Why Use Pedal Extenders?
With the advancement of modern bicycles, knee injuries are becoming increasingly more rare. A majority of the force that is created in the knee joint acts through the quadriceps muscles to extend and contract the knee joint for a full cyclical repetition. Bicycling is considered so advantageous for the strengthening of the muscles around the knee that many sufferers of advanced knee injuries will take to cycling to improve strength and mobility in the knee joint. Common knee injuries from impact sports (basketball, running, football, etc) include tearing of the ACL, PCL, LCL, MCL and patellar tendon.
That being said, there is still a risk for severe knee injury while biking if the proper biomechanics are not used for each pedal stroke. This can result an in overuse syndrome that when used repetitively, can severely irritate and degrade connecting tissue in the knee. Overuse can result in knee disorders such as ilial-tibial (IT) band syndrome, hamstring tendonitis, and patellar tendonitis. When performed properly, cycling can work to increase knee strength and actually help these injuries.
There are several factors that are involved in the biomechanics of a proper cycling stroke. A proper bike fit to the rider can be characterized by several factors including saddle position, seat height, cleat/foot position, toe-out vs. toe-in, stem height/length and the Q factor. The Q factor distance is measured as the distance from one side of the crank arm to the other side of the crank arm. This Q factor directly effects the pedal to pedal spacing, and in turn, the spacing between your left and right foot when riding. The Q factor MUST BE OPTIMIZED for a given rider’s flexibility, riding goals, bike geometry, and individual biomechanics. Another factor that is often overlooked is foot pronation (ankle rolling inward) and supination (ankle rolling outward) which can be directly affected by the Q factor (pedal to pedal spacing).
As a result, keeping the knee in a neutral riding position is incredibly important for proper loading of the knee joint while cycling. If the knee spacing is too small, the ankle is in constant pronation which can put undue stress on the medial side of the knee joint. Continued overuse in this configuration can result in degeneration overtime.
If you are a cyclist and you frequently experience lateral knee pain, there is a very good chance that the proper pedal spacing (Q factor) has not been set for the given rider. When a bicycle pedal spacing is used that is too narrow, lateral knee pain can present as pain on the outside of the leg/knee from the foot all the way up the leg. Since road bikes tend to use a narrower bottom bracket, these types of bikes are the biggest offenders when it comes to too small of a Q factor.
Experiment: Take a set in a chair without thinking much about the placement of your knees. You’ll notice that your knees will want to gravitate to a natural “knees out” sitting position. This can also be seen when squatting with heavy weight. When squatters experience knee pain, they are often told to try the knees out approach to relieve this stress. The same principle applies to cycling; The neutral position for the knees is wider spacing and point slightly out. With our pedal extenders, there is no guess work! Try out a pair today and have your cleats properly adjusted to your biomechanics. If you don’t notice a difference in knee pain after one ride contact us for a full money back guarantee!
For years we had customers complain about how difficult it is to remove the flywheel on a Mercury Mariner Engine. We decided to design an affordable tool that can easily remove these stubborn flywheels in minutes. Simply install the puller tool by threading into the female threads of the flywheel. Then, tighten the high strength pusher bolt to pull the flywheel off of the crankshaft with ease. Each kit includes a steel puller spacer to protect your crankshaft from damage while using the puller tool kit.
We've yet to meet a flywheel that we couldn't remove with this easy to use kit! Quit fighting your flywheel and try yours today! This is a must have tool for any Mercury Mariner or Yamaha Force engine owner.
Each Kit Includes:
-High Strength Steel Threaded Puller Adapter - Black Oxide Coated for Protection
-High Strength Zinc Electroplated Bolt
-Steel Puller Spacer - Black Oxide Coated for Protection
Do you own a Bradley Smoker? Tired of wasting your last 2 bisquettes during a smoking cycle? Maybe you want to create intermittent smoking? If this is the case then these bisquette saver pucks are for you. Normally the last two flavor bisquettes in a bradley smoker smolder and do not burn completely, compromising flavor. Place the bisquette savers at the end of your stack, and the savers will properly complete the smoking cycle. You can also use them to experiment with different smoking cycles, arranging them between flavor bisquettes to cycle smoking on and off automatically. Machined to exact tolerances so they will not jam, and anodized black for durability and easy cleaning, you'll wonder how you smoked anything without them.
Works on any model electric Bradley Smoker
Prevents the last two pucks from smoldering and spoiling your flavor
Space bisquette savers in between flavor bisquettes to experiment with different smoking styles
Made of aircraft grade 6061-T6 billet aluminum
Anodized black for durability and easy cleaning- dishwasher safe!
The middle of the puck has been removed to reduce weight, preventing additional stress on the Bradley smoke generator
