Power Grips pedals offer extra-long strap sets for better toe-out and easier installation, which might be helpful for your prosthetic foot.

It's inspiring to hear about your progress post-TKR! Completing two multi-day tours and gearing up for a 960 km journey around Taiwan showcase your determination and strength. Wishing you all the best for your upcoming adventure looking forward to hearing about your experiences!

Update

I completed 1200 km cycling the island of Taiwan last November. I needed pain relieve on occasions, but I managed the heat and exertion very well.

It has been a long and painful journey (18 months) since my op, but I no longer need pain relief and my future looks bright.

I've had two TKR and found that I couldn't get the positioning of the cleats just right. Switched to flat pedals and have had no problems since!

Yes, expanding what I stated above:
I have a set (of Power Grips pedals) that I can put on 1 of my bikes (i.e., unassigned pedals right now). I converted them to the "extra long strap set" in order to get enough toe-out for my prosthetic foot. The longer strap set is also much easier to install and adjust than the standard set.
