Put some Shimano 105s on my Allez, attached and centered the cleats on the shoe, and did an EASY 7 miles. I mean wow. The hills were cake, my average speed went from around 14 to 17-18 mph, and best of all I didn't fall, even in traffic. Love it.
My question is: I'm trying my best to not touch the asphalt with the cleats to reduce wear, but already there is some scuffing on the back of the cleats. 1) Is that normal? 2) Better to have the wear on the back of the cleat as opposed to the front, right?
If you're on the fence about clipless pedals, GO GET SOME! Night and day.
