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

Richey Logic Pro Pedal is "squishy"

Hi. I ride with these pedals on my Fuji Roubaix Pro road bike:




and these shoes:






Two things to note before I provide details of my problems -- First, I have tightened the tension on the pedals a good bit in hopes that this would fix the problems below. This has not worked. Second, I have mounted the cleats to the Geko shoes with the provided screws and nothing else. No spacers, shims etc. This shoe has a beefy off-road sole. Now the details, if I may:

1. I'm feeling like the connection between cleats and pedals is weak at best. When I pull up on the recovery pedal stroke, the pedals come free sometimes without much effort.

2. The other issue is with the left pedal/shoe combination. When I rise out of the saddle to climb and hit the bottom of my downward power pedal stroke, the connection is "squishy" i.e. I can feel the shoe moving/clicking in the pedal and it feels very unstable.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks.

Have you tried using (borrowing) road shoes with the pedals?

Not yet, but I thought that might be the problem, considering the way the cleat is buried in the off-road sole of the ATB shoe. I'll have to look into road shoes.
