I tend to use clipless off road and on road but before going with SPD clipless on the mountains I got two pairs of these and they are exceptionally good. Mine were size ten and i found even with my wide feet they came up slightly loose.

One thing I don;t like it that the super tacky rubber compound leaves marks everywhere. Accidentally wore them to dinner at a posh hotel in London and left black streaks all over their lovely floor that would not come out

i use clipless for mtb offroad, but i dont ride serious downhill, never had an issue quick releasing as always have it on the loosest tension, but at the same time my foot rarely comes out when i'm not expecting.

think i'm gonna try flats and 510s next summer

mtb spd can be good for commuting as the under sole generally covers the SPD, so you dont end up marking floors with the metal plate on the sole of the foot.
i wear shimano (always a full size up) m088 are good and about £50, but the northwave on offer for £45 on evans and CRB chain reaction get good reviews too (orange or lime green trim with black

I currently use shimano am flats but fancy some of these while there going cheap.



Very stiff soles compared to trainers. When I started using these, it immediately cured the soreness in the balls of my feet after rides. Super sticky rubber means they are about as close to being clipped in as you can get, without the hassle of spd's/cleats.

So would you recommend something like this for on-road use? (I own a Boradman Hybrid Comp btw). Or would the standard clip-on type of shoes be more suitable? if so, which one's? Ah, I remember my foot coming off the pedals on two different occasions :s got off lucky as I managed to regain my balance. I like the idea of not faffing about with the clip-on shoes and going for these, what's your guys take on it? thanks

You could try a 10, I reckon they'd be more like 9.5.



​I'm a size 9, so would Need a 9.5. The only reason I know they are small fitting is because the Mrs has some. Just thought I would get second opinion about the sizing. Thanks anyway.

Size is a red herring. Emily Batty races on a 29er and she's tiny, doesn't seem to hold her back. The parts aren't great on these but it is only £350. The frame is used on more expensive models so it us worth upgrading as parts wear out.

See a comment advising Trek bikes can only be collected in store or delviery by a member of staff. Must limit this deal to those in the local area.

whats the general consensus for the best value bike around the £350 mark? im thinking i might get a specialized hardrock over this?
really not sure about the 29er wheels as well as im only 5ft 6", would look like a clowns bike on me!

You could have just said that these items, though expensive, are also subject to the law of diminishing returns - this is, if you didn't want to explain what justifies a price like this. There was no need to insult anyone's intelligence, or to call people names. And when it comes to intelligence, I shall remind you that you don't know anything about me, and I'm not the one who's been a victim of a marketing department, and willing to spend £3000 on a pushbike. Just lose a kilo of body weight, is probably better for you in the long term and may even save you ££££.

And just as an edit: I notice you use the word 'value'. That's a very subjective term. 'Competitive price' would have been better.

I'm sure it meets "some" safety standards but,as In cars that are crash tested, some protect your head better.
A cheap helmet that sits in top of your head with no types of adjustments ie many inner foam pads that can be removed to fit better, an adjuster clip at the rear that makes it fit better and a lower back that protects MORE OF YOUR HEAD Will NOT work as well as the fox flux...
I have a fox flux and have been using it for years,I've tried many different types of helmets and it's the best one I have ever had.
I've yet to test its crash capabilities but if you never hear from again you know it didn't work and I'm dead....hahaha

all i meant was if you were not aware of the advantages of owning a decent helmet then the likelihood is it wouldnt represent good value for you, a case of reading text without the tone it was intended,I dont have an attitude at all my interpritation of your comment was not one of a question more of a statement saying its not worth the money, if i got this wrong I apologise, but anyone who follows bike posts will back me up on the fact that people vote good quality bike related items cold without any knowledge on the product other than "its cheaper in tescos" meaning that people who may take advantage of the deal may miss out

I think this looks like a decent price for a nice helmet (very well reviewed). But I'd personally be wary about buying without trying for the reason riders999 said.

Its so annoying when that kind of thing happens but I have found out on a few occasions that the Post office is usually the perpetrator for lying & faking signatures.Unless the signature can be proven that it was signed by some one who works there you wont get far.
