Super bike profile! Just to add clarification - it's never been demonstrated that the -11 speed chain is less strong or durable than the 10 speed versions (at least from what I can find or have heard). However, the 10 speed wheels for Shimano/SRAM wheels might be minutely stronger and more durable, considering the extra dish required for the 11th cog. Mud clogging might be an additional issue for the 11 speed, but spacing difference is so small, that is only theoretical.

Nokon segmented housing is another "compression-less" alternative and can perhaps work better with tight bends. It's light and flashy, but pricey, and some might question it's ability to resist dirt penetration, but it is fully lined FWIW.

Alex, thanks for the link. The photos for this review were taken when the shoe was relatively new. The key here is the Mavic shoe mated to the ATAC pedal prevents the denting. Inspection of the Fury sole after a few months of almost daily use reveals minimal marring from pedal-bail pressure, thanks to support from the sole's deep lugs. The Mavic ATAC pedal will do what ATAC pedals have always done to other shoes.

Nice interview! Commentary on live feed by @dopersuck said actually faster riding those stairs than running. Some dude posted to twitter feed about 0.3 sec

Colnago C59 disc with formula hydraulic discs and hacked Di2 10 speed. Looks like tubulars on the Vision carbon wheels. Flat pedals too!

@ChrisFallon Thanks for the comment. You're a well-informed reader and while we were doing this long-term review, we didn't even notice the new cleat was released this summer. I'll be putting the Easy Cleat option for a run (literally) in the next couple of weeks and will add to the review with an update.

@craigmacintyre I checked the release angle and find it closely matches the advertised of 15 degrees. We rode the S-Track with the standard included cleats without the optionally available composite cages, so indeed your statement is true. The shoe treads never contact the pedal, the interface is cleat to pedal only. With the cages, that will likely change. I've spoken to a pro bike fitter local to me about this and he began using the S-Track as his recommended mtb pedal soon after it came out for this very reason.
The Eroica sample I had rode better than the Grand Bois Cypress, it seems more supple-smoother on pavement in particular. However, Chris Clinton of Challenge told me we have a pre-production sample and the original review noted that there was no second red PPS layer inside the casing. That might change the review of the Eroica, espcially when comparing it to another tire. With the second belt, it may hold up to "vicious" gravel, but that remains to be seen. Even based on the pre-production sample, I would chose the Eroica over a Cypress for a ride that went off pavement. --Clifford
