Strengths:    Well made, no laces to get caught in chain, excellent protection since they are high tops. I can drive with these on, walk in stores, they are like regular sneakers but a little stiffer.

Weaknesses:    like the others said, if you were going to race they would be considered heavy. I did get some water in mine during winter use, perhaps i didn't put that little seal in correctly??

Bottom Line:   
If you can get these for a good deal and don't care about weight, grab them. I don't have a lot of experience with these products, but I do like these quite a bit.

Strengths:    Clipless shoe, good fit, can walk in them

Weaknesses:    weight i guess

Bottom Line:   
Good shoe if you get a good deal on them. They are a good way to get into XC or Am riding, they're durable as heck and would definitely do the job for DH. I haven't had any problems with them , and if you want a comfortable shoe, look at these.

Date Reviewed: August 17, 2006

Strengths:    It's actually possible to walk in them. Not like hiking very much, but you do not have to creep at least. I know bike shoes are not for walking, but on some technical rocky patches I found it very useful to have some traction if I had to do an "emergency dismount" and hold on to last shreds of balance. Saved me from falling at least a couple of times.
I have seriously wide feet and it's usually a problem to find something that fits well. Tried different shoes in shops but could never find anything to fit well.
They look very nice, too (me thinks)

Weaknesses:    The plastic thingie that holds the lace/wire - one part of it snapped right off (supposedly, in my suitcase, on a plane). So far it didn't seem to affect anything - it still holds and the little wheel that tightens the wire is not falling out by itself.

Bottom Line:   
Very, very nice shoes. Definitely high end by quality and comfort. I'd guess, too heavy to race, but quite nice for recreational/training trail rides. Being able to walk without bending knees backwards is a large plus.
Recommended (well, I got a very good deal with a friend, so look at your budget). I'm not giving the highest rates only because I lack experience with a lot of different shoes.

Most fun 29er bike with best handling and mix of plush and climbing

I have a ST FSR 29er- 2011 model. Looking for something a little (1) more nimble and (2) better climber. I also have a Yelli. Problem with the yelli and Stump jumper is on steep climbs the front wheel comes up. So something that is plush is fine, but I figure too much travel and ill have that fr ... Read More »

Fork/shock settings for more plush feel on Ripley?

Hey guys, What settings are you running to have a plush feel on your Ripleys? Right now, it feels like it ramps up quickly in the travel on bigger hits but I'm only using about 80% of the travel on the big ones. My feet are also taking a beating on extended descents (which could be unrelated to su ... Read More »

Blur LT2 Fox Float CTD not a plush as my old Heckler :- ( Advice needed....

Evening guys... Any setup tips for a Fox Float CTD on a Blur LT2? I've tried rebound 100% fast and slow, and in between, and have the air at 150psi for my weight of 80kg with gear, and it just feels a little too firm for my liking, seems to jar me around a lot more than the Heckler did on genera ...

Looking for a "plush" XC bike

I currently have a 2013 Scott Spark 910 FS bike. At first I was pretty happy with it, but as I am doing more endurance events, the ride quality is leaving me wanting something different. Dont get me wrong, it is a great "race" bike and I would have no issue racing for <40 miles or so. What ... Read More »

2013 Fox CTD 4" swapped bike, now have 5" CTD, feels to plush..

I had a 2013 Anthem X1 with 4" suspension. I swapped it out for a trance X1 with 5" cause i like jumping some and im a fat bastard at 235lb. Anyways in the C setting on the 4" it felt like a semi lock out. I liked it for climbing etc I had to bounce with some ok effort to get it to start dampe ... Read More »
