In 2008, I am trying to do everything I can to eliminate the hip problem that kept me off of the bike for most of 2007. Here’s my plan:
1. Go back to Power Gripsno more clipless pedals that are more efficient but also seem to put more stress on my hips and knees.
2. Shorter Cranks – my new cranks are 153MM versus the 170MM I was using.
3. I am going back to the traditional sandal that I used for 10 years before switching to shores with cleats for clipless pedals.
For years I have used PowerGrips and the Birkenstock Milano with great comfort. The cork soles on the Milano have given me more comfort while riding than any other sandal I have used. They are very firm but also protect and protect your feet from the pedals.
