I've was a clipless rider during my mtb days, and even used them on the road for a while (mtb spd) until this year when I switched over to non-clipless pedals. I liked the freedom of being able to run a variety of shoes, but always kinda missed the clipped in feel. Just recently I threw my 540's back on and noticed how much closer my feet were to the crank arms when using non clipless pedals (RO-25's). I found that with non clipless my foot would be about 1~2mm away from the crank arm and when I put my 540's back on I was quite a bit further away - approx. 10~15mm (without actually measuring). I have to say that I much prefer the former, being as close as I can be to the crank arms.
So, still wanting to get back into clipless and also looking to get a more road oriented pedal, how much side to side play is there with Look style cleats? I'm looking at either some Looks, or 105's but I really want to be able to get my shoe right up next to the crank arms. I know with some mtb spd cleats, the oval mount will allow some side to side adjustment, but even with them I don't think I could get right up next to the crank arms. Thanks.
