Just got delivery of my new (purchased off ebay) oxtar boots today. They look great, are pretty much brand new safe a few tiny scuffs here and there and the fit is nice. I shelled out $365.00 (including postage) for these beauties which I think was a pretty decent price. Here is a link to them on bike biz. http://bikebiz.com.au/enter.html?lang=en-us&target=p2406.html&lmd=38988.684329 One problem I came across in the first 10 seconds of wearing them is that they are very noisy! They have a TCS Torsion Control System (flexible system of interlocking armour pieces on the side and back of the ankle) and when I take a step the armour slides about in its designed matter but makes a lot of noise in the process. Anything I can do about this? I intend on wearing them a fair bit to uni and around the place but I'd like it if I didn't sound like a airplane landing gear. Bit of WD40 or silicone spray? I was thinking maybe some of that graphite goo could also do the trick.
