One other thought -- I have a history of knee problems, including two full and one partial dislocation of the left kneecap. Although bicycling rarely bothers my knees, I occasionally experience a little knee pain when riding the Ross mountain bike, which has an aluminum frame and a 73mm wide BB shell, which places the pedals farther apart than on any of my other bikes.
