My exercise bike is ~ 19 years old; the threaded posts (in photo) pushing the pedals away from the cranks so the heels of my bow-legged feet don't hit them, are more like 29 hours old.

They became far more important as I tried to extend my ride time from 48 to 64 minutes. The problem was not the increase in overall length, that but it divides into 16 segments; going from 3 minute segments to 4 minutes on "hills" made me tired and therefore sloppy about keeping my feet straight. (Much banging of heels then occurred.)
The extenders work, too. I wish I'd found them years ago (It seems I
wantedneeded to search for "pedal extenders" not "crank extenders"), but I've got 'em now. 🙂
My first 64 minute ride is now in the books.
My thanks to my usual bicycle engineer, Katherine!
