Toe Clip Overlap

On many bicycles, especially those with smaller frames and full-sized wheels, it is possible for the front fender or tire to bump into the rider’s toe or to the toe clip. Some people worry a lot about this, but it is rarely a significant problem in practice.

The only time it can happen is when the handlebars are turned quite far to the side, as only happens at very low speeds.

Many, many people ride bicycles with fairly severe overlap with no practical problems, sometimes having to make a slight adjustment to their pedaling habits at very slow speeds.

On smaller-size bikes with full-sized wheels, it is usually impossible to eliminate overlap without causing adverse fit/handling issues.

When this first happened to me when I got FOLK, I worried that it might not be the right fit for me. Good thing that it’s a non-issue.

“When one teaches, two learn.”

At work, I explained some things to a newbie. I managed to break it down for them without using too much jargons. They said I made sense and were grateful for taking time to enlighten them on specific processes they were having trouble with.

It’s a nice feeling to help others in my own capacity, no?

beach, with no people in it

Almost sunset by the rocky beach. Also, excuse the potato quality.

Beach-less years are never the great ones, although that’s just my opinion. That’s why it’s a good thing that this month, I finally saw the sea, in person, again! I got to swim on it, too, with new friends from work. Video Proof, credits to The Videographer.
