    You can get them online. I bought them where I bought my bike and they were only 19.99. Online I see them around 40.00 I think. Don't know the difference - perhaps online they are higher quality...

    They come in three sizes. I bought the smallest - 20mm. Basically, you just take off the pedal and put this steel 20mm spacer onto the crank arm and then screw the pedal to that. It is very strong. I...

    I was about to return the bike. The toe overlap was really debilitating. I was working through it with the shop who sold it to me. He was awesome and ready to do whatever it took to get me in the...

    Wow, 20" wheels. I'll have to google Bike Friday! I've never been aware of it on my road bike - but like you say, I never turn sharply. It seems unfair that smaller cranks are so un-standard. I...

    Yes, I am calling my bike guy today to discuss. The crank is 170mm - I think I can easily get away with a 155 or 160 - I'm only 5'4". Plus, the tires are 700x34. I guess you're supposed to have 32 or...

    I really like it. I've been out a few times. My only beef is the toe overlap - which is getting in my head a bit. I've never experienced it before. Didn't really know it existed. Is this common? My...

    New Bike!

    My new cross bike is here! Decided to go with the Trek/Gary Fisher Erwin - 50cm. Trying to keep the cost down. Was able to try it out real quick on Wed. Fit feels great. Ride was a blast - I have...
