Great Shoes

Rating:

The Good: They are comfortable, but not just comfortable, really comfortable. Easy to walk in. Easy to clip in and out.

The Bad: Can't think of anything!

Overall: I love these shoes, picked them up for around $25 on JensonUSA. I ride them on flats and on clipless down hill pedals and they work great on both. Get'em you will not be sorry.

Whole lot of bike, not a whole lot of money!

Rating:

The Good: This is a 6" travel bike for under $700. It is speced, for the most part, with decent componets, it is a blast to ride. It comes with a SRAM X-7 rear derailluer and X-5 shifters, Tektro Novela Sprot disk brakes with 208mm rotor, thats right 208mm of stopping power, the wheel set is tough as nails and the Kenda Kinetics tires stick like glue. Nice bash guard to save your chain rings.

The Bad: The FSA crankset sucks, it has the power drive bottom bracket, it is FSA's bottom of the line. My bottom bracket lasted only two months, but it was replaced with a more capable FSA bottom bracket and have had no problems since. The only other think that people may worry about is the weight, this bike is heavy, but I personaly don't have an issue with this.

Overall: Bottom line that this is one sick ride for very little money. I ride every thing from xc to full on down hill on this bike and it has serve me well. The frame is burly, but heavy. The bike loves all types of gravity riding, it flies down hill and is stable in the air, but you can still climb. All in all I love this bike.
