    move the cleats back or the seat back?

    i've just gone back to clipless and i'm not sure where the cleat should be relative to the ball of my foot. it seems a little be forward of the ball. so should i move the cleat back on the seat back (the seat feels too far forward too, i should note)

    The cleat should be directly under the ball of foot. Ride awhile and see if it's close enough. Ride awhile and see if you get used to the saddle position. I prefer a forward saddle, I believe it's best for your knees.

    It's a personal preference thing. I like my cleats just a little behind the centerline of the bones that make up the ball of the foot. A good starting place is centered.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.
