There is a wheel specifically designed to prevent toe stroke caused by toe overlap. You have to take time to get pedal timing right, but once you do, it is very effective.

It's a trek 2100, yes it has a tripple but I think it was mainly a commuter for a girl whose father owned a bike shop.

It's well-known that cheap Chinese bikes are designed for Chinese people, who tend to have small feet. Grow smaller feet and you won't have a problem.

I think toe interference is a design feature. It lets you know when you are about to futch up!

Always amusing to read the imagined horrors of those just discovering it for the first time. I guess I must have discovered it when riding my first bike back in the mid 60's. I suppose only the neighbor kids had to listen to me gripe if I did even gripe about it. Not the hole world.

...there are adaptations and modification tricks that you can use, to fit this bicycle perfectly to your needs.

This bike is has a very short stem so it is very twitchy, its also much too small for me (it says 47 on the frame but I dont think its actually that small.) In trying to recreate this failure mode I almost crashed a few times. luckily it seems like this is impossible at high speeds because of how bikes turn, if that makes sense. Anyone else deal with this before? Is it because im riding too small of a bicycle? Its wicked fast
Don't use that foot. Pedal with the other foot. This would eliminate your "failure mode" and also make your other foot much stronger.

They are also developing AWD bikes with ABS, very useful for riding on snow icey roads in winter time
