    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.

    Adidas Hematomas. They protect your feet and last pretty well.

    As long as your foot is an inch narrower then the average American.

    I did like the shoe seemed really well built just super narrow.

    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....
