    Pedal Help For A BK Amp

    Hi everyone,

    I haven't been on a bike in years and I'm hoping somebody can help. I'm a BK Amp, and when I get on a bike, my prosthetic leg angles outward about 45deg at the toe. This also causes the inside of my heel to rub against the crank, to the point of knocking my foot completely off the pedal.My plan is to get a comfort bike and I'd like to keep this as simple as possible.

    Any recommendations?

    pedal extenders. These put the pedals farther out from center, giving your prosthetic foot more room.
    Some links Amazon.com : BikeFit Pedal Spacers 20Mm : Bike Repair Tools : Sports & Outdoors

    Amazon.com: Sunlite Pedal Extenders - 9/16" Pedal, 9/16" Crank, 27.5mm: Sports & Outdoors

    You may also want to look at either Power Grips or toe clips for pedals, to help the prosthetic foot stay on the pedal.
