Mavic has introduced the Crossride UB - 1750g per pair, $200. Not too shabby.
Lake updated their famed winter shoe with a new split top collar, more reflective piping, a Vibram sole, and fewer seams down low. Also now available in wide sizes. $260. They also introduced some casual, sort of riding shoes - call them sneakers with a cyclists touch with some reinforcement here and stiffer sole there. $60 - 90
The Mongoose Otero Super retails for $900 and has RockShox suspension front and rear. Disc brakes and adjustable travel out back from 2.5 - 4in make this bike a reasonable choice for the money.
Redline Monocog Flite now has sliding dropouts. Value.
The XT Shadow lives.
