Platforms for urban/dirt jumping. Clipless for trail/DH. I got the mallets cause I like having some sort of platform in case I have to unclip and ride a sketchy section.

I'm hoping I'll like them! I've heard that they take a while to break in, but after that they are solid.

Be warned: if the new aluminum pad contact knobs on the juicy levers are really stiff, like, binding stiff, send them back for warranty ASAP.
The shop I work in has had a few bad levers come in already. The good ones are really sweet though. The color for 07 rocks too.

I really love the DX pedals too, but can't justify the cost (even w/shop discount) when my clunky ol' wellgo platforms just won't die. The DXs are soooo buttery smooth.

Interesting. I'll be sure to check that out when they come in.

Everything should come in next week
Tomorrow though I'm throwing on:



Truvativ Stylos and an E-13 SRS I put on Hussefelts last week, but they're too heavy for me, so I'll give the Stylos a shot.
