    Clipless Adjustment

    No this isn't about going clipless, all ready did that! My questions is about how I should adjust them. I've been noticing on long runs between breaks my right toes starts to fall asleep. Not sure if it's a adjustment thing or a shoe thing but figured I'd asked before just randomly adjusting things. Thanks!

    Toes falling asleep could be a sign of the shoes being too tight or the cleat sitting right on a blood vessel (and stoping the flow).

    Try this - in order:

    1) Ride with the shoes more loose. Don't tighten them as much - if possible.
    2) Move the cleat back, more towards the heal. Go by 5mm steps.
    3) Consider replacing the shoes with a model that has a stiffer sole and is more roomy.
    "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit." - And I agree.
