I check my bike almost every ride (brakes, gears, tire wear, etc) but rarely check my cleats.
I got to the parking area at the north end of the Suncoast Trail today and got the bike out of the car, my helmet, etc. When I pulled my cleat cover off it didn't make the usual sound. I checked my Speedplay cleat and 2 of the 4 screws were missing. When did they come out?
So I loaded everything in the car and headed home. Luckily I had some extra screws and after cleaning up the shoes I replaced all 4 screws on both shoes. Now I'm good to go for next time. Guess I'l be checking the cleats a little more often.
