Review: Giro Riddance Mid Shoes
@jaame: Yeah what you saw was possibly one of a few things. 1. Third Shift Goods (google it if you don't know what it is) 2. A factory offloading legit goods onto the grey market when the purchase order was way lower than was promised or reneged on. 3. Straight counterfeits. Your $100 shoe probably cost somewhere in the teens to make and account for duty. I don't work for Giro, and have only ever had coworkers who were ever direct competitors to Giro, I do though work for a company that makes highly technical and casual shoes in China, Vietnam, and Europe. You trying to shit on $130 dollar shoe that is only slightly more expensive than your Levi example is so missinformed. That $100 Levi's shoe probably had a higher margin, less stringent QC and environmental standards, and way less tech, than what Giro deals in. Even just having the Vibram on there means they have to live up to a certain standard of quality for the entire shoe.

Review: Giro Riddance Mid Shoes
@jzPV: LOLOLOLOL, C4 is way softer than Megagrip. Seen the actual testing numbers on that. That's actually one of the reasons C4 is "stickier" than Megagrip. Megagrip overall is a pretty good compound (not as "sticky" as stealth C4, probably about the same/ slightly better than S1). I'd guess a lot of the traction issues with the sole is the lug depth/ design paired with a stiff midsole. Example: I've ridden protos of DZR's Sense that had a MUCH deeper lug design than the final design. The difference was pretty pronounced from final design. Side to side the proto felt almost like a clipless (laterally) since the lugs really surrounded and captured the pins (like the old Nike 6.0 soles, RIP). Versus the final that had a good balance of good lateral traction and being able to still pivot your foot. The second half of that is having a stiffer midsole that doesn't allow the outsole to conform around the pins as much. Just like how a high pressure tire is rougher and has less traction than a low pressure tire.

Tech Randoms: New Racks, Bars, Shades, & Shoes - Crankworx Whistler 2018
Whatever old man. Mavic Deemax's back in the day had 28..and straight pull spokes. I also rode a 28 hole alum wheel for about a year with a missing spoke, eventually replaced it and got it back to true.
