Hi all,
Been lurking a while but first post.

Been away from bikes for around 10 years and just got a rockhopper pro to get back in to it.

I use to ride with spuds for xc type stuff and have just got some cb mallets.
Reason for choosing them was the float. I have a right knee that ain't what it use to be.

Any tips on how to get them set right?
My right foot tends to step out penguin style so with the ball of my foot on a pedal my heel nearly hits the crank, that's my comfy position.
I'm having problems getting the cleats right and would appreciate some help with it.

I have some five tens on the way and will get some flats for using with them but for commuting and gentle trails I would really like to get the mallets fitting good.

Sit on a bench and allow your feet to dangle freely and take note of your toe angle,then set the cleat accordingly.

That's kind of what I did but it just doesn't feel right. Have tried small changes but can't quite get it.
Will see how tomorrow's ride goes but maybe the gaffer tape trick may help, only just remembered that.
