    Speedplay seperates from entire sidi during an uphill

    While going up a hill i twist out of my speedplay and the entire shoe parts and all totally breaks off of my sidis.I look down and basically my speedplay bracket is stuck in the speedplay pedal and my shoe has no parts in at all,just the four holes that are pre made from sidi.So before i know it ,its over i go.Nice road rash too!Hope this made sense.Anyone have this happen to them?I maintain my gear perfectly so it wasn't that.Thanks all.

    Nope. which pedals?

    Go to the speedplay website and submit an email - I was having trouble with my wife's light action pedals (not so light action!) and some guy from speedplay actually CALLED me to help me through it.

    So you had the speedplay shoes from sidi? No adapter plate required?

    What do you mean "entire shoe parts" - the cleat busted off your shoe or your shoe busted AND the cleat came off?

    Hate to say this but does sound like human error of some sort have pictures of the cleats and shoes?
    My cleats are screwed into the speedplay adapter plate 3 screws into shoe and 4 holding on the speedplay cleat.

    It may not be fancy but it gets me were I need to go.

    Did the threaded shoe inserts come out of the sole, did the screws strip, or did all 4 screws come loose and fall out at some point?

    I don't see how the screws can come out unless the 4 screws holding the cleat together come out. The cleat pretty much covers the screws that mount it to the shoe unless they strip out or the inserts come out of the sole of the shoe.

    You need to check your cleats, especially speedplays, every so often.

    speedplay cleats require a specific torque spec to function perfectly, its not hard to do but you will need a torque wrench. I also use loctite on my screws otherwise they will wiggle out. I have the lite actions and love them.

    Sorry to hear you crashed. Tagaderm is your friend!!!

    I saw this happen to a buddy of mine once...shoes and cleats were fairly new....but something happened and one just ripped out of the shoe....lbs said they never saw that before....he was lucky and didnt go down...thye replaced it and he never had another issue.
    I have had 2 pairs of SIDIs and only issues I have had is occasionally losing a screw, and stripping the aluminum extender plates once...
    Always check the screws as part of pre ride bike check and use loctite.....

    What other routine maintenace are you ignoring? You should probably have a lbs check over your entire bike

    The speedplay rep told me to tighten the cleat screws until you feel them click, and then go one quarter turn further.

    Lock tite is mandatory of course.
