Hi guys, what brands have their cleat holes far forward? I have Giro Empires now, but my cleats should be 1,7cm more forward in size 40. The distance from the heel to first hole should be 17cm. Can anyone please help? I'm considering custom drilled Bont or Gaerne or S-Phyre?

17mm further on a size 40? That'd be close to putting the cleats under your toes on most shoes wouldn't it?

I just did a rough measurement and 17cm heel to bottom holes on a size 40 (about 25cm long) would put the forward cleat nut under the top of the middle toe.
