    wearing out shoes w/eggbeaters

    Has anyone else had the problem of "divots" being created in the shoe due to the pedal?

    No

    ,but I cut out some of the sole of the shoe to allow the pedals freedom to move, they don't touch any part of the shoe, just the cleat.

    or used the shims to raise the cleat.

    Yes, I have had the same issue. A buddy told me of a fix that I have done and it works perfectly. If you have any of those very thin metal plates that are made for the inside of the shoe, take them and put them in between the cleat and the shoe. That way I am wearing on a cheap metal plate rather than my expensive carbon soles. It has worked very well.

    Don't any of you guys get hotfoot from resting on that tiny little cleat? I rode some Eggbeaters for about 2 1/2 hours yesterday and started to feel something and on longer rides I start to feel some pain. And I think that's with my shoe resting on the bars, is that better or worse? I can tell you with the Candy bar wear isn't an issue, you just have to use a shim so your rubber cleats won't interfere with the platform too much.
