I got some of the nashbar road pedals that are designed on the look technology. My old pedals use the same cleats. So all I had to do was put the pedals on and ride. Wrong. First I had to set the new pedals to unclip as easy as they would go and then I still had to give a pretty good twist to disengage. My second concern is that the cleats slide on the pedals like they are on ice. I do like the ease of clipping in.
So If I want to stop this sliding or floating on the pedals some how can I do this? I am thinking about taking some paint and sand and seeing how this would work on the pedal to provide some friction. I am also thinking about taking a very sharp punch and putting a bunch of little punches on the places of the pedal where the cleat makes contact. These cleats have about 6 degrees of float so I guess that I could get some cleats with no float but what would be the fun in that. Maybe cleats with less float would be what I need. I was pedaling and let my left heal come to the inside and the next thing that I knew the back of the crank had hit the bottom of my shoe heal and was trying to rip my foot off.
