    I enjoyed the review despite the rather predictable end result, I myself have a set of XT trails which I found for a relatively cheap price and I completely agree that they have fantastic performance, like almost all of Shimano’s new components. I think that feedback to media is imperative, especially in reviews and so I thought I should just highlight a small point. During the review there was one very small mistake which slightly bothered me and that is ” It reduces unsprung weight in a critical area. ” this is actually incorrect as the pedal is bolted onto the main frame (albeit indirectly) which on a suspension bike is actually sprung mass. The unsprung mass would be a part of the bike that is not suspended from the ground, such as the wheel. If however you are talking about a non-suspension bike I can see your point but it is rather moot, because specifying the pedals as unsprung mass would be unnecessary because the entire bike is unsprung mass. Keep it up the reviews though guys but try to get your facts right next time eh? 😉
