So when in OZ I learnt why I have not been comfortable on my Specialized Sequoia?
Well, I found out that with the narrow Q Factor of road cranks my feet are too close together with standard road or mountain bike pedals!
So how to fix this?
Some makes, make longer pedal axles (for me this is +6mm per side) which once fitted align my legs and this equals comfort and more control out riding.
I have learnt so much about Body Geometry Fit that I’m still buzzing.
Note: With most mountain bikes the cranks are wider spaced and I have always been much more comfortable on a Mountain Bike, and this is partly why.
