    Shoe cleats

    Hi, everyone!
    Is it normal that the cleats from my pedals in my shoes touch slightly the ground when I'm walking? It mus be no more than 2 mm.
    I have Shimano MT60 shoes and my cleats are crank bros. candy's.
    I'm new to clipless!
    Thanks beforehand!

    he he. I'm waiting for 20 people to confirm that it is indeed normal and one guy to say it isn't and a whole debate will ensue.

    ...or maybe it won't.

    But I'll be the 1st person to confirm Invicta's answer.

    YES, it is indeed normal as Invicta above has noted.

    normal.....

    but too much clippity-clop on pavement in bike shoes is a root cause erectile dysfunction...male patterned baldness...and an unhealthy obsession mixing poodles with other breeds creating monstrosities like labradoodles....pug-a-poos....schnoodles....etc...etc....

    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    I didn't read any of the other posts, especially not captainjoon's, but it's not normal at all. You should be able to walk on hardwood floors without scuffing them in mountain bike shoes. If you can't, you're practically in roadie shoes.

    My shoes as I mentioned before are Shimanos SH-MT60 and my cleats are Crank Brother's for some Candy pedals, now, I had to place the extra shim on the sole of the shoes and still sand off some sole of the shoe to get the shoe to clip on without the sole of the shoe interfering with the peddals. (This made clipping and unclipping really hard)
    What else can I do to avoid having my cleats to far out and avoiding them to rub while I'm walking???

    Take the shims out and use a utility knife or Dremel Tool and remove the rubber around the cleat where it interferes with your pedals while unclipping.
