i just got the x.9 after bending an x.5 by pedaling to hard uphill in my highest gearing. The x.9 seems to be suiting my needs well. im running an eight speed drive train, with an x.5 shifter, sram crank, sram casette, and a shimano chain. Its smoother and shifts much better than my old x.5. I like it. the x.9 seems to be a lot more durable than the lesser models also. Also, i will be able to use this to upgrade to a nine speed drivetrain in the future. The pricing here is also a plus. The x.9 is only 40 dollars more than the x.7, but the x.0 is almost 140 dollars more than the x.9! Its good upgrade for a reasonable price. Unless your looking for some carbon, and your drive train is an 8/9 speed, this is a great option.
These are comfortable, grippy shoes, with a surprisingly high level of durability, especially for the cost. They work great with my straitline platforms. I've shredded the soles a little, but i also used these while riding a brakeless bmx bike through a garage (the concrete was rough, and i had to use the foot brake strategy more than once). For the price, these shoes will do the job. Ive got grippier shoes, but found these to be more than functional... Vans are the bomb.
these are great riding shoes. tons of grip, very comfortable. The sole is awesome... spider rubber is tough and resilient, and finds traction in the wettest, muddiest of conditions. these shoes absorb impact with ease, stick to platform pedals like !whoa! (i have used these with straitlines, redline alloys with molded pins, and black label polycarbonates), and are packed with useful features. get these if you can. If your on platforms, you won't be disappointed.
