    Vertical Play in SPD Pedals

    I have a pair of M520's paired with a SH-51 cleats. I have vertical play in the pedals, not float left to right but up down movement that makes a clicking/rattling sound when pedaling.

    Anyway to fix this or is something just worn out?

    Hmmm, the information that would be helpful here is age/ mileage of the pedals and the same for the cleats. For the price of a set of cleats I would go there first. My XTR Trail pedals donít feel up and down loose.

    Cleats are brand new...pedals - at least a few years, they have miles. Shoes are brand new too.

    I've had that from time to time, seems to be more dependent on my shoe?

    Something I can think of to check if the space between cleat and shoe is clean. Then ensure cleat bolts are torqued to spec.
