Well I bought a shaman tiagra triple crank off eBay to test the smaller crank arm theory for recumbent. I have not seen a need for expensive cranks yet. Hell this one weighed less then the original. So I put them on and thread the pedals on by hand. Well the left one started to cross thread and I thought that was a bit weird. But I started it again and it was fine. Tighten them down and take a test ride. Well I get 50 feet before the left foot feels weird and I discover the pedal is flopping around. The right is loose too.
Well hopefully the eBay seller will refund me. I only spent 25.00 but still.
As I was riding home not sure if i was not paying attention or if I moved over a bit for another rider and we greeted and right after he passed a lady doored me. I was only going about 10mph and I was only a little ways in the zone so I swerved and braked and just hit my elbow I think. I donít think my bike hit. Got her number and license but other then a nice bump on my elbow I will live.
