Is it necessary to use shorter screws when attaching the time front and rear cleats to the sidi time adaptor plate. The screws that came with the cleats are so long that they hit the bottom of my Sedi Genius 4 shoes affecting the float when riding.

Anyone else have this problem? If so, what did you do.

you can use some spacers or shorter screws.
don't worry because it happens the same with others shoes. I had the same problem with my DMT's and with Sidi Genius4.
I have been two months without training, and for begining I have decided to give a chance to Time pedals. it has been a pain because my left knee doesn't work well with them.
I'll try to wait two or three months until I try them again, because my knees are a bit rusty. for those who are used to Look it is a big difference. mutch better and mutch and different.

Thanks for responding. It's good to hear that I'm not the only one with this problem. I wish you a speedy recovery. Funny thing, my left leg has never really felt comfortable with either Look or Time pedals. I don't have any pain and will continue with Times. You may want to consider Speedplay pedals. Maybe they'd work better for you. Good luck.

I think it happens sometimes, because legs don't have the same lenght and feet don't have the same angle. I had a similar problem, that was more visible with Time, but when I stop for two or three weeks even the saddle gives me problems, shifters don't work....
the problem is that there is no standards in bike industry.
good training.
