Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Lake CX120 cleat installtion

This is my first pair of clipless shoes, Im not sure exectly what im doing. I have Time Impact pedals, which use the 3 hole triangle pattern..not sure the real name. Anyways, there is a plate for the other types of mounts that can slide back and forth. Since im just using the 3 holes, the plate just slides and rattles around when walking. How am i supposed to secure it down? Can i remove it?

heres a pic pointing to the plate.

you should be able to tighten it down until it doesn't slide

How so? Just put a screw in there just to hold it in place? Im not using any of the holes in the plate...only the three non-movable ones...

Like you said, you can remove it. Just take out the foot bedding. On my shoes it is really easy to take them out, I don't know what its like on yours. I wouldn't be ripping stuff out of the shoe, but the liner should come out easily.

Try again... There's no way in hell Lake glued down the liner. They know that some peeps will use the 3 holes for road cleats, and will remove the plate they don't need, right? Right?
