I did think about the shimano DX's as they take a spd cleat, maybe next time :D the 5:10's have come and are incredibly grippy on the V8's im running

The DX shoes I have are flats only. 5.10's are prob more grippy but they feel to bulky for my liking. :)

Never ever used SPDs, seen too many injured riders because of them, never had the need for them.

Seems to be a certain unjustified (in my eyes) snobbery against flats/platforms but I prefer them;

I'm too bandy for Spuds, having ridden horses since I was eleven years old, and they b*gger my knees! Though I have recently bought some pedal extenders to adjust the Q-factor of my Ritchey's and make it the same as my DMR V12's/Wellgo Mag's etc...

Been out a few times on them now and I must say they are growing on me, a decent pair of shoes had made allot of difference, think I will run with the flats on my full sus, and Spuds on my reto's
Just need to learn jumping again with flats at speed

:D
