Time RSX cleat installation

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Time RSX cleat installation

Hi,

I might be interested in buying time rsx pedals and I'm wondering if it's posssible to set the angle of the cleat when you screw it under you shoe, or is it always in the same angle (dictated by the three holes) ?

I'm really toe out and the float in itself would not be enough for me, I need a toe-out starting position

Thanks!

It is possible to adjust the angle on RSX cleats. I can't say whether there is sufficient adjustment for you because I don't have enough information.

I don't really understand how you get to change the angle.

Looking at the picture on this page: wiggle.com | Time RXS Road Pedal Cleats | Pedal Cleats

I can see that it can be adjusted front to back and I know there is a setting for side to side, but considering the two lower bolts don't have any space around them, how is it possible to turn the cleat ?

there's more than enough room for the cleat to pivot. the lower two bolts don't necessarily have to stay parallel to the cleat.

The slots are wider than the shaft of the bolts.

i've had shoes that had bolt threads for the cleats cut into a separate semi-movable plate. it moved a little. might want to take a close look at your shoes.
