Pedal stroke power


Which results in more power or does it really matter. Toes pointing down or toes pointing out ( flat footed )?


Way too many variables to say including, but not limited to: saddle height, cleat position, seat tube angle, saddle fore/aft and the nuances of your particular physiology… and to the second point, no, it doesn’t really matter if neither style gives you issues. More likely to experience calf tightness with pointy twinkletoes though!
