    Cycling Shoes and SPD clip position

    I have a set of MTB Cycling Shoes that are SPD that i use for road biking.
    On the bottom of the shoe there are 2 positions to put the Clip on. What is the difference between the 2 positions? I alway have mine on the part that is furtherest to the front of the shoe.
    is there a difference of positions for road and mt bike?
    Just thinking and want feedback before i reposition my clip
    thanks

    Basically line up the ball of the foot with the centreline of the pedal, and adjust the angle so the float (amount your foot can rotate when clipped in) accounts for your natural stance (foot outward, inward, etc.). If your foot is forced inward on the bike but you tend to be naturally outward, you will have knee problems and its pretty painful (been there).

    edit: Same position for MTB/Road.

    If the threaded plate can be replaced , then you may want additional Insole support
    over the inside patch where it is not covered ,to allow for that replacement.
