This article by Steve Hogg seems to indicate the cleat positioning for a track sprinter should as forward as possible. Do you guys agree? It's so hard to find good articles about bike fit for track riders!
work effectively. Conversely many track sprinters also demonstrate readily that a far forward cleat position can be made to work just as effectively for them. Published studies of cleat position generally conclude that cleat position doesn’t have a lot to do with the ability to generate power. However cleat position has a profound effect on the relative pattern of muscle enlistment.My experience is this – generally speaking (and I include that caveat because there will always be exceptions), the shorter and more extreme the effort, the further forward the ideal cleat placement.• For general track riding, I would reduce the amount of foot over the pedal by a mm or 2 depending on shoe size and event.
• For sprinters and kilo riders, I would at least halve the recommended amount of foot over the pedal
