Haha, very funny
They stayed a 'normal' size 9 for years when I was wearing heels but once I was in a position to stop, believe me I did! Sneakers from that point on but then...omg...the horror began...my feet grew! ACK!
I bought the panniers/seat post rack combo for the Trek. My seat is probably about 10-12" up and now that I've been really looking at the bike I'm beginning to think that a 16.5" frame is a little small for me at 5'7". Oh well.
I also use cages on my pedals so that could have something to do with it too--my feet are back further than some probably. Maybe I should take my clipless pedals off my road bike and move them over to my Trek...no, not really...I don't want to clip clop down the grocery store aisles. lol those shoes are such a fashion statement!
