To fear TCO or to regard it as > Dangerous....well, it's ust something that to me doesn't make any sense. I also disagree - I strongly dislike toe clip overlap, having encountered it on a few frames (I usually ride long-raked 60-62cm frames now, so have little problem). It can be a problem trackstanding, riding slowly, turning sharply while riding a fixed gear, riding offroad, and climbing slowly. If it doesn't make you crash, it's still annoying, inconvenient, and I don't want to sit around while riding constantly thinking, "Oh, I better be careful not to jamb my shoe into my fender". Bicycles should not cause this kind of low-grade anxiety. It's unnecessary - if a bike has TCO, the wheels are too big. Design it out with smaller wheels! One cyclist's opinion.
