Follow on to Knee Savers First Impressions
I have been riding a few months now with Knee Savers and Shorter Cranks and have to say that the results have so far been all positive.
The Knee Savers/Pedal Extenders keep my feet from rubbing the crank arms and give me more ways to position my feet while riding. They also allow a lot more toe out which I seem to need for my right foot.
My Hobbit feet in sandas are wider than any pedal I have ever found except MTB platforms that don’t accept straps. This is strange since my feet are C width.
At first the foot position felt strange but after about a week of riding that feeling disappeared. The wider foot position now feels natural and I like them. However, I would not say that the improvement is dramatic. What I like is that my feet don’t rub the cranks anymore and my right foot seems to be in a more natural toe out position.
A few words of advice if you are thinking of buying:
1. Buy the stainless steel version – the others are hard to keep rust free
2. Take a look at Hot Buy – Pedal Extenders on eBay
3. Buy Shorter Cranks first – they are a much bigger improvement
4. If you have shorter cranks make sure that they are compatible with Knee Savers/Pedal Extenders most are not.
I like Knee Savers/Pedal Extenders and would recommend them for anyone who thinks they need them especially at the eBay price.
