|Campy Pro-Fit Cleats||Monte2|

|I just got a set of Record Pro-fits and went for my first 30 mile ride. After a few stoplights, stops to chat with people and general milling around, I came home and examined the plastic part of the cleat. Wow. After a single ride, it looks like I have been skiing on cement. The back of the cleat is quite worn. I just dumped nearly $200.00 on pedals and it looks like at this rate, I'll need to replace the cleat before the end of the month. Anyone using a different Look-style cleat that wears better? Any suggestions?|

|You can't use Look (or any other) cleats with ProFit - only Campy. Look at the cleats and you'll see why. I don't walk around on my cleats (use cleat covers) except in the garage and driveway getting ready for a ride and when putting my foot down at lights/stop signs. I'm on my second pair of ProFit cleats - the first lasted 20K+ miles.|

|Unfortunately, nothing else works, and nobody else makes a substitute.
I get about 1,500 miles out of a pair before they start intefering with a proper release, even though they start looking bad way before that.
By the way, you'll only need to replace the plastic parts. About $15.

|I have a pair of Daytona Pro-Fit pedals (same cleats) with a little over 1,000 miles, and while they look awful on the bottom, I haven't had any problems engaging/disengaging.
As I favor my right foot when stopping at streetlights, I swap the cleats left-to-right every 500 miles or so to increase the longevity of the plastic. I would highly recommend some cleat covers when walking around.

|The Look ones don't fit... I'm all ears.|

|I use Look style Kool Kovers. I had to cut the tab at the back (wide) part of the cover, and they fit tightly, but after a few uses they stay on.
It's not a perfect fit, and I would hope to see Campy-specific covers out soon as the Campy pedals become more commonplace.

|Replacements get expensive. Good point below about only getting the plastic part. The first time I had to make a replacement I just ordered cleats from my shop - $40! It was the whole thing: bolts, metal cleat, plastic tongue. Keep in mind that a new pair of Daytonas can be had - cleats included - for $75. All I needed was the plastic part. Those are $12.
Still, I think they are great pedals. I've even got a pair on my track bike. You can crank up the tension so high it's like strapping in.
