About the bike, does too great a "Q" factor mean the pedals are too far apart? Perhaps shorter crankarms would fix it.
Yup, that's it exactly. The pedals are too far apart. This then stresses my hip joints (and knees).
Switching this bike from a triple to a double, with a correspondingly shorter BB spindle would fix it. But I don't ride it often. At some point I'm going to buy a new bike. Then this one will be converted to a SS/FG and the BB/crank will be changed to get to the right width. At least, that's the current plan.
Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.
