Thank you! Gonna give it a shot. Yeah I used to ride with hunting and military boots but the riding boots I got now (AlpineStars CR-6) seem to either be too thick or for now too stiff to go over the pedal.
Just for anyone that had the same issue, I adjusted the pedal and it improved my pedal sensitivity a lot. Definitely recommend if you are having this issue after switching to thicker boots. The dial for the brake light is a bit finicky because of the rubber, a bit annoying to adjust and because of the rubber it can reverse back, so i recommend ridding after the adjustment and afterwards checking if the brake light is still well adjusted.
