Was hoping for some advice/input here...
My xtr970 pedals are about 5 years old as my shimano mtn bike shoes are. Time for new shoes and pedals right? So I bought the xtr980 pedals and new shimano mtn bike shoes (SH-M088). Despite the larger contact patch of the 980s, my shoe tread did not have good contact with the pedals so my feet dont' feel stable. I got rid of the 980s and went back to my 970s. These feel a bit more stable but not much. I don't want to get new shoes as I just got these. Any advice on how to make this feel a bit more stable? I was thinking of spreading a very thin layer of some type of liquid rubber on either the shoe tread or pedal body to take up some slack. Any advice greatly appreciated...thanks, matt
I just thought that maybe it's the cleat. My new cleats are SH-51...old cleats are SH-56. I will get some new SH-56 cleats and see if that snugs things up at all...
