Ok, this is hard to put in to words so try to stick with me.
I have a pair of older style SPD MTB pedals. Just going clipless so I'm new to this part of the cycling world.
So I set up my cleats in the shoes, with the arrow pointing forward (towards the toe) making the smaller part of the cleat up front. So I go to put the pedals on accordingly - to my surprise...the way the pedal is has the bigger end facing forward. This being the end that does not go in unless the other end is already in...so if you're still with me it means I have to clip in from rear to forward.
Am I missing something simple? I tried switching it around, but it's not possible to get the bigger side in going forward. Any help along with making fun of me appreciated.
