    Cleat wedges

    Hia, I was going about my bike fit yesterday and noticed that after a few minutes of semi-intense pedalling the outside of my right foot started aching, the left followed suit a short while after. Thought I'm doing something wrong but after a bit of searching found out that it's probably just...

    Cleat questions...

    HI all, I have finally ended my long quest to find cleated shoes that actually fit my feet. I am now the proud owner of a pair of Lakes MTB Shoes. But now I have many questions... 1) When I am cycliing with people who wear road shoes, I hear ka-klunks when people clip in and out. My shoes do...

    Replacing SPD cleat... replace pedals too?

    Hi, I've done about 4,000k on my current SPD cleats and pedals and they feel very "floaty" now. Like my foot moves around a lot on them. I was going to replace to cleats as they look worn but should I replace the pedals too? How long do they typically last?

    Cleat setting

    Done the seated test and toes point inwards Done the marching on spot and stand before looking at feet. Knees point out and right foot straight bit left toes point out. Pedals are new and stiff so to get any setting without the cleat moving when I try to remove has meant the teeth have dug into...

    A pedal and cleat change.....

    Hi, I have a Giant TCR and have now come to the point where I will hibernate this until March time. This bike has SPD pedals and I want to replace them with more of a road pedal, the SPDs will transfer to the Tri-cross so once the good weather returns there is no need to switch back, just add...

    Keo cleat rubber inserts, available separately ?

    Some how i've ended up with several pairs of the standard Keo cleats and i much prefer the Keo Grip cleat ie with the rubber inserts underneath. I know many don't like them due to clipping in issues but some how they work for me and i'm happy to avoid any slippage risks when ever i can. I...

    Is there more than one kind of Look cleat?

    My Look cleats are well worn out, so I got some replacements: But they're not working. Basically, they seem too big - not by much, but even a couple of mms means they just won't engage with the pedals. The fact that these are described as 'delta compatible' makes me wonder whether I've...

    New to cleats - help

    Hi, I’m 52, never used cycle shoes with cleats and I am nervous about it. Not falling off but: 1. Concerned I won’t like the fixed foot position 2. What if I get a mechanical I can’t fix? At least with trainers I can walk the bike miles if needed? 1 - I suspect is an irrational fear? 2 - Is it...

    Cleat adaptors

    I have just bought a pair of Shimano RW5 winter cycling road boots. These allow both 3 bolt SPD-SL and 2 bolt SPD cleats . What they dont tell you until you open the instruction leaflet is that you need a cleat adapter, SH-SM40 to use the 2 bolt SPD cleats. Has anyone else encountered this issue...

    Cleat set up?

    I'm having a brain fade dumb moment, for some reason my right shoe/cleat feels like the ball of my foot isn't on the pedal spindle, unlike the left, and it feels like my foot needs to move back, to get the instep over the spindle, as it feels a bit like the spindle is nearer my instep. Seems...

    SPD Cleat Bolts

    Can anyone point me to a good supplier of cleat bolts? I seem to have developed an alarming habit of losing them of late and wouldn't mind a few spares... :blush:

    Cleat tension preferences?

    As time has gone on I’ve been setting my SL pedals tighter & tighter. I now have maximum tension for the turbo. Shouldn’t you go as tight as you can as long as you can get in & out? Who else like them tight is alright?

    Is there a packing piece to fill in the place where cleats fit on the bottom of MTB shoes? I dont use cleat but have some comfortable MTB shoes with a hole for cleats, my pedals keep falling into this home, so I need to pack it out to the level of the sole of the shoes. I could make some using...

    Anyone using cleat wedges?

    I'm getting some ankle and knee pain on longer rides attributed to foot position. I had a badly sprained ankle which has left me very toe out with considerable forefoot and rearfoot varus. I can mostly correct toe out with cleat position andvangle but wondered if anyone has experience using...

    swapping shimano to look cleat positioning?

    I ride with shimano spd sl on my road bike which i had fitted as part of a bike fit. I'm starting to ride more track and have to use look keo pedals that are on the hire bike. How does positioning of the two compare, i know the shimano cleat is bigger but i am wondering if i was to draw around...

    Knee pain and cleat position

    Went for a longer ride today and im getting knee pain in my left leg on the top of my knee. Im certain my saddle height is right I cant go higher and risk not being able to touch the ground in the saddle. Im suspecting saddle too far forward or cleat positioning. When I fitted my cleats I pretty...

    Cleat bolt won't tighten

    I recently started using spd cleats and one of the bolts doesn't tighten/screw in as far as the other on the same shoe. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, what did you do? Do I just need to get a new bolt? Just to be clear - it tightens a bit and is probably not too dangerous, but...
