Looking for some help here:
After years of discomfort, I switched out my 3yr old Sidi MTB shoes for a new pair of Shimano XC901s. Even after a marathon stage race, my feet felt great - whereas normally I’m in pain 2hours into a 4 hour ride. So I took the plunge and bought some Shimano RC901s to replace my Sidi road shoes.
My new shoes are supposed to come in a couple of days, but I’ve already got new cleats ready for them. The problem is that my bike fitter changed my MTB shoe cleats (because I also was getting my new MTB fit) and I won’t have that luxury for my new road shoes (I could - but not for the next 3 weeks at least because of work).
So, I was hoping that maybe some of you could point me in the right direction on how to do this change. The shoes are pretty different, but I’m at least in the position where I don’t need to remove the cleats off the old shoes, so I can used them as a guide. Any tips, tricks or tutorials you guys would recommend consulting?
Thanks for any help - last time I put on a new pair of cleats on shoes when getting rid of my Speedplays resulted in a sore knee and a trip to the bike fitter, so I’m hoping to re-avoid this experience.
