    cleat twisting on shoe

    Hi all,
    Just got a lightly used pair of Sidi Dominators.....loving them! However, today, I screwed on a Crankbrothers mountain cleat and was practicing some cyclocross dismounts, and I noticed that the cleat twisted sideways on the shoe. I've tightened these things as tight as they go, yet for some reason the screwplate in the shoe keeps sliding up to one side.

    Any idea on how to fix this?

    Thanks!

    You should be able to get to the screwplate through the inner sole of the shoe. It may need to be replaced.

    I just called and spoke with a lovely lady on SIDI's consumer service line. She walked me through some troubleshooting steps. The problem is now fixed, the culprit being some small debris stuck between the screwplate and the sole, which popped the screwplate out of it's "track". Problem solved very quickly and easy!

    Be sure to grease the threads lightly too.
