Yes but that is an advanced skill. Adjusting foot position is something that becomes necessary quite early in the leaning curve. Moreover it can sometimes be desirable under considerable pedaling load which is not a situation for one footing it.
Over the past few days I have tried with pedals having different severity of pins. To some extent there is a trade off in pedal design between the ability to move and the propensity to stay put. My Nimbus pedals have bumps and this was easier to move about on than the Odyssey with pins but my foot would move at inopportune times in normal riding.
My conclusion was that the propensity for my foot to stay put was the most important and I would have to work out how to move on them when required.
After some experimenting I have made progress by moving the pressure point of my foot in a circle to generate a slow movement across the pedal. This technique actually takes advantage of the fact that the pin grip to my hard sole shoes is so good it is possible to reduce the hold to just a few pins while maintaining almost normal pedaling power arcs.
The movement on each cycle is small but, because it degrades power only minimally, the action can be maintained for multiple sequential cycles, accumulating the desired translation progressively without interrupting normal riding.
I’ll keep working at it an get a better understanding. Any feed back from anyone who wants to try the idea would be interesting.
I could be barking up the wrong tree but I keep thinking the principles of the harmonic drive has the potential to get involved here. Sorry I don’t have a better explanation of what I am talking about.
