Default Re: pullstarter or no on my cruiser

Popping the clutch to start these is the normal way and harmless to your spokes, Yeah, the pull starts usually interfear with the pedals and you either need to use the wider cranks or you can bend the crank just enough to clear the pull start, the only thing about bending the crank to clear is that you'll feel it being slightly off when you're pedaling unless you do a double bend. Mine just needed about 1/4 inch to clear it but I can definitely feel it when I need to pedal, but I don't pedal much at all because I got a bad ankle so it's not a big deal for me, it would be if I did more pedaling tho.
