|Anybody's right LOOK-style cleat coming loose and shifting?||filly|

|With right-handed threads on the right shoe, every time you kick your heel out to release, you are stressing the fixing screws in the counter-clockwise (loosening) direction. The left cleat is fine--you actually tighten the bolts when unclipping. Is LOCTITE the answer?|

|All the more reason to unclip with the left at lights, stop signs, etc... (I always find it interesting which foot people choose- I'd rather have my "strong" leg already clipped in).
It is a delicate issue- I've stripped the threads on the bolt sleeves on a shoe- ONCE -and was not happy. It was not easily repaired.

|Another reason to unclip your left foot is because your
chainring is on the right hand side. By doing that you
avoid the all-too-familiar slickmark on your right calf.

|Mine is my right and I don't have any trouble with Look cleats or chain ring tattoos. Have thought of getting a real tattoo of a chainring dripping blood.|

|I naturally tend to unclip my right foot, but I make a point to mix it up and unclip either foot during the course of each ride. I figure it's good practice for an emergency stop when I may not have the luxury of time to get my "preferred" foot into a decent position to clip out.|
