    Buy a Marzoocchi it will last you half a decade or until its reliablility bores you into buying something else......

    Specialized and Jamis seem to be good in 2007!

    I've got two pairs of the DXs, they are pretty nice but I prefer my Azonic A-frames, and moreso my Crank Bros Eggbeaters. I find the outside shape of the pedals a little uncomfortable under my shoes, whereas the A-frames are squared-off, giving a better platform.

    I bought the DXs and rode for about 2 hours, i liked the grip, and they suite the stumpy well cas i can keep my feet clear of the rear a frame where the rear shock linkage is. I dunno weither i should waste my money on some eggies tho, cas i wont ride clipped in much, only for trail rides..
