Spoiling the ship for a ha'porth of tar


48 minutes, three Dremel multi cutting discs, one Dremel grinding bit, one singed finger and several choice swear words later I have finally removed my brand new Crank Brothers cleat and moved it to the correct position.

And all because they specced bolts made out of cheese, rather than the more usual steel. Probably saving themselves 0.7p in the process. So thanks, Crank Brothers.
