    Look Keo adjustment (side)

    I have a knockoff brand (cheap) Look Keo pedals. I noticed one side had a little more play than the other, w/o coming off. I tightened the main tension adjustment and that seemed to cure it and even them out, but I notice another small allen adjustment on the side, what is that for?

    No idea. There is only one adjustment on Look pedals. Are you talking about the pivot bushing for the tail piece?

    Please post a photo. Sounds like a rotational adjustment screw.

    I noticed one of my cleats "loose" compared to the other one, I wasn't popping out but I had what seemed like float I didn't need. Note: I have only used black cleats so I don't what float feels like. I see when I turn this with the allen that there is another allen hole on the other side that turns too. Maybe it is just to take cleat apart. Never the less, I tightened the adjustment on the top and that seemed to take care of the loose feeling cleat.

    Could you take any worse photos?

    That's the pivot for the tail piece of the pedal. When you clip in that piece moves backwards and then clips over the back of the cleat. Should be very obvious from just looking at the pedal. It is NOT an adjustment of any kind.

    While I wouldn't be so blunt, I have to agree. I can't even tell the photos are of pedals, or cleats.

    Yeah, but the plastic chair and what looks like a broom leaning against the wall are as clear as a bell.

    probably not. but i figured you guys with +10,000 posts are so smart you could figure this out with only the slightest glimpse. It was cold in my garage last night, probably should redo in sunlight.

    I could go with that. When I study the pedal I see there is another one on the other side. And when I turn one, the one on the other side turns, so I guess if you lock on still, and reverse the other one, something comes apart.
