Toe Overlap(6 posts)

I recently sized a Trek 5200 at 56cm. I am 5'10" with a 33" inseam. It seemed to fit alright, but i noticed my toe overlaps the front wheel. My old 56cm Trek had a longer wheelbase. Is toe overlap a big problem?

when your toe hits the front tire!
This rarely happened to me except when I was doing extremely slow maneuvers.

....if you let it be. It's not uncommon on quality bikes. It typically goes away once you become one with the bike.

I've had a couple of bikes with pretty severe overlap, and I never touched once by accident. I could make it happen deliberately, in low-speed turns, but it never did in riding.
As someone else said, there have been several threads about that here over the months. I don't remember anybody saying it had caused them trouble.
