i have tried moving my cleats (re "cleat position" thread), but im finding out one problem.
the ball of my foot on my "big toe" side seems to sit just infront of the pedal axle, but my "little toe" side seems to be just behind!!!

why is this? my feet are "level" in the pedals, ie im not "bambi legged!" is this normal or is my set up gone wrong!?

also, i have now got a slight toe overlap on the front wheel. is this a problem?

    So are you saying that the ball of your feet angles backwards at say 30 degrees??

    I'd recommend stopping wearing pointy high heeled shoes!m [;)]

    Hi Ian
    Sit on the edge of a table and let your feet dangle and relax. See what angle they are in their natural "rested" position. Try and replicate on the bike.
    Ball of toe approx over the pedal spindle as a start point.

    Toe-overlap with occurs with some bikes more than others. Not a big problem, you'll soon get used to it. I have it on my old fixie where it should be more of an issue because ypu cannot free-wheel when turning, but it's never been a problem.
