    Looking good that Ex9.
    I've got the Ex8 and tried DMR V12 flats for a while but recently got some SPD shoes so put the Crankbrothers pedals that came with the bike back on, much better and don't know why I wasted £50 on flat pedals when the Specialized Tahoe shoes only cost £60, should have gone SPD from the off.
    I've changed my tyres to Panaracer Fire XC Pro as those OE fit Bontys were censored and had no grip at all in any conditions.
