I would like some help with diagnosing why I can't unclip my feet from the pedals without great force.
I've had them for a couple of weeks and have fallen 4 times. I've adjusted the cleats every which way. I have the tension of the pedals adjusted all the way to the minimum (turning the screw to the left). I think there may be an incompatibility between the shoes and the pedals. My last resort is to grease the clips, which seems plausible that it could resolve the issue, but having slippery pedals dosen't sound like such a smart idea. I bought them at REI under the advice of a salesman. Unfortunately, the closest REI is 2 hours away, but I will go to a LBS if I have to. Anyway, please look at what I have a tell me what you think. By the way, I have the cleats centered as best I could in the opening on the bottom of the sole and they are pointed to the front.
