Speedplay X/2 + SIDI - Look Adapter Plates Y or N?(2 posts)

Speedplay X/2 + SIDI - Look Adapter Plates Y or N?trout_bum

I've got Speedplay X/2 + SIDI Dynamics

Do I use SIDIs included Look adapter plates?

Does the Speedplay cleat 3 hole plate w/ SIDI snap shims replace the Look adapter plate and fit into the depression in sole of shoe?

I get the impression that both ways will work-is there a preferred method.
Thanks.

I've just gone through the same process myself. You should use the Speedplay shim only (and in my case, I had to file down the edges of the cleat to fit the soles of my G3s). The logic is that you want to keep the stack height as low as possible (tranlation, the closer your foot to the pedal the better since there is less loss of power transfer). Hope this helps.
