    The first generation of the Tour series (with toe rollers) was notoriously shitty, the toe piece plastic deforms and slowly rotates forward due to forward pressure from the heel. The later versions...

    Do those have the toe wing rollers?

    If not, I live dangerously, send them to me for proper disposal, I'll pay postage and some beer money.

    Is there even a Z12 specific heel? Aren't all those heels just plain STH?

    ^ Forgot that I do have 1/4" of Bontex shim under the liners in my 26.5 Cochise, so that does reduce the volume a fair amount while retaining length for toes. Haven't needed to shim the Tour Pro.

    So who will be the first to shim the heel, remove the brake, max out the horizontal release, and run it with a Vipec toe?

    Having to shim the heel does negate some of the weight savings though.

    Don't know how you guys with feet over 26cm are getting into the 25.5. I'm 260mm and lost toe nails in the 25.5 2016 Cochise, and upsized to the 26.5 for 2017 Cochise and Tour Pro.
