The first set of cleats, they lasted forever. In fact, should have changed them a little sooner. So a new set is welcome to hold the feet on a little better. The pedals are not adjustable, the release position is built into the cleats. When they are installed with say cleat "A" on the right it releases at 8 degrees. If cleat "A" is on the left, it releases later, at say 15 degrees.
