Campy Record ProFit pedals and cleat problem. (Doesn't Fit)(9 posts)

Campy Record ProFit pedals and cleat problem. (Doesn't Fit)REZA
Sep 12, 2002 10:49 AM
Last night bought the Campy ProFit cleats for my Record ProFit pedals. Got home, removed my look cleats and installed the Campy (The grey looking ones) and so far no problem. When tried to clip-in, the cleat seems bit longer than the pedal and couldn't be clipped-in at all!!? The package says it's a Record Profit, the pedals are Record ProFit....So what could be the problem?

Didn't think was that hard to clip-in, so gave it a good try and there is no way those cleats will fit into the pedals! Could I have Chorus pedals with Record written on them? Are the Chorus cleats different from Record cleats?

Did I need the metal plate? even going form a Sidi shoe fitted with Look cleats and the fact that the holes and the surface space is the same!!! Will screw surface make the difference?

Help!!!! :-)

the cleat is made of two parts, a plastic section (tha one you have)
and a metal section.
wont work without both.
yeh. I think that they are called "retaining hooks." you needbill

to spend another $20. Performance has them. Then remember that the replacement cleats are just that -- you need to save the metal retaining hooks and use them with new cleats.

Here is the fine manual in case your pedals did not come with one.

Called multiple LBS and others within 30-40 miles, and there are none in stock. Was told that, US wholesaler is out and will be couple of more weeks before a new shipment comes in and then distributed to shops.
Looked up most web sites (Most sites that everyone seems to know) that I knew and couldn’t find any. Not even the European dealer that I buy stuff from has any.

Let see what the Magic Eight Ball thinks?

They are supposed to come with them in the kit, along with a printed copy of the fine manual.
If they did not, and they were legit retail or mail order (i.e. not second hand), someone stiffed ya.
Too bad, they are great pedals.
Although the Coombes and new Look eggbeaters give me pause...nah, it's an "all Italian" bike, maybe Coombes for the fixie?
Excel has them tooShad
