BIG pots of tea with Bacon(egg for Steve)and cake at the same pub as the other week for all in price.

Can we include the bit we cut out today, the bit that goes north from Wanswell through Hinton on to Purton then turns south ?

We go up the one that we came down and were being baulked by the horsebox.It's not so steep but does go on a bit.

PS Rang pub, tea, cake and Bacon sarnies ordered
It's the same Pub we went to couple of weeks a go Where there was a tray of cakes to fight over.

With the way my knee has been playing up the last two weeks I'll be happy for a gentle one.

John - have you got speedplay pedals as I'm thinking of going that way to see if that helps with my knee issue. Question I have is whether to go for the X or Zero series. From what I can tell one has free float and the other is adjustable?

Currently using SPD cleats with Shimano PD A520 pedals. The shoes(Shimano MO77 MTB)I have will only accept the SPD cleat so I will also need to invest in a new pair of road shoes. My thoughts at the moment are Shimano RO87 road shoe with the Speedplay pedals.

Ok I will see how it goes.I am out with the OG&G on Thursday so might drop them into Mrs Areobully after ride.but i will dro you a text if I do so. I have fitted the Keo cleats to the shoes but only loosely ready for you to position the cleats where you want them .Might be worth speaking the the Knee Guru John regarding the setting up.I trust you have a large allen key to fit the pedals?and a smallish one for tightening the cleats.

You'd want the Zero's in Speedplays, although I'm a fan I would say they aren't an instant fix for any knee issues though. Have you always had knee problems cycling or just the last couple of months? If you've not changed your position or upped your miles then I'd see a physio that understands cycling before I'd invest in new shoes/pedals, especially as your problem seemed ITB-related which I think is one of the easier issues to treat.

Not sure what trying Keo's will do for you either, they're probably the same float as your SPDs.

I do have a second set of Speedplay zeros and spare cleats I could loan you for a few weeks if you did seriously start looking at them (and if you bought some just give me the brand new cleats from your set). Shoes-wise it might be worth trying Scott's, although I have spare 45's they're pretty tight and very ventilated so not great at this time of year :p

Edited to correct numpty moment :-)

@Mark ... Zero's and light actions with R087w ... :-)

Yes Zero's are adjustable for heel in / out, light action's are not - but the cleats
are interchangeable - light-action pedals with Zero cleats works fine !!!!

As Nick says Keo's with grey cleats offer the same amount of float as
the spd's do, the main difference is the size of the "contact" patch
your foot has.

What sort of knee pain and where ??

Are X's adjustable? I thought the only difference between Zeros and X's were the Zeros had the heel-in/out limit adjustment on the float and the X's didn't?

I have X's they are not adjustable for float. They do, however, have an extra 5 degrees of float ; having 20 degrees instead of Zeros' 15..... I have a dodgy knee and find these all but eliminate any pain from it. 20 miles with spd's left me with a sore knee every time!

Not sure who to respond to first?

I've had a problem with the knee over the last few weeks and I'm going to see a phisio next week. I'd heard that the Speedplays were good for knee issues due to the amount of float. I'm want to get some new road shoes and move away from the SPD so I thought I'd make the change in one go. I guess I could get my new shoes and trial the combinations from Scott and Nick and see how I go.
