Based on advice I got here and from Cycleforms, I got a pair of Frey Daytona Urban boots. http://www.helimot.com/catalog/boots/boots_urban_data.shtml I ordered them in April and received them in August. No biggie, I am between bikes anyway. The instruction manual recommends treatment with FD's special boot care liquid. Unfortunately, as FD is a German outfit they only have one US dealer (that I know of), which is helimot.com. Helimot does not carry the FD boot care liquid. I realize it's best to stick with the manufacturer's recommendations but in this case it does not seem like I can get the recommended stuff. Recommendations as to alternate (i.e. available in the USA) boot care solutions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
