I'd ask the man myself but I'd need to purchase a membership.
Anyway, it was time for new cleats so I figured I'd give his method a try. I went with method #1 and with my cleats slammed all the way forward, my BOF is 28mm in front of the pedal axle. I was hoping for ~10mm...
I'm using Pearl Izumi shoes at the moment which he states will cause problems for this method, but a full 28mm? Missing the mark by such a large margin makes me feel like I missed a step more than solely a shoe problem, but maybe I'm just in denial.
Are the mounting holes on Sidi, Shimano, Specialized, Lake, etc. significantly closer to the toe to correct this?
This is with SPD-SL cleats and 5700 pedals.
