    Toeclip overlap on small frames

    Does anyone here ride the smallest frames in Raleigh RH, IRO, or Jamis Sputnik with 170mm cranks (my shoe size is 39)? That would be around 50cm frames. Any toeclip overlap? The reason I'm asking is I'd like swap the stock cranks for a pair of White Industries ENO cranks, which don't come in anything smaller than 170mm, and I really want to avoid overlapping toe and wheel if possible.

    Thanks.

    howdy. i've got a 50cm iro with 170 cranks and medium toeclips. there's no toe overlap, there are just a few mm's of clearance though. when i had large toeclips, though, there was a bit of toe overlap, but turning the wheel that far is so rare...

    i practice vagabondery.

    That's good to hear. I'll be using Eggbeaters, though. I'm new to fixed, and just don't want to deal with overlap and flipping over when I try to track stand for the first time.

    eh, i wouldn't be super-afraid of overlap, to be honest. i have a 60cm frame and i still get overlap with 170 cranks and eggbeaters... just something you deal with.

    I ride a 50cm IRO w/175 cranks and large toeclips for my monster big feet. The toeclip rubs the front tire only on the tightest turns.
