Strengths:    -Comfortable
-Pretty Breathable
-Fairly Lightweight
-True to size
-Good stiff sole for transferring power

Weaknesses:    -only one color choice
-Be nice if it had 3 straps instead of 2, but they get pretty tight

Bottom Line:   
These are the first pair of shoes that I bought that clip in. I am impressed with them. They work really well with the Crankbrothers Eggbeaters that I also bought from Nashbar. I have used them for about 8 months now mountain biking most weekends, and so far they seem pretty durable and strong. They don't feel like they are flexible or flimsy. The sole is strong and I do not notice a pressure point at all with the eggbeaters as some people talk about.

I am not really a weight nazi when it comes to something like shoes, and am not sure how they compare in weight to other brands, but to me they seem fairly light. I would imagine they're not even close to the weight of carbon ones, but I could care less when they cost like $200+

I normally wear 11.5's in regular shoes, so I was a little worried they would be a little on the small side since I ordered 45's, but they actually fit me perfectly. Not too tight, not too loose.

I also think they look good, and I especially like that they match both my MTB and my road bike colors. The only improvement I can think of is that Nashbar could make is that they could offer the shoes in more colors and maybe add a 3rd strap. Oh, and maybe narrow the leather tongue a little.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the quality of them, especially at such a great price.

Conti Mountain King II Race Sport discontinued?

At least that's what my LBS said when trying to order one. So I got the Protection. Also and more importantly, which should I have up front. The RaceSport (which is currently up front) w/ a 180 TPI or the Protection version w/ a TPI of 240? Both are 2.4" and I assume the treads will be the same.Read More »

I just bought this Topeak Joe Blow Sport II. How do I use it?

This is really making me bad. Stupid bike pump will not work. I tried to put it on and all it would do is leak air. It would not lock on. This thing is complete garbage. How do I use it? Yes, I was using the right side. Thanks.Read More »
