Hey folks, My wife and I are having some issues with our shoe covers interfering with clipping into our Shimano Ultegra SPD-SL pedals. It appears that the sewn edge of the shoe cover is getting in the way of easily clipping into our pedals. Said sewn edge is reducing the available space for the nose of the pedal to clip into/under the nose of the SPD-SL cleat. If either of us actually is able to successfully clip in we may or may not be able to clip out since the connection is now MUCH TIGHTER than it ought to be.
I tried cutting out a section of this sewn/thicker material but I had to use a bit of force and when the scissors finally did cut through the sewn section they/me also cut deep into the rest of the shoe cover. Ooooooooops.... Scrap that set of shoe covers.
On our ride yesterday this proved so problematic for my wife that she decided it was better to have really cold feet than to suffer the shoe cover.
What do you folks do to solve this?? Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated!
