Look "Dynamic Positioners" worth it?(2 posts)

Look "Dynamic Positioners" worth it?jw25
Sep 4, 2001 8:38 AM
I recently picked up a set of Look 357's. I'd thought they'd come with the cleat adjustment tools, but none were included. I've gotten a pretty good setup without them, but the idea of being able to set them up perfectly is pretty appealing.
Has anyone used them, and is it worth tracking some down?
On the same note, does anyone have a pair they no longer need? I'd be happy to pay shipping plus a little extra.
And finally, the 357's are supposed to use the new Delta cleat, but the supplied cleats look just an older set I have. They work fine, but is there a difference between the two?
Thanks for any advice. Jon.

The Dynamic Positioners work well in my opinion but are not a necessity. They seemed to work best when you have an assistant and a stationary trainer.

Whether or not you need to track one down depends on how often you adjust your cleat position (and assumming that all your cleats have the groove to accept the positioner (not all do... especially aftermarket)). Once I set up my cleats... the positioners became those odd bits that sit with other pedal accessories gathering dust... though I'll use them again if I get new cleats and/or shoes...

Dunno 'bout the Delta cleat.

Be the bike.
