    Pedal shims for Bigfoot?

    I feel like a dope asking but is there a source for shims to place between the crank and the pedal? I have a hammer toe condition on one foot and my shoe rubs the crank arm slightly just behind my big toe. If I could set the pedal outboard even 2 mm it would help. I suppose I could get a washer at the hardware store but that that wouldn't be a pretty picture! Thanks!

    If you only want 2mm, you might get away with washers. They're a relatively common part because some cranks need a little extra protection from the pedal spindle, so any bike shop will have them. You can't go out very far that way or not enough of the spindle is threaded into the axle, in which case AZ's suggestion is the way to go.

    Some models of pedal sit further out than others, so there's that too.
