    Best $100 XC shoe?
    I've had a pair of Lake MX165's since 2008. It's finally time for a new pair of XC shoes, but the LBS doesn't carry Lakes anymore. I also can't find any dealers online. What is everyone's favorite XC shoe between $100 and $150? I liked the Lakes because they fit my wide foot well, and the 47 size was spot on to my US size 12. I've looked at the Giro Carbide and the Mavic Pulse...let me know.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    Very happy with the Giro Privateer.

    Good call on the Privateer. Picked up a pair today that were on sale for $119.99 and the store also had a 20% off everything in the store sale. Paid $101.75 including tax...hell of a deal.

    I picked up a pair of the giro gauges off jenson a month ago for $80 and have been very happy with them. They still have them but they are low on the sizing options now.

    Last year's Shimano M162 can be had for $100. Only down side (for me) is that it has a lot of white. I think it's considered an AM shoe, but yeah overspecialization is overrated.

    I grabbed codes for a little over 100 from jenson with their coupon code. No time on them, but they are nice shoes, even of they aren't neon yellow.

    second the CODES. unfortunately had to pay more ($130) because i wasn't aware of any code i can use but have had no regrets. big difference from my previous SHIMANO MTB SHOES.
