Have people tried the LeWedge?

http://www.lemondfitness.com/products/lewedge/

I started to have some knee pain and thought that I would givese a try. Does anybody have any feedback?

Specialized has a shoe with a Vargus shim, but they are too narrow for my feet.

I have one under the cleat in my left shoe. Seems to do what it says on the box, i.e., reduces knee injury and pedal fatigue. Apart from smoothing out the track of my left knee I think I'd only know I had one installed was if it was removed.

My Specialized road shoes apparently achieve the same goal with an insole. I haven't felt the need for it with my commuting (MTB-style) shoes.

I think there was a thread on this over in Road Cycling a few months back.

I haven't used that particular product. I just grabbed a 10c piece and drilled a hole in it, home made wedge for 10c. It works great.

Yes it is a Federal offence to deface money.

CHEERS.

Only if you intend to pass it off as currency. At least that's how it is here

The 10c piece is okay as a straight lift on one shoe but doesn't wedge.

Haven't used the Lemond wedges but have used other, good for tight it bands or achilles. The specialized body geometry are properly aligned but actually have very little wedge angle. The measuring thingy looks pretty cool too, i'd like to know that angle rather than guessing..
