Cleat mounting tool
Looking to mount cleats on cycling shoes, and finally came up with a tool to mount them in a correct position based upon shoe size. I've launched the Clet Rak on Kickstarter and really thought it would go. Now I'm looking to see if I can get "real" feedback on the forums and see what I might be missing.
how about a link or an image? Tough to see what's so innovative when decent tools are already on the market for less than $25.

Interesting tool but a bit pricy for an individual owner. Shops might be able to justify it.
Good tool, your idea is awesome man... wish you the best of lucks, your idea is good.
Have you thought about taking on a big cycling company as a "deep pockets partner"?
Wish you all the best.
It appears that the shoe (and thus the cleats) are referenced to the toe cavity on the shoe, rather than the pedal spindle.
Different companies use different lasts to manufacture their shoes. They differ significantly in dimensions.
So unless I'm missing something, just referencing the toe cavity on the shoe when installing cleats won't get them in the same spot relative to the ball of our foot, which is what we really need.
Just my $0.02 but I don't see how this machine will get my feet over the same place on the pedal when changing shoes.
I would say that looks like a good device for somebody who will use it frequently (e.g. a fitter) and not necessarily a recreational cyclist who may install a new cleat every few years at most.
I was thinking in something similar this morning... what about if the new shoe is larger??
