Fox Announces Full Details of Dropframe Trail Helmet
@Vudu74: where do you live, gnarnia? I can’t say I’ve ever ridden through a migration of massive butterfly’s. And, like, how massive? Pick you up and fly away massive?

Video: How Do the Enduro Pros Set Up Their Pedals?
@spaztwelve: looks like his cleats are possibly back as far back as those shoes will allow by looking at his left foot. Impossible to tell for sure without seeing the bottom of his shoes. So considering where this discussion all started, he seems to be following the same logic of slamming the cleats back....can’t say I’ve seen many high end xc shoes with the cleats mounted further back like the giro chamber 2’s.

@WAKIdesigns: don’t disagree about James being a bit A-type in the flats vs clips debate. I see this as more of a biomechanics issue though. As for the squat reference, that was more from being yelled at by pt’s and coaches anytime I was too far forward on a squat, and discussing it with someone who has dedicated most of their life to human movement and bodily balance, just happens to apply to bikes also. Let’s see a drawing of a new dual cleat shoe, I know you can come up with something :D

@islandforlife: if you’ve spent some time in a gym, think of proper form on a squat. You’re driving through your heels to get the most strength and reduce risk of injury. Similar concept when climbing, drive through your heels more. Will take a second to get used to and you’ll notice some different muscles being sore. When seated climbing, and when I referred to roadies in the last comment, most of your weight is supported by sitting on your bike and your legs are just pushing the bike forward by mechanical advantage. When you’re standing and descending most of your weight is supported by your feet. Higher risk of injury on long rough descents for this reason. There’s a lot of bouncing and pushing which is a huge risk of injury if hinging off your ankle, as you’re trying to control repetitive compressions and g forces. Personally I consider it better to change and learn climbing technique vs loss of strength and fatigue on descents.

There’s so much more to this than just preference. Anybody running their cleats far forward on a shoe (somewhat excluding roadies, who still shouldn’t) are risking long term injury. Riding a Mtb requires a lot of support in your legs. Hinging off your ankle by balancing off your toes or ball of foot is highly stressful to your ankle, calves, achilles tendon, and all the way into your hips. Flats or clips it doesn’t matter, spindle should be in or near the center of your foot. For those who don’t believe, this is what led to the creation of the massive pedaling innovations catalyst pedal, and there is a ton of bio mechanics science in this throughout other sports and sports medicine.

First Look: Ibis' Longest, Slackest, and Burliest Ripley
@Snowsed341: was looking at sizes last night, as I had the same dpx 2 thought. Fox doesn’t make a metric one that small. Would take some creativity, but I think it’s doable still....
