Maybe your saddle is the wrong shape and it’s cutting off circulation to your feet?


BexxDaMaster

Maybe, I will look that up too. Thank you!

All of the previous suggestions and Check how tight your shoes are. Believe it or not tight laces can cut off circulation.


BexxDaMaster

Yeah, I have loosen up the shoe laces but my feets still falls asleep. But I will look up my sadel and what I can do about that. Thank you!

You need a seat adjustment


BexxDaMaster

Oh, yeah maybe, I will look that up! Thanks!

I had the same issue and tried changing my bike fit, cleat position, etc. didn’t work. I purchased new insoles and that solved the problem right away. Check if you have high arches since you could be putting more pressure on certain parts of your foot


BexxDaMaster

I haven't thought about that, it may be so, I will check that. Thank you!

If your toes go numb first. Easiest check is to move the clips/cleats back a little.(away from toes). And check shoe tightness laces/boa/buckle Ride a few times. Next I would check saddle position. And these are many things to check here. If the groin as pressure. Seat could be to narrow or younneed to push the saddle forward.


BexxDaMaster

Yeah, i have moved the clips 2 or 3 times thinking that was the problem. Maybe it's the saddle, position or the saddle is not a good fit for me. I will try some things and see if it works. Thanks for the answer!

Metatarsal bump in my insoles fixed it for me. Icebug brand insoles are perfect for me.


BexxDaMaster

I will check that, thank you!

Numb feet or hot spots after 1-2 hours of pedalling? 1. Cleat positioning 2. Your feet swell when you warm up. More so in the summer. If you over tighten your shoe, it can cause numbness. Loosen them slightly.


BexxDaMaster

I have loosen them, I get pain underneath my feet when I run if I have tighten the shoes too much. But I will look up my position och the bike, see if that is the problem or if I need a new saddle?


ExistentialTVShow

No it's not the saddle. Saddle pains normally come from other problems. Your saddle might be too high, but it's not normally the saddle type. It's possible you have wide feet? 1. bring your cleats are far back as they will go. 2. sit on a table and let your feet hang loose, see which way the point naturally, adjust cleats to give yourself a natural pedalling technique.


BexxDaMaster

Yes, I have wide feet for a woman, I buy men's shoes often because of it. 1. I have moved them back as far as I can. 2. Okey, I'll try that! Thank you!


ExistentialTVShow

There are wide cycling shoes available. So what happens for people who have wide feet is that they buy a bigger shoe to accommodate their wide feet. The wide part is fixed but the toes and shoe volume is too big, so they tighten the shoe as much as they can to help that. Then the shoe loses balance because some parts are tight (may restrict circulation), but other parts are loose. The cleats are also too far forward for the foot size because it's a bigger shoe and you've already put them as far back as the shoe lets them. I hope that helps you understand


BexxDaMaster

Yeah, I think I understand. Thank you for your answer!
