different leg length solution

Postby bradwoodbr » Thu Oct 02, 2008 1:05 am

My right leg is 30mm shorter than my left and I want to experiment evening out my pedalling by building the right cleat up about 15mm.

Has anyone done this and/or can recommend a shop/product/ or method of creating the wedges of say 5mm thickness?
Also where would I be able to get longer cleat screws?

Thanks any a help greatly appreciated.

I suppose you could try some sort of plastic washers between the shoes and the cleats?

Contact Steve Hogg as he sells shims for most cleat designs.
