Probably no amount of fiddling with the cleat setting will help; there is a reason why the default cleats are the ones with the most float.


Yep, because most people don’t understand fitting.

i actually thought about that but they are both secured tightly to the soles.

Just worn?

The cleats i've just changed - LH completely b++++++d, RH not looking too bad, LH was floating all over the place and even self releasing. New cleats today, feet hardly moving, knee pain which had been building over last couple of weeks, gone! My knee pain was caused by too much float rather than insufficient.
