Submitted by Ben Sokolski a Weekend Warrior from leadville, CO, USA

Date Reviewed: January 10, 2007

Strengths:    Solid and durable for downhill and mountaincross

Weaknesses:    the open cleat mounting might be a small weakness if you never use clip in pedals, but sealant takes care of that.

Bottom Line:   
THe open cleat brings the mounting holes closer to the pedal so the cleat will work with platform type clip ins.

Date Reviewed: December 16, 2006

Strengths:    Excellent design, aesthetics, high quality materials and construction. Very comforatble, but stiff enough for efficient pedaling. Look like street shoes, so you don't feel ghey wearing them to the deli to grab and after-ride bite.

Weaknesses:    A bit heavy, not for racing or endurance.

Bottom Line:   
A bit pricey, but still a good shoe (you get what you pay for). Very durable - should last a long time. A great all mtn, FR, or DH shoe. A bit heavy and inefficent for racing. However, they are great for everything else. Highly recommend.

Nipple size vs. spoke wrench - the Super B round one.

Greetings, Just rounded off two nipples truing the front wheel & decided it was time to get a better spoke wrench.

BB tool and torque wrench

I bought a new Truvativ Aka 2.1 crankset with GXP BB. I have a old Shimano ISIS tool in my toolbox which can work. However, there is no provision to put a ratchet wrench on the tool, only a 32mm spanner. I heard it's important to tighten the BB with the right torque amount and I have a 3/8" torque ...

Shimano XT Shadow+ . . . no wrench included?

Hey so I've been on my XT Shadow plus for ~100 miles now and the clutch started getting a little loose, which I've read is normal. Took the cover off, expecting to find a little wrench in there like on the XTR line . . . nada. Is this normal?Read More »
