Mountain Bike Shoes (Author: Nino)

Okay admit it - you are now clinicaly proven a weight-weenie if your reading this, but anyway!! I haven't put these weights in with the rest of the bike component weights as I don't really class shoes as part of the bike, more an item of clothing. Never the less it is still of interest to see what some popular MTB shoes weight - after all they are part of the rotational mass..

Weights are weights for one single shoe and are the actual weights. A concise review of the shoe and a link to the manufacturer website is also provided.
