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 )
