    The Birth of Holy FiveFingers

    Steel Punch Necessary Holy Object Creator

    Howdy Folks

    Okay, I got a little out-of-control and put some holes (35 to be exact) in a pair of FFs using a steel punch.

    I am doing some testing today in a desperate attempt to create a FF that can go 100 miles in heat without getting too moist.

    Already, I can say that the HOLY FF is a lot cooler just wearing indoors. Later today I will give it a good test run: one FF holy (right foot), one not (left foot).

    I think I might be on to something here.

    Holy #$@%!

    Okay, I took my holy FFs out for a tough 12 mile test run yesterday. Lots of steep trail, lots of elevation gain and loss, some single-track and sandy areas. The holy FFs performed well.

    I added more holes (as you can see). I think that if the holes were bigger on the inside and narrowed, cone-like, to the outside, even less dust would enter, but as they are, not much got in compared with the non-holed FF.

    One very cool thing about the holy FF was the feel. The holes added just a little stretchiness. The stretchiness really felt nice when braking and on tight turns. Really would like to explore this more.

    Sure, I got out of control...and it was fun...
