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.

Submitted by Yuri Makassiouk a Cross Country Rider from Ålesund

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.

Ripley - plush enough?

Close to pulling the trigger on a Ripley, but recently took a ride on a Niner RIP9 and was truly impressed by the linear, plush suspension feel on that bike. Curious if folks have any feedback on the Ripley DW vs the RIP9 CVA. Local riding is really rugged, and I'd build the Ripley with the Fox 34 ... Read More »

2013 Superfly 100 AL - SoCal trails and scoliosis, can it be plush enough?

Greetings Demoed 2013 Superfly 100 AL yesterday, sag was at 25%. Been out of the saddle for over 10 years, was on a HTbefore, never been on a 29er before either. Wow, did it feel great, just seemed to fit. I read about 29er's being slow to get going or having slow handling, that was not my impre ... Read More »

Looking for a 29er fork as plush as my Pushed Fox Vanilla

Just like the title says, I have a couple of 29ers with Reba forks which work well enough but when I feel the old Pushed Vanilla there is NO comparison. I checked out the Reba conversions but I don't want to go that route unless it's going to get me in the neighborhood of this fork. Suggestions?Read More »

HiFi Deluxe more plush

Is there anyway to make this bike a little more plush? It absorbs the big bumps but not the little chatter if that make's sense.Read More »

can i make fork more supple and plush by putting lighter oil ?

I've fox 34 talas CTD 160mm Fork works fine, but it's not as supple as i want (comparing to Lyrik R) i don't know why, maybe because some compression damping that this fork has (even on descent setting) can i put lighter oil to reduce compression damping ? Is it safe for internals? :) What's ... Read More »
