PEDRO’S TIPS: ARE YOU RIDING THE CORRECT CRANK SIZE?
There are two common mistakes people do when they purchase a triathlon bike and don’t get assistance with their bike fit/position. One is having the seat post too high and second is to just ride whatever crankset the bike comes equipped with, regardless of its size and the rider’s height.
Most bike companies try to match a correct or advisable size to the frameset size, but obviously we are all different and it’s not as simple as one size fits all. Actually, from my experience as a triathlete and as a coach, cranksets are usually by default a size too lrage for each frameset.
