Looking for a good pair of DH shoes with cleats (!!) havent found any good ones who lasted for me...
second Q: I have a fox Van fork (2006) and now for some reason i started to feel that the 20 MM axle is loose in the hub (crossmax XL) or maybe the hub is loose... anybody ever experience something like this ??

shimano dx shoes.

if you have your bolts tight on the fork, it is likely the hub. remember to follow the directions in the manual for tightening the bolts. i think it is axle first, then axle-thread side pinch bolts, cycle the fork, then the other set of pinch bolts.

Loose axle on that fork? Uh Oh, that could be trouble....
Check to make sure the dropouts haven't cracked, where the internal bolt ends thread into...it was a problem for those forks from over tightening the pinch bolts. (factory spec was 19 inch pounds I think), pretty hard to measure when you're changing a flat in the woods....
