Review: Look X-Track En-Rage Plus Pedal
M8020 MSRP is $120. Wait and see what the Looks actually go for in sales. Also the non "Plus" version of the Looks are more directly comparable with the M8020s. Those weigh 6g more per pedal compared to the M8020s have a 40% lower MSRP than the Plus version so might end up selling for less than the Shimanos.

Review: Look X-Track En-Rage Plus Pedal
No mention of whether or not the wider contact "platform" feels any different or offers any advantage over Shimano Trail pedals, just the fact that "Look claims [that the contact platform] better supports the rider and makes for more efficient pedaling and control". Hmm. I still might consider these or small Nukeproof Horizons when my current XTs' mechanism gets sloppy (probably another 2 years) if the price isn't much more than XTs at the time.

Winning Bike Check: Richie Rude's Yeti SB5.5 - EWS Olargues, France 2018
Somewhere between 65.5-66 degrees @Mtb4joe. 20-25mm extra height under the headtube changes the head angle by 1 degree. Too many variables to put an exact number on it.

Tech Talks: Bedding in Brakes 101, Presented by Park Tool - Video
@Thustlewhumber: I use a Reverb syringe without the plunger part instead of the Shimano funnel. Did the mini bleed last night in under 10 minutes and brakes felt excellent today. @mtrogers-trailrun: Yeah I check the piston position when I change pads. Clean them up with isopropyl and if they're uneven pump them in and out individually to free them up. If that doesn't work a little Castrol red rubber grease on any sticky pistons.

Just top them up every 4-5 rides when the pads wear and the lever throw gets longer (see an old Pinkbike post called something like "5 minute bubble bleed" or a similar post by Epic Bleed Solutions). Swap the freestroke screw to a hex grub screw and do this with it backed out (yes, the screw does serve a purpose) then snug it back in carefully (stop when you first feel resistance or you'll snap something inside). I've used Zees since 2014 following this procedure, bleed them once per year just to flush out dirty oil and never have issues with the bite point. Also I've found the Zees' lever has less throw and a firmer feel if the reach is further out, even though the reach isn't meant to affect the bite. I used to run them close to the grips because I found it comfier but got used to the reach in that position pretty quickly, was worth it.
