our favorite spots are the ones we hit up over and over after a gravy shift, an alleycat, or a night of hard-fought polo matches. Most of all, these are the places where we know we're going to run into friends both old and new. Here are a few of our all-time favorite watering holes to hitch our horses up at. Next time you find yourself in town, refer to this if you're looking to link up with our kind.
At some point in your bike-riding life, you’ll be climbing a steep hill, or hopping over a pothole, or hitting the road with a faster crew, thinking to yourself, “What is it I’m doing wrong? Why can’t I keep up?”
85% of it is your legs. Ride more, push harder, challenge yourself. You’ll get faster, more skillful. For that last 15% though, your equipment has to be up to snuff. And 10% of that equipment is going to be your pedals. Are they clipless? If not, that right there is going to be the extra ‘umph’ you need to beast over that hill, hop over that obstacle, and keep up with your friends and rivals. If you don’t believe me, try it! My hand to god, if you get back and tell me I’m wrong, I’ll eat my shoes.
Benefits to Commuting on Clipless Pedals
Amplified Efficiency and Power Transfer - Flat pedals are far and away the least efficient method of commuter cycling. With flat pedals, there is only one section of the pedal rotation in which you are able to apply pressure to the drivetrain: the down stroke. This uses the same leg muscle over and over causing the muscle, and you as the rider to fatigue more quickly. I know this may come across as some fixie nonsense, but the best part of clipless riding is the firm connection that the rider gains with their bicycle’s drive train.
