Hey ya'll I haven't seen a post on this in a while. I currently ride shimano SPD's. While they do get the job done there is numbness and some hot spots. The hot spot seems to be centered over the cleat and pedal. It's not debilitating but uncomfortable none the less. I'll loosen up the shoes and most of the numbness will vanish but the hot spot remains. Should I consider different shoes? What about different pedals? I have looked into other pedals and think that the pedals with a larger platform would be more comfortable (distribute my weight more evenly). I have been considering Look, Dura-Ace, and Ultegra. Any experience or opinions out there?
