How to Install Cycling Cleats
Whether you’re new to clipless pedals or you’ve been clipping in for years, installing new cycling cleats can be intimidating. And rightfully so – when you’re riding a bike, the position of your foot on the pedal is one of only three contact points between you and your bike (the other two being your saddle and handlebars). It’s important that your cleat is in the right place when pedaling because that’s where your power transfers to the bike. If your cleat placement isn’t quite right, it could reduce the amount of power you’re transferring to the pedal by not allowing you to recruit the optimal muscle groups. Not only could that affect your speed and efficiency, it could also cause discomfort or even injury!
Let’s not let that happen. Here’s how to install cycling cleats in clip-in cycling shoes.
