Frank Berto’s tire pressure chart, first published in Bicycle Quarterly many years ago, has received much attention. (Note that the weights are per wheel, not for the entire bike.)
“Crank length is part of a system of hinges and levers that must operate in the larger context of an individual’s biomechanics.
Longer cranks increased flexion and the range of movement required at both the hip and knee.
Where there is indecision, cyclists should opt for a shorter crank to reduce the risk of injury.
There does not appear to be a strong argument for optimising crank length in terms of pure performance.
There was no significant change in power when cranks were as long as 200mm or as short as 150mm.
Longer cranks can make a difference, but only for short sprints from a standing start with a fixed gear ratio.”
“We will be bringing finished production samples of the product.
This is only fitting, as Interbike is where we made our formal public announcement just 1 year ago.
In just 1 year, XShifter has gone from rough 3D printed prototypes to a highly refined production tooled product.”
