Quick cleat placement question -(4 posts)

Quick cleat placement question -BowWow

Are you more comfortable/powerful with the pedal spindle directly under the ball of the foot, or is it better slightly behind the spindle?
I put the cleat as far back on the shoe as possible.dzrider

That puts the ball of the foot forward relative to the spindle. It's done entirely for comfort.

Depends.

If you're spinning, then either just behind the spindle or right over it is better. If you're mashing, then a little further behind is better.

Then again, its all personal preference.
