I feel stupid now...

PS: How are Powercranks on long road rides? Are they better than normal cranks once you are used to them?
Thanks but LWaB has dibs methinks

Don't know about that - most people think they're odd when they first see them - although every now and then you get someone who knows what they are(identified by the massive grin and "waddayathink?")

anyway I can't comment on rides longer than 1 hour myself but people have used them for long distance multi-day touring, ironman triathlons, ultradistance cycling and a number of TdF pros use them so...
shameless POWERCRANK plug

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
