Re: Lil' Brutus Jr. Finally on the Road Today Need Suggestions for foot rests!
Your idea of resting your feet on the front wheel sounds a little unsafe to me. I can see your reasoning and the need to find a comfy place to rest your legs but it would seem to me that control, especially in an emergency could be compromised by having your feet rest on the front forks.
This is only my opinion and I'm sure you'll get others either agreeing or disagreeing with me.
If it were me I'd probably look for alternatives to a mounting place, possibly off the down tube. Just a question, did you retain the pedals?
Good luck and I'm glad your bike has been a success so far. Have fun, ride safe.
