    ^^^ also, xtr cranks. A little heavier than the sram options, similar price. Cons: need bb and chainring. Pros: not carbon and thus won't have pedal / bb insert failure.

    I'm no bootfitter, but I always put foam in after molding. If nothing else, molding with foam already in there is just gonna make the liner thinner in that area and it'll pack out quicker.
