Properly installing LOOK style cleats on my shoes.. help
Well I took the plunge and finally bought some road shoes and some Look Keo clasics.
I installed the pedals, was very easy. I applied a little synthetic grease to the threads and screwed the pedals in. Easy install. Not alot of torque as per some threads. (if you guys want to add something let me know)
Any how, my shoes MAVIC
have some sort of grid. I placed the cleats as per the instruction (keo manual) and tightened the screws over the washers and such.
What are the lines on the shoes for? How do they work in relation to the centermark on the cleat?
How do you determine the lateral placement and fore and aft placement of the keo cleat on the shoe?
This is what I have done:
I place the cleat in such a way that when I press on the pedal the ball of my foot seems to be transfering the force towards the cleat and onto the axis on the pedal. However this is what my cleats look like isntalled on my shoes: Is this correct or should both lines be the same?
In addition, does mavic sell replacement ratchet pieces just in care I need to replace them in the future?
