Ask Pinkbike: CushCore vs. Tubes, Fork Setup, Sticky Brake Pistons, & 12-speed Chain Length
@Perra: around here, I don't think tires get a chance to squirm when the rocks, gravel, and chunder are moving underneath. I'll take the increased grip, comfort, and control. Maybe if I lived somewhere with high-g corners I'd feel different.

Inserts might deter sidewall tears. What cuts or punctures easier, a fully inflated balloon or a soft compliant one? I'd argue that if you can reduce your tire pressure by 5-10 psi due to inserts, that your sidewall will be more compliant when it encounters a razor sharp rock and deflect instead of slice open.... I've never had a true sidewall tear after 6 years of running inserts with exo casings. Every once in a while I'll still get a small "snakebite" puncture/cut right at the bead from smashing through the insert that's fixable with a plug. But so far I've yet to kill a wheel in over 12,000 miles at ~18 psi in very rocky terrain and weighing 170 lbs. In that time, I've ridden home twice on a rear flat, NBD. I won't ride without inserts. Cushcore to be specific.

Specialized Announces New Riprock Kids' Bikes
Commencal has a store in golden CO at their USA headquarters. derekr is canadian so he's probably seen Spawns in shops in Canadia or maybe PNW. The whole point of the argument that it's weak sauce that the big 3, Specialized, Trek, & Giant, refuses to use their massive resources to make a decent bike for a decent price at a decent weight. Kudo's to the little guys I guess. But feeble on Specialized's behalf in this case. They took baby steps and charged a premium for them.

@codypup: hahaha. I made some good ones in there. And even was unintentionally punny.

@codypup: I had to look them up. They look nice but I'm a 42.5 and doesn't look like they come in half sizes. I have the goretex Shimano SPD "hiking boots" in 43. They fit great with a thick sock... Otherwise hot, and turn into swimming pools once water gets over the top or runs down my legs in the rain. Great for cold weather and adventure rides though.

Shimano Launches Ultread Soles & 2022 Footwear Range
My all-time favorite pair or riding shoes were the Shimano M221's in that sexy bright metallic blue from 20 years ago. Not sure if I can justify $430 bones to relive the magic. But every she since then hasn't met the bar.

Goretex? Your feet must not sweat. Also goretex shoes become swimming pools for your feet when they fill up with water that can't drain.
