i recently bought a pair of sette epic shoes and some cheapo wellgo pedals. Today i was adjusting the cleat to make my foot position a little more comfortable and apperantly stripped out the female end of the shoe. I didn't think i was turning the cleat bolt that tight, but apperantly i was, is there any way to fix this? I payed $100 for these shoes 5 weeks ago and pricepoint refuses to e-mail me back or give me any phone assistance. Is there anyway i can fix this without having to buy new shoes.

p.s. i actually bought these for my MTB, but bought a new Spech allez this week so i've had them on the road bike.

I though about buying some CB pedals and cleats and gluing the CB cleat bolt in since their cleats work on all their pedals. I can use the same shoe and cleat with eggbeaters for the road bike, and mallets for the MTB.

Most shoes have a backing plate under the footbed of the shoe that has two sets of holes. If yours does, you can take the easy fix and just pull the cleat off and turn the plate around and use the other set of holes. You may need to pull up the footbed to do this. I would mark or make note of the position of the cleat somehow as well so you can return it to it's original position.

If you have a backing plate with a single set of holes, then you'll need to go down to your bike shop and get a new one. Take your shoe with you so they can match it up.

Don't glue anything to anything, not only will it just break off, it will possibly ruin the shoe.

Good luck!

Call your credit card company and see if you can still un-pay Pricepoint? :D
