Carnac Adaptor Plate Problems(2 posts)

Carnac Adaptor Plate Problemssoup
Dec 19, 2002 11:05 AM
I've got an old but comfortable pair of Carnac Legends that I have had SPDs on for 5+ years. I'm switching to Speedplays and need to swap the adaptor plates.

Problem: some of the "sheaths" (for lack of a better term) into which the screws insert are loose-- when I try to loosen the screw, the sheath just turns in the shoe and the screww will not back out.

Any ideas on how to get the adaptor plates off and still be able to attach the Speedplay adaptor?

Thanks,

soup

You'll have to pull out the insole and then you'll be able
to get to the recessed nut. I had the same problem and fixed it no problem. I hope this helps.
