    I'm liking them more and more... Funny looking but ample lean angle before pedal strike -

      I am not getting this. Is this a single track thing? I don't think I have dragged a pedal but I have dragged my big size 15 feet if my pedals are in a 12/6 o'clock position. This still only happens if I stretch my leg out with my heel pointing down. Are you pedaling around turns in rough terrain?

        With usual 170mm crank arms I hit ground leaning while pedaling during turns/corners all the time. Also pedal striking large humps/bumps off-road too.

        As you can see these little shorties (114mm) don't even stick out past the motor. Compared to "normal" length it feels weird but as I grow more accustomed/conditioned to the feel the more I like them because of the extra ground clearance.

      With 170mm cranks I got almost 6" of clearance on my folding 20" fat bike. To scrape I have to be leaning beyond my tire grip limit ... Or be over a big root or bump.

      On my Full Suspension mtb with 175mm cranks I have 5.5" clearance, which goes down to 4.5 or so after sag (as soon as I sit on the bike), and probably down to 2.5" or even 2" on full compression (I got 4" suspension travel, so theoretically about 3.5" or a little more downward travel at max compression). So yeah there I have to be careful which leg is down when leaning on turns, and I usually don't pedal on sharp turns.

        With 170mm crank arms I'm down to around 5" or slightly less. But with the 114mm Uni crank arms look at practically 7" of clearance! Which means I can keep pedaling while severely leaning through most curves/corners. Something which always bothered me since it suck's to cut power in those situations and/or suffer pedal strike. Which btw, take a close look at the end of that pedal:

          If you think 114 is good, you gotta try my 74s! I can send them.
