I'm usually a 39, and they don't make them that small, so need to see if a 40 is too big...
They are long narrow boots - apparently the euro shaped foot - if your foot is broader, then you'd probably need to go up a size anyway ...

There's also a few variants of Crossfires, but you've probably noticed that - the older style are dirt cheap from the German sites ...

Yeah, I didn't realise that because the brand isn't listed on their online shop. But I called anyway & they're happy to get me a pair in to try on, no obligation.

I'm always "interested" in a ride, but I'm in the throes of house-moving, so that is taking priority for a short while.
A good loop I did years ago was Canberra-Bombala-Mckillops Bridge-Omeo-Dargo on day one, then back to Canberra via Bright, Tallangata, Corryong, Adaminaby, we did it on an Australia day weekend, a damn fine ride.

An alternative is to make a tube spanner out of a bit of appropriate diameter pipe by crushing the sides against the nut in a vice.
