Richard- Nothing to differ with here, nor add a new take on, as your summation concludes the issue. Joe Starck, Sun Prairie, Wisconsin Richard M Sachs <richardsachs@juno.com> wrote:i've missed most of the follow-up to this thread but i'll add this to clarify my earlier remarks from this a.m.: you pedal with the ball of your foot. therefore, people with similar heights, limb lengths, or whateva', that have different foot sizes will also have their saddle's height and fore-aft placement differ. the foot length plays a major role as a component in bicycle set-up when compared to a person's 'height'-that's how the thread began... the relationship of the foot length (where the cleat will be...), when considered with leg length, will help determine where the saddle will end up. e-RICHIE chester, ct

snipped: "Richard Rose" writes: Joe / Grant / e-richie, Grant does sort of address what I was wondering about, in response to your query. The pedaling style thing would seem to have a greater bearing on proper fit than actual size of ones foot? Hey, I am not debating the validity of anything here. If e-richie says size of foot is important I believe it. I am just curious about the intricacies.
