jwsknk:
topher, sounds like either not enough “float” or cleat angle was set wrong. Did the professinal fitting address those ( I assume they would) or just bike fit? (stem height, length, angle, seat palcement and height)

I had the full fit done through the BG system. It was one 4 hour session and two follow up hours. My pedals and clips were adjusted multiple times to no avail.

In my research I’ve found a number of other more experienced riders who also are opting for flats.

I have no angst for anyone who enjoys their SPD’s but am glad I personally got past the idea that if I’m not clipped in then I’m not a serious rider.
