    Bigger calf

    I've been riding MTB for 3 years now and noticed my left calf is bigger than my right. My right is usually the front foot when I'm out of the saddle and my left leg seems to take most of my weight, which might account for more muscle on that side. Anyone else?

    Haven't really noticed on mine. They look about the same size but I haven't been riding very long or consistent until a few months ago.

    Not sure, but I've heard that most people have a differential. It came up because of a guy whose right calf has worn the paint right off the seatstay but the lefthand paint is fine. He's thinking it is from the favored front foot as well.
