I've got a set of "look" type clip pedals on my racer. After about 20-30 mins both feet start going to sleep (dead) . I dont remember this being a problem with my old cleated pedals; anyone else with similar problems? Any idea how to solve it??

wow... where exactly are they starting to fall asleep?
maybe it's your shoes? maybe your shoes are too tight and cutting off circulation?

Shoes arent too tight (in fact they're the same ones I used cleated). Deadening starts off across the ball then to the toes. If I take my feet off the pedals for 30s its usually OK, but itsa pain!

when I first read the title, I thought the guy had an accident, sorry but I can't feel a little stupid, anywayz the other guys suggestion holds water, your shoes might be one size smaller or your strapping ypour shoe lace very tight. Happy riding:beer: :beer:
