Believe it or not, I have NEVER in 3600 miles had a foot accidentally slip
off (or get knocked off) a pedal – until two days ago. So I can’t answer
that one from experience on a Coker, but my strong hunch is that longer
cranks minimize this difficulty bc the remaining foot (the one still on
the other pedal) has greater control Shorter cranks minimize control in
Anyone else want to weigh in?
