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

shimano spd-sl

Just a question for spd-sl users. I have tried three pairs of shoes now, and lots of cleat manipulation. For some reason it still feels like I am pedaling on my toes. Is this a feature of these pedals? Is there a system that will put the pedal axle further back on my foot? Or I just trying to use some poor technique?

Pedal axle should be centered over the ball of your foot. You can certainly adjust the fore/aft position of the cleat to achieve this. If it's there already, give it some time to get used to.
