setting up cleat position
#1
I've got a new pair of shoes for my commute, as such it's time to retire the old pair.
However the cleat position on the old shoes are spot on.  Anyone know a nifty method to allow me to replicate cleat position.

Or failing that can anyone suggest a method for setting up the cleats, as I set the cleats in the old shoes 6 years ago!

Thanks.

Leave them loose. Put shoes on, sit on bike and clip in.  Get comfortable.  Get wifey to tighten from underneath with allen key.  Job done.

It took me a fair few attempts last time. It can take half hour or so's pedalling for an ache to appear from a misaligned cleat. Assuming you have new cleats (should do really when changing shoes as they do wear down, new cleats engage noticeably better) then try and get them similar visually to the old ones. This will give a good base point for making adjustments.

Although we're talking commute here so the setup is different.

I have my cleats on my mtb as far back as possible so I can drop my heals easier, I have it the same on my commuter to as it feels strange otherwise. Just a thought.

cheers gents.

dgw15 that's an interesting website.

I've tried to copy the alignment and moved it forward a bit, I will test it out and make adjustments as required.
