Dan: Congratulations on the Dettos , , , from my experience the long TA cleats can be difficult to install and stay put once nailed, and might be best nailed on by a shoe repairman who has the repair last, proper nails etc. . . , , , also, , I'm assuming you acquired the older Dettos with leather soles and steel shank which would be more appropriate for the long TAs, , , I came accross a bike web site that had older cleats, even the TA touring leather ones, , I'll search old haunts, and forward to you if I come accross it . . . . . . regards, , , Tom Roberson, Reston, VA
