Sidi Genius 3, Replacement Heel?(7 posts)

Sidi Genius 3, Replacement Heel?BQ
Jul 9, 2001 9:07 AM
If you have Sidi Genius 3 shoes, you might want to pull out a phillips screwdriver and tighten the screws. I lost my heel over the weekend, so now I walk with a limp. :-(

Any idea where I can get a replacement without having to buy a whole shoe?

I had the same problem: lost the heel pad after about a week. I got a new set at Excel Sports for $7.

The first time it was after only two or three rides. I asked my shop to get Sidi to replace it for free and they did, however a month ago, I lost the second one.

From now on, I'm going to put locktite on the threads.

... lost mine right at the beginning of a ride... and actually found the screw!!! As soon as I got home, I Blue Loctite'd both... and have had no problems since.

Be the bike.

Darned good idea. I'm gonna do that, too, once the replacement parts arrive. Thanks!

for the incredibly quick reference to Excel. As usual, this board has solutions!

Seeing that this has happened to others, I don't feel quite so foolish. Alas, that ill can't be wholly cured. When I attached the cleats, it didn't even dawn on me to tighten the screw in the heel. (Forehead slap, Doh!) What the heck was I thinking???
