    i really enjoy the ride. can´t get enough of it atm. i also like the color and overall look.

    hoping to do this trail soon (maybe next weekend):

    looks sooo good imo (not really tricky, but reaaaally flowy).

    right now i´´m contemplating about pedals (platform vs. clipless). right now i ride clipless, but sometimes i´d prefer good platforms...)

    yeah, those are the typical downhill shoes.
    i need shoes, that have a better ankle support and the soles need to provide grip when hiking.

    i´m using these shoes right now (together with shimano spd pedals):

    ugly but good shit for sure, I ride these with shimano dx platform pedals and you really have to lift your feet to get them repositioned on the pedal!...

    I think they'll do fine when walking in them too atzec, if you want more ankle support, get the high version ;-)

    Since I started mountainbiking I got to know a few dutch guys in Malmedy, anyhow, this is one of their video's, figured I would post it since it's shot with the same type of cam Pasko has just bought.

    ^ watch out for trees! :lol::lol:

    it sucks that trails in europe are for hikers and bikers. it's dangerous imo.

    nice trails indeed, tho I must admit I'm not quite as fast as these guys and some of the harder parts forced me off the bike...

    as for trails being for bikers and hikers, some trails aren't really meant for bikers but they get used anyhow...

    so i just ordered a five ten "sam hill", imo they´re not as ugly as the regular impact...

    from what i´ve read, five tens really seem to be the best shoes around...
