    Cleat Receptacle Plate Movable on S-Works 6 XC MTB Shoe?

    Does anybody know? It seems that the cleat receptacle is fixed. Although the receptacle has two sets of holes, is the cleat receptacle supposed to be able to slide fore-aft of the shoe? Thanks.

    The product page says the following but not sure what it means:

    • Titanium alloy cleat nuts can rotate to position pedal/cleats 5mm rearward.

    My interpretation of that bullet point is that you spin the plate 180 degrees to move the bolt holes back or forward and that the plate is otherwise fixed...but I don't know that for a fact.
    Do the math.

    I have those exact shoes.

    On mine, the plate is fixed and has two sets of holes, as you have described. It does not move fore and aft. It seems to be affixed quite solidly to the inside of the sole.

    I have absolutely no idea what the excerpt above from the product page means. None. Mine have no titanium alloy cleat nuts, let alone ones that can rotate to position pedals/cleats 5mm rearward. That is some serious marketing bullshit right there.

    Are the holes offset? If so, reversing the plate would reposition the holes.

    Unlike other shoes I have owned, the plates appear to be fixed in place. In terms of a cross section, it goes in this order...sole, plate, an inner sole that is stitched in place over top of the plate, and a removable sole. I donít know how you could reverse the plate without doing major surgery on the shoe ó something I am not about to do. I am scared shitless to wear them, let alone take a knife to them.

    Oh. Well, that won't work!
