The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Pinkbike Editors' Favorite Clipless Shoes
@pmhobson: tell me about a bike fitter that has actually raced as a competitive pro in xc, cyclocross or on the road doing that.

@Joecx: yep, add in that conditioning and the injuriy happens when you're pushing or off the bike.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Pinkbike Editors' Favorite Clipless Shoes
@devinkalt: Would you believe there were even specific shoes too? They had a channel in the sole behind the ball of the foot that seated into the backside of the pedal so that when you tightened the strap you were essentially 'clipped' in.

@panthermodern: Do what feels right. That said, any drastic change in position should be done in small increments to allow the body a time for adaptation to prevent injury. If you're into more gravity and want that mid-foot stability then you're on the right path, but if you want to pedal your bike a lot, then consider slowly moving the cleat forward in small (like 1-2mm max) increments over a period of weeks or more until it's centered under the ball of your foot. You'll get your optimum pedalling efficiency and power by having the cleat directly under the ball of your foot so that you utilize all of the muscle groups in your foot/anke/lower leg in a full pedal rotation.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Pinkbike Editors' Favorite Clipless Shoes
@mikekazimer: and in all fairness, I don't think the PB editors are 'ridiculous', which was a poor choice of words. More so it appears that the reviews lean much more towards gravity than trail/all mtn. It's suprising the consensus on cleat position sacrificing pedalling performance/efficiency over gravity stability. Makes me wonder how much of the veiwing audience understands the difference between the two in regards to cleat positioning, or are they just doing what you guys do because they saw it on Pinkbike? For sure there's a happy medium, and I hope folks spend time figuring theirs out.

@Tormy: alternate facts, but not 'historically' correct.

I think that's just ridiculous too. Why not run flats if you're not going to take advantage of using all the muscle groups in a full pedal stroke. Would be interesting to see achilles injury studies based on the length of time spent riding with celats slammed all the way back.
