When riding my Vision R40 after about 10 miles my feet go numb. I have tried every thing I could think of so far to correct this. From differant shoes & socks to differant reclined positions with my seat. Nothing has worked so far. When I asked a professional at a recumbent shop about it he informed that I am 1 of 2% of the population that rides recumbents that has to deal with this & that it is nothing to be too concerned about, especially since the numbness goes away. I also asked a podiatrist, an othopediadic specialist & a chiroprator about this too. They all said the same thing. As long as the numbness goes away instantly after I take my foot off of the pedal it is not a big concern, but more of a nuisance.
But I still would rather it not happen. First does anyone have any suggestions that I have not tried yet to correct this? And second, what about trying knee savers? Maybe if my feet & legs were a little further from the pedals my feet would go numb or not as bad.
