    Are you sure the chain isn't too long?

    Well, the 'professional body' seems to me to claim rather more than that - my emphasis:

    https://www.osteopathy.org.uk/visiting-a­n-osteopath/about-osteopathy/

    Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions... based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.
    To an osteopath, for your body to work well, its structure must also work well. So osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery.
    Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.

    ..and contrast physiotherapy

    PD-A520s? peasant, PD-A600s are 30g lighter. My PD-ES600s (another 10g lighter) haven't arrived yet

    What is the advantage of laces though - comfort due to tension being applied at more points?

    I got the (mistaken/outdated/wrong?) impression they are great for custom fit but aren't actually that wide

    [edit - but looks like they now have a wide option - i should have another look]

    well, people are different... and seems neither of us have properly compared laces vs. non-laced ;-)

    i think part of it is that i have a very wide forefoot, narrow wheel - like a duck - so all my shoes are slightly too big front-back

    I'd say about twice every ride. I tighten them a lot more than I loosen them - putting them on in the house, I always underestimate just how tight I actually want them. And I might loosen them at cafe stop.

    So am die-hard ratchet/Boa user, and interested to know - what is the advantage of laces to other people?

    ..but only lace option for all their shoes, so you have to stop to loosen/tighten.
