So after getting my hellcats and going for a real ride here are my thoughts. 

at first, I was still having some trouble clipping in and out, however after adjusting the cleat position about 7 times I got it pretty good, I rode around my yard a bit praticing until I felt comfortable. 

I then went down to our local MTB reserve and hit the trails.I definitely noticed that throughout the ride they got easier to clip in and out of, perhaps the springs are just a tad tight until they wear in. 

by the end of the ride I was feeling very comfortable and the extra pedal platform is really useful for getting started on an uphill slope. 

I think I'll really like these.

Thanks yes I think they will be good with the Maxxis tyres, I have several mates who run the same setup and love it. 

Here it's dry and rocky with lots of thorns and things so should be very good. 

I've not raced on these yet either. but have a 42km cross country coming up so that will be a good test. 

In the meantime I'll be putting them through their paces on the local downhill trails.

My 3d printed tyre levers were a fail. Snapped one fairly quickly. Oh well. Back to the drawing board

Could be the material and not the design . Try making one identical to a Parks Tools or similar and then try .

"More human than human" is our motto.
You no longer have to look to science fiction to find the cyborg. We are all cyborgs now. Mobile phones, activity trackers, pacemakers, breast implants and even aspirins all act as biological, cognitive or social extensions and enhancements of our bodies and minds. Some have even predicted that human beings as we know them will be replaced by technically enhanced, god-like immortal beings within 200 years. Or at least rich people will.

Picked up a new lid today. Should be a lot better than the crappy 10 year old thing I had before.

I just mean like in the last second she looks back at the camera and smiles, as I take the photo. so she isn't trying to "hold" a pose or smile.. 

seemed to work well

Yeah well the new minion (in the pic here) went straight on and inflated with just a floor pump, but my old minion with wire bead wouldn't inflate for love or money.

I took a darkroom class last year, and the instructor gave us all a wake up call when she talked about digital media being obselete in 20-30 years. I don't know anyone who transfers data from a floppy disc to cd's now. It's just a good reminder to print those important shots, and keep your negatives.
