Is there an adjustment on speedplay cleats to limit the range of float?I cant disengage at the top of my pedal stroke since my knee can't move the required distance at that point.I'd appreciate any info.
thanks
Lou

THere are newer speedplays which may or may not be available yet that do have adjustable float. As for the current models, the float is not adjustable. Getting out takes a little practice. I usually disengage at 3:00 or 9:00.

You don't need to rotate your foot out to the maximum float position to release. I just move my ankle out a bit and roll my foot off all in one quick move. I have weak knees and need very little pressure to disengage (that is after I got the right cleat on the right shoe).
