Default Hyporeflexia in SACD mechanism?

Can anyone tell me why does SACD cause Hyporeflexia? Just saw the FA 2012 errata, which changes Hyper to Hypo. Shouldn't a lesion of the lateral corticospinal tract included in SACD cause Hyperreflexia?

friedrich's ataxia causes dorsal column lesion,cerebellar tract lesions,lateral corticospinal tract
(UMN as well lower motor neuron lesion)-----hyporeflexia is most commonly seen than hyperreflexia in friedreich's...it usually causes mixed peripheral neuropathy...
