A few months ago I managed to force myself to run 'wrong' foot forward. I'd always gone right foot forward, but by consciously making myself roll through stuff left foot forward, I'm now reasonably happy hitting stuff either way round (yay!). Sure makes technical sections loads easier.
Now, I always run my saddle way up, higher than comparatively proportioned riders, so I figure I must pedal toes down, and if I could learn to pedal with flatter feet, I could drop the saddle whilst straightening the leg to the same degree, making technical sections a little easier.
EDIT: I have done the heel on the pedal, straight at the 6 o'clock position technique. Seems right.
However, if I try and ride with my saddle down a couple of cm lower, my leg muscles scream. I don't seem to be able to learn to hold my foot in a different manner.
Any tips? Ideas?
