I am riding my trainer to try to get used to the rascals
clip-in,clip-out,clip-in, clip-out, etc..
They are Shimano A520s with SPD cleats. I have Specialized
Taho MTB shoes.
The LBS put my bike on the fitting frame and I was surprised and terrified
when I found out that I could not release the cleats
The first few times I could not turn my heel out far enough
to do the disengage.
The tech greatly reduced the spring tension and after a
few more tries I sorta go it going...
I was surprised how far out the shoe could pivot before
side pressure starts to mount. ( is this the 'float'?).
It seems to me that a 'brisk' motion works much better than
slowly increasing the angle, I think that sometimes my foot
moves in the shoe rather than the whole shoe moving...
Evidently the shoe clip is a lot tougher than the frame around
the clip in mechanism, the frame is quicky 'scarifying'.
Any (survival) suggestions for using the rascals will
