Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
@mpcremata: the most ironic thing is that they demo’ed it on the very bike that don’t need it since its suspension is allready locked by 150% antisquat at sag (32/50) and 25deg+ pedal kickback for the same gear combination... Bikes with less AS/PK (i.e. Suspension Working with less transmission interactions) will benefit far more from this technology.

Burning Question: Is Super Boost 157 Spacing Going to Become the New Standard?
"We aren’t in the frame business, so we can’t speak much to what is best for frame design or if it will really start to take off. We leave that to all the bike manufactures/frame-experts as they know what is best for their brand and suspension designs." So what's your f..... job Duncan ?????

The New Five Ten x Adidas Shoes Explained - Eurobike 2018
@ianwish: Do you understand that the riddance mid strap is only there for ankle support and that the lace doesn't come up to the ankle, right ? And that this strap has not the same purpose as a mid-foot strap as on most XC shoes ? Moreover flat pedal shoes have a soft construction, with plenty of built-in cushion, EVA sole,etc, so a lot of compressible materials, so adding a strap will definitely change nothing except to compress your foot and reduce damping capacity of your sole. If you want a more tight, more rigide shoe, what you are looking for is a clipless pedal shoe with a cache for the cleat, like the 5:10 maltese falcons. So here I find we are all getting pedantic so I will reach the Godwinn's point of this flat pedals discussion and summon Sam Hill that doesn't need any strap on his shoes to be the fastest EWS rider !

@Loki87: I don't get it, are you riding flat or clipless pedals ??? I just can't figure a way my heel move in my shoes... Maybe you should try to downsize your flat shoes.

@Loki87: Usually flat pedals shoes can feel boxy at the fore foot, that being a byproduct of wide outer sole to increase patch contact with the pedal. But simply using laces, you can tighten them quite well over the cuneiform/navicular/cuboid bones (upper foot, where the laces are tied) so your feet won't move at all inside the shoes. Do you ever remind of hiking/trekking/trail shoes with such features as a velcro strap even so those activities needs your foot to be extremley well maintained within the shoes ??? Boa application on trail shoes are quite anecdotic and only to replace full lacing (i.e. tie full lacing in place of a knot), not as a single strap like on XC shoes, so the suppleness and morphology adaptivity of laces to the feet remains. As I wrote before, straps on clipless shoes are only to bound your feet to the shoe during pedal uplift/upstroke to increase power transfer and control between your body and the bike, because the shoe is mechanically linked to the bike and not by the mean of sole friction against the pedal. There will be no benefit to use such a strap on a flat pedal, except cut blood circulation.
