If you think you are drifting Off Topic, trust your instincts and do not do it! Introducing Off Topic threads this way is insidious and grows like a fungus, with members responding and before you know it we have 20 messages all Off Topic! Unacceptable!

From this point on, members introducing an Off Topic subject in a message to this CR list will result in the auto boot!

Mr. Kohl has been kind enough to point out the following:

I loved them, but be warned, that cleat really locks onto your pedal!! Th ere is no float whatsoever and I found that adjustment was very critical. Furthermore, they can be difficult to get out of in a hurry!! I never had that "problem" with Dettos or Vittorias.......

Of course you could always remove a bit of the material I suppose???? And

as Mr. Sachs so often reminds us: YMMV
