Toe overlap can also be related to toe/foot anatomy. I have relatively long big toes for the size of my feet (think size 10+ toes on a size 9 foot). My cleats are generally mounted fairly far back to position the center of the peddles under the balls of my feet. I have overlap even on a Santana (off topic) tandem, but it has never been a problem if we're moving more than 3 mph.

Lynn, Bob et al.. Interesting hearing your experiences... i too have had this problem,but like Dale says, its a situation that does not often occur in real life riding, that said, i have in the past fitted guards to race bikes of early 80's [close clearance] which were without mudguard brase ons and i can say that you need to have your wits on alert if riding in town or where you must swerve around.
