Attaching the shoes to the pedal by hand worked but was very difficult. Guess I will add a shim. Thanks.I actually double shimmed my Specialized 2FO Cliplites to work perfectly with my Crankbrothers Mallet E and DH pedals. For you, try adding a single shim for each shoe and see if it works. You can also try attaching the shoe to the pedal without wearing it too. Doing that will let you see how the cleats are engaging into the pedal.
If you do need to double shim, you may need to order extra shims seeing the pedal kit only comes with a single shim for each shoe.
All the Crank Bros I've used need the shims. The only shoe/cleat combo I've used that work perfectly without shims or trimming is the Shimano ME7 with Shimano clipless pedals.Attaching the shoes to the pedal by hand worked but was very difficult. Guess I will add a shim. Thanks.
Thanks man.I use the same shoes. As other have said you need shims. Alternatively, give the stainless steel shoe shields a try. They will do the same thing as shims but also give a better feel to clipping in and out and prevent the clip mechanism from wearing out the bottom of your shoe.
I've only been on clips for 2 months. I use the Crank Brothers Mallet E pedals. I found that getting the 10* release cleats was also pretty helpful but that is to aid in getting OUT of the pedals, not in.
Please don't take this the wrong way, but I would hate to see you spend more money that is wasted. That shoe and pedal combo work, so you must be doing something wrong.Now I am frustrated, still cannot clip in even with shims. Something I am not getting.
Any reco's for easy-to-clip in pedals under $100?
