Trouble with Dura-Ace pedals!(3 posts)

Trouble with Dura-Ace pedals!Mr_Grim2

I spent more than $400 bucks on Shimano's new shoe/pedal combo this season and so far... I'm sorely dissapointed!

The R214 shoes are great! But I have absolutely NO confidence when clipping in!

I have a hard time finding the pedal with my cleat.. and then an even harder time engauging the pedal. I have to mash and twist in all sorts of directions to clip in.

Anyone else have this kind of trouble? Can anyone advise on how to fix it?

I had the same problems (with Sidi shoes) and gave up and went with Campi and now ride with a smile on my face. The only downside with the Campi system is that the cleats wear quickly so limit walking on them.

Grease the rubber guides on the shoes - as well as the mating surfaces of the pedals. Make sure you adjust the rubber stopper on the pedal properly. Key to clipping in is to locate gently - then clip in with a slight twist horizontally.
