when i peddle im finding that i point my toes down on the down stroke, not STRAIGHT down, but down. is this bad? should my feet be relatively flat? just go with whats comfortable, or what?
How is your seat height?cabinfever

I've been told that riders with a good "spin" actually have their heals in a lower position than the pedal spindle at the bottom of their stroke. It is like they are dragging their heal. I would make sure that you don't have your seat too high. Make sure you aren't rocking your hips when pedaling. If this checks out though, and it is comfortable for you, go with it.
