Hi, I'm Denise Druce a fitness instructor in Salt Lake City, Utah. Let's look at how to put SPD clips into cycling shoes. So an SPD clip looks like this, it's almost to me looks like a spade in a deck of cards and it's the clip that is recessed into the bottom of the shoe, that allows you to clip into a pedal. These are commonly used with outdoor cycling and now a lot of indoor cycling is done with these SPD clips. So you can check with your local bike shop they're usually really helpful to fit you and put these on properly, but if you're doing it yourself, let me just show you the easy way to do it. So when you get your shoe if it doesn't already have the clips in, it will look like this, there are four holes in the bottom. I always start by putting the clips in the front two holes and just see how that feels to my knee and so you'll just take your clip and it has two holes in it and you'll line those up with the two front holes and then you have two screws that go in place and all you need to do is just tighten those down with an Allen wrench. Make sure that as you get the clip tightened that you, that it's straight. So a common complaint is that when these clips are angled even just a little bit it can start to cause you a lot of knee pain to one side or the other so make sure that when you get these tightened down that your clip is pointing straight forward. And again check in with the cycling shop if you have any questions. I'm Denise Druce for more fitness tips, please visit my website.
