Even the pros are realizing that wider may be better. Actually stance width is an individual thing but the more cyclists are exposed to proper bike fit and manufactures supply the proper equipment – “wider” is here and it is growing.
Some of our recent numbers support that at least half of the pedals on a bike should be a different length and that is probably a low estimate/finding. Today actually getting the different length pedals may be another story but one day that will not be an issue. Eventually different length spindles will be common place and not just found at a few select Speedplay dealers. Going out on a limb I would say this spindle length choice will become expected in bike sizing….that means even before the actual bike fit.
