    Miche Pedals

    I have been using miche's mt-4 pedals with the yellow(fixed cleat)cleat on the track and loops around the park. Does anyone know if i could use look cleats because it may be knda difficut to get miche cleasts around here.

    on another note would riding a fixed cleat cause my feet to go numb?

    I've no experience with the Miche pedals so don't know if the Look cleats will fit.

    Provided your existing cleats are positioned right for you, the fixed cleats should be fine and will feel much more secure in sprints / out of the saddle etc.
    The only way to knwo is to try em. Some people really need the float and dont get on with fixed cleats but I know lots of trackies - including me - who ride the fixed ones without problems.

    I'll try my shoes/cleats in your pedal for the next ride.

    To the best of my knowedge I think they use the same cleat being that they're almost the same pedal. I had a set of Miche' with a floating cleat. I used some old toe strap loops screwed into the plastic part to add some security for hard sprints.

    Re: numbness. Loosen the bolts holding your cleats so theyre able to move a little under pressure. Go for a toot around the block and carfully undo your shoe leaving it on the pedal. Mark the cleat position and tighten it down.

    The common mistake with fixed cleats is to point your foot dead straigt. Your leg normaly doesnt like this, espessialy if you stand duck footed. When you used a fixed cleat your pressing your foot's side against either side of the shoe hard!

    You'll find alot of people who've suffered that problem now run speedplay zero's due to the multi adjustability. Eventualy you learn to spot how your feet like to angle. Try setting up clip and strap for feet that like to point out.....now thats a pain!
