    Slips out

    Over the last couple rides, I've noticed my right cleat slipping out of my pedal very easily. I want to say this started rather quickly And not gradually over a long period of time. I have spd equipment. Tension screws on pedal are tight and so are the screws on the cleat. I can't see anything abnormal on anything. Any idea why the cleat slips out so easily?
    Thanks
    Luke, this is your father's lightsaber. I cut him in 1/2 to get it.

    You need new cleats. They are a wear item.

    I had exactly the same issue. New cleats didn't help. I got new pedals last week (1/2 price) but haven't put them on yet.

    I'd try new cleats first, though.

    Well, if it's not the cleats XT pedals are pretty dang cheap these days. Even XTR has come down considerably in price and can be found for less than $100. The main difference, besides price and weight, is one is made in Japan and the other Taiwan.

    So I switched the cleats on the shoes I E right to left left to right, and the right pedal is still giving me problems. At this point I'm assuming it's the pedal ? Dang it, hopefully I can still make Santas Christmas list before it's too late.
