    Question about "hot spots"

    I have been riding my mtb on dirt county roads in rural Nebraska doing upwards of 20+ miles...

    as well as occasional jaunts in the Pine Ridge area for some single track goodness...

    I have 2 types of pedals some straight up Shimano SPD clipless and the Shimano SPD with clipless on one side and a cage style on the other (love these by the way)

    and Shimano MTB shoes...

    getting hot spots on my feet... not so much when I single track cause I am off the bike more... tried adjusting lugs and what not but still getting them...

    any clues?

    What model of Shimano SPD shoes? The lower end models allow quite a bit of flex in the sole, and it might be causing your problem.

    From the Shimano ad copy: Durable and lightweight rubber tread offers excellent traction and walking comfort.


    In my experience, sometimes "walking comfort" means pedaling pain when takling about cycling shoes.
