    are spd compatible shoes compatible with crank bros?

    ive been looking at shoes for dh. i need something i can clip in with. i hate flats for dh. when the shoes are spd compatible, does that mean they only work with shimano? or will they work with crank bros cleats too? these are the shoes ive been looking at

    and these

    has any body had any experience with these shoes? ive worn the 661's but i havnt ridden with them. they felt pretty comfortable walking around. but that doesnt mean they will be good for dh. anybody know anything about them?

    What kind of CB pedals are you gonna be running?
    I run mallets with 661 Session SPDs. I dont think it could get much better

    ill be running mallets all the time. currently i just use my xc shoes. they work ok but they're deffinatly not the best. do your shoes have the really stiff bottom like for efficency? or are the flexy like normal shoes?

    I had some Lake shoes that were pretty decent for DH riding, they have a semi hightop with a neoprene sock thing to keep rocks and crap from getting in. The soles were also more like a hiking shoe for walking back up those nasty sections. I gave up on clipless last year though, got tired of breaking pedals...

    the 661's are stiff enough to do a xc ride all day but at the same time you can walk comfortably in them.

    Adding pins to the 08 mallets will make it almost impossible for a guy like me to clip out with flat shoes. It would literately be glued on.

    Give the CB Acids a try. I liked them much better than my Mallets.
