Many a year ago, I recall a thread/discussion on lfgss led by an old chap who was like the British equivalent of Gary Fisher, a pioneer of British off road riding before mountain bikes existed and they were using 27inch wheeled bikes.
Anyhow, this chap had made some of his own pedals which had an offset design. As in, the pedal was offset from the point it attached to the crank arm. There was some discussion where he explained how it was more biomechanically optimal.
Does anyone have any recollection of what I am speaking of?
( and a hello to anyone who remembers me )
could it have been to do with egg/highpath engineering? they made several pedaling aids and still continue to this day. There have been so many attempts to offset or improve the pedal design from Shimano AX inboard bearings through to cleats that prevent toe dipping. Im currently using the Power pedals like Bjarne Riis promoted which only rotate one way.
Geoff Apps (of Cleland Cycles) and his swing pedals:
Wasn't a PMP crank was it?
Cleland / Geoff Apps. Cool bikes, cool guy.
Was itching to buy one a while back, but I backed out.
