Can some one advise me in stupid terms what the difference is in the floating and not floating cleats? I currently have the Yellow ones, the floating ones, and need to replace them. What difference would I find if I got the red ones?

    Float allows a little bit of side to side twist movement. Unless you want to have your feet rigidly held then go for the ones with float. They'll be a lot more comfortable and by all accounts better for your knees.

    Having said that, some people do prefer the non-float type.

    Float is what most people use, thats the norm.

    Non floating are harder to set up as they must be spot on. If you had no problem with floating then stick with them.
