Just remember, those things go on the bottom of the shoe!Originally posted by dirtgirl
yeah, I got the tension screws on a pretty loose setting. I guess I meant the cleats. I've tried adjusting them and guess I still need to just keep trying more for that "sweet spot". I was just wondering if there is any guide to finding that sweet spot!
Sorry, tryin' to be funny.
But really, I was havin' a hard time clipping in/finding the cleat sometimes just because I didn't have it in a natural position. If you've got someone available to help this might work:
Take the cleats off the shoes...Sit on the bike with your foot on the floor (cleatless shoes are on)...then raise your foot up and set it on the pedal. Usually that first place is the most natural...have your assistant mark on the bottom of the shoe the approximate midpoint of the pedal. Then put the cleats on trying to get their midpoints lined up with the midpoint marked on the shoe. This should help when you go to clip in.
Now, I know your post was actually referring to clipping out, but I noticed when I got my cleat in a comfortable position that not only clipping in, but also clipping out was easier.
Just my $0.22.
