    First thing to go...

    ...are the pedals! I hate having flat wide feet so I immediately order bmx style pedals and even pedal extenders. You guys run into this issue?

    I run pedal extenders and clip ins on my new road bike. I don't like riding without them now.

    The pedal extenders do make the ride more enjoyable.

    Yup! I got big wide nice alloy pedals on my fancy carbon/alloy road bikes. They weigh a lot but I can't handle pedals like the MKS style or clips ins due to messed up ankles and lack of motor control. With smaller pedals, my ankles would roll and my foot would fall off the side of the pedal.

    I noticed I'd have the same ankle pain as when I would try to jog. I don't have any on my mountain bike though.

    my feet are always up against the crank arms. wondering if pedal extenders would be good for me or just larger pedals. interesting post. came across this web page and the graphic intrigued me

    I buy wider pedals and add extenders to keep my heel from hitting the crank arm. Wearing Brooks Beasts doesn't help but I need those ugly shoes to keep my ankles from overpronating.
