    New pedal is loose

    I recently bought some Shimano PD-M770 pedals. One side fits great. But the other side rattles around. It happens a couple of times a minutes, typically when I'm climbing, especially at the start of a climb.

    It's not my cleats. I've checked them. They're are snug.

    Adjusting the spring tension seem to matter.

    Thoughts?

    Are they set to the same spring tension on both pedals and on both sides of each pedal?

    Yep.

    I've tried them on the tightest setting and mid range.

    Still loose.

    Just one side.

    Old shoes? If the shoes are worn the sole/pedal contact can be different on each shoe.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
