    I have been riding with a pair of the Danny Macaskills for about two months now. Lightweight like the Freerider, but has a stiff sole like the Impact.

    The only one I would consider if I rode with flats. Looks a little bulky on pics, but it isn't in reality. Just try on one if you have the opportunity.

    Ok, I just ordered a pair from Competitive Cyclist. Freerider VXi - Charcoal / Grey for $83.97. I hope I ordered the right size. I looked at all my shoes and they are anywhere from 8-10, so I ordered size 9.

    I like FiveTen Men's Impact High Shoe because it is a boot with ankle protection. When I am out in the back country I like some more ankle support, protection against rocks and plants, and something I can hike out in if necessary.

    I love my Sam Hills just for wearing. Worked great the few times I road in them before going clipless. They look a lot like those Freerider VXi. Too bad the red ones are full price. They are sweet. I'd get a pair on sale just to wear. I have a thing for red shoes.
