Do pedals come in widths? Can I get a wider pedal to fit my wide feet?
I wear a size 13 EEEE, a wide shoe. I'm biking in regular shoes, not cleated. My pedals are plain platform style (not cleated, no strap, no toe clips, just flat). I'm having trouble fitting my feet on the pedals. I'm either off the outsides by an inch or two, stepping on the crank arm, or both.
I'm getting overuse on the outsides of my lower legs, and I think it's from trying to keep my feet flat on the pedals.
The bike's an MTB, but I'm just using it to get around, nothing intense.
Follow-up a few months later (2017/06/12):
I went with pedal extenders (Sunlite Pedal Extenders, $16.50 on Amazon) and it's about one million percent better. They offered 21mm and 27.5mm variants, and I went with the wider one which turned out to be the right choice. My shoe fills all the space between the crank and the outside of the pedal. (When did my feet get so big?) It doesn't seem to matter that there's no pedal under the inside part of my feet.
The extenders take an 18mm wrench (field repairs) although I think tightening a pedal with the usual wrench would also tighten the extender.
