    That’s an interesting reference. I know Joe Friel has mentioned this on his blog a couple of times (http://www2.trainingbible.com/joesblog/2007/01/cleat-position.html ) I know of couple people (one in particular) that complain that one of their feet quivers when they weigh it in a turn, after a long ride. Presumably due to muscle fatigue and pressure on a nerve. They said when they moved their cleat back as far as possible the problem was less, but still present. This might be an interesting solution to that problem if this changes how shoes are made.

    Now then Andrew,
    would you care to tell us, now, seven years after the announcement, whether Max Testa's study has ever been published and what his resumé is?

    As best as I can tell, the study mentioned in the CyclingNews piece has never been published (at least not in any journal abstracted by PubMed, that is).

    Testa does, however, now have at least one peer-reviewed publication to his name:

    Of course not, that's what I imagined in the first place when it was announced. Thanks anyway, Andrew.
