"I have been riding a Cronus CX since March of 2011.  Very nice and STIFF.  Like Joey said, aim it down a line and it goes there.  Power into the pedals goes to the bike.  Geometry works for me.  I got the same size as my…"

"STIFF. This thing is perfect if you are all about efficiency. I had a chance to ride it in vegas for the trade-show. you'll need some supple tires and a cozy seat. But, you'll pin every line you aim for. If you are riding ruff and tumbling…"

Thomas replied to Joel Farrow's discussion Carbon soles or nylon?
"I have had Eagle 5 Pro. These had soles out of nylon and were quite flexible. I would not overestimate the amont of running. If you must run the soil is mostly soft and the overall distance is mostly not more than 20 m."

"I have a cheaper pair of Shimano shoes with the nylon soles and at the beginning of MTB season got a deal on the fancy carbon soles.  I figured that I wouldn't like them for cross due to the stiff carbon soles, but ended up using…"

Jim Clark replied to Joel Farrow's discussion Carbon soles or nylon?
"I honestly can't say, because it seems counter-intuitive to me, but I have a couple of thoughts about it.  The first is that I have a really narrow foot that is sort of a 10 1/4.  I have a hard time finding shoes of any kind that…"

John Mansell replied to Joel Farrow's discussion Carbon soles or nylon?
"I perfer softer bottom shoes. I use only Rubber soled shoes for CX. Also, I don't like super stiff shoes for CX. I little bit of give helps with running and is more comfortable to wear. If your shoe gives one or two mm under pressure you…"

Jim Clark replied to Joel Farrow's discussion Carbon soles or nylon?
"Joel, I pondered the same thing when shoe-shopping this summer.  I ended up getting a pair of Giro Codes, which have a carbon sole made by Easton, and it's pretty stiff.  I can tell you that, for me, it makes running a LOT…"

"Since 10 days I am a proud owner of sidi dragons after having had the cheaper model for years. The dragon is really a step forward. The carbon sole is much stiffer when pedaling but running is no problem. One advantage are the more flexible spikes…"
