    We the people ... New shox or shoes

    Hay guys after you all know I have been having shox and shoe trouble, and on monday I am sending the shoes back to performance, and I could either get a credit refund, or new sidi's in return. So do you think I should get the new shoes, or get a credit refund, and get a new shox with the money form the shoes.
    Thanks

    Just get the shoes and get those reducers from a dealer and it will be cheaper than a new shock. Then ride that Manipoo untill it blows up and then get a Pushed shock or whatever. More miles for the money.

    What are your alternative for shoes? Seems like you need shoes and a functional shock. A new shock's going to cost more than the shoes as would a used Fox sent to PUSH - and you still need bushings.
    Either:
    A) Track down the spacers for the Manitou if you like it and get the Sidis
    B) Buy less costly shoes and get a Float then send it to PUSH if it's in your budget.
    Big hoopy.

    I have a pair of 661 shoes, and also a pair of answer shoes. I will probably just end up keeping the shoes because I love my sidi's.

    Nothing fits like a Sidi. Thank goodness they make the Mega sizes.
    Want to ride in this life and the next? Ask me how.

    I'd go for the shoes. Like they said above the shock costs more, and if you like the way Sidis fit (I do) Anything else will be a disappointment.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    This is all true, nothing else does fit like a sidi. Speaking of that, I have to clean them up tommrow, and take the cleats off and transfer them to the 661's. Thanks for you opinions. I am not quite sure on what I am going to decide on but it will most likely be the shoes.

    Go with the SIDI,SIDI,SIDI......as I cheer you on. Like you said nothing else quite fits like a SIDI.

    And how! My Redwing boots are 8.5 EE or EEE depending on model, so the 43 Dom 4 Mega shoes are the best.

    Hay guys, I just packed up my shoes, and I decided to get another pair of sidi's becasue I figured that I could not go without the sidi's. So thanks for all the votes for those who voted.
    Thanks
