  • crank to pedals transition

    Ok then... I'm currently learning how to leg wrap. I've got the wrap bit sorted but I'm a bit unsure of getting from the cranks to the pedals.

    Should I land my wrapping foot on the crank, or on the pedal? I understand that to do the more complex stuff like rolling wraps etc it should go back to the crank but, for now, I just want to stall, legwrap, and carry on cycling.

    I've tried both. If I land on the crank I can do a tiny little mini-hop back onto the pedals. If I land on the pedal with my wrapping foot I have to get my arse on the seat pretty sharpish so I can take the weight off my support leg to get it back on the (rear) pedal.

    Both ways are farrrr from consistent (I only tried it today) so I was wondering if either method is preferred (and if so, why) or if it's just personal choice.

    All sorted so no need to waste your time on me

    I've been busy for 2 or 3 hours with this (in between cooking, lol) and I'm much more comfortable going to crank and doing a little micro hop to get back on the pedals.

    I can't do the complete legwrap yet but I can do the legwrap to crank and the cranks to pedals as two separate moves, so hopefully I'll have it in a session or two
