Speedplay zero cleats

Amazing cleat story here – after two and a half years and at least 25,000 miles I had to replace my speedplay zero cleats this morning. I knew that there was a problem about a week ago when the right cleat was loose even with the tension screws closed all the way down. It turns out that I had sheered off a plastic tab that helps hold the locking mechanism in place. It’s hard to tell in the blurry picture, but you can wiggle the locking mechanism with your hand even though it’s supposed to be secure. So today I installed a replacement cleat, and I thought the warning message was hilarious in light of the miles that I had on the shoe. It says to replace the cleat every 5,000 miles! Mine lasted 5x longer than that! Tonight’s the Charlotte Criterium (Presbyterian Invitational) and I’ll be posting my race report sometime tomorrow – hoping to get more points in the USA crits series to keep my top 10 standing (I’m currently 7th by 1 point).

A little bit more challenging than normal getting this angle of my bike at the cliffs today. Opposing views, top from AL-25, middle from Co Rd 41 looking towards double oak, and the last from double oak way looking back towards AL-25. Cleared it yesterday, but got stuck at this spot today. Since I was already unclipped I decided to take some pics of the trail. If anyone is interested in trying it, the current line is right, middle, left, middle.
