I recently ordered some Sidi Scarpe Zephyr Cycling Road Shoes.

Absolutely fit perfectly, however I've noticed there is a sliding bar element on the bottom of the shoe and I cant work out what it is for.

I'm going to fit some look delta cleats on them, for use in the velodrome.

Best explanation is it has the standard look cleat holes, 3 main holes in a triangle shape. However there is one vertical slot (about 2cm) in the middle of the 3 holes, that has a sliding mechansism within it, i cant work out what it is for.

Seems that is the Look Memory Eyelet, where you can attach some kind of tab to help get replacement cleats in the same position.

This Keo page seems to have a video on the subject, but I can't view it immediately ...

    That's exactly what it is. The tab should come with your cleats. Once you get your cleats in the correct position you tighten that tab down so when your cleats wear out you don't spend forever trying to realign them.

  • Apologies for the very obvious question but having determined this is a memory eyelet. My look delta cleats do mention on the packaging they can take advantage of this, but no mention of how you actually do it.

  • If the linked video doesn't help, and it isn't obvious (did the cleats come with this magic tab, and can you screw it to the eyelet once the cleats are positioned?) I don't know. My answer was based solely on curiosity and google-fu. Maybe @ThaRiddla or someone else has more concrete help?
