Welcome to the crazy world of incompatibility which is modern mtb bikes. These are amazing machines... of course I just picked up new 2.3 tires and rescued and cobbed some Avid V style brakes from a broken frame for my '91 now I just need daylight... or lights. I should be riding now that the snow got et.

Shimano was the blueprint for Steve Jobs. Incompatibility is money in the bank.

You probably shouldn't ride your bike while barefoot, but I did everything else barefoot in the summers back then. Those pedals on bare feet were horrible.
