    I'd like to see a front foot peg that incorporates a foot operated brake much as a motorcycle has. On a motorcycle there is a hand brake on the right and a clutch lever only on the left. Be nice to get my feet off them peddles and much safer with only 1 lever on the left side. .duh.

    Have you considered one of the dual pull brake levers. Then the clutch would be on the left and the right lever would apply both brakes evenly?

    I think it's safer to keep your feet on the pedals!! In case you need to react fast!!! IMHO :D

    I can do that easy w/my hand brakes, even when they're wet - much to the detriment of me tires lol The "trick" is get real brake pads. Not stock, not Walmart - real ones heh

    They're only like $6 a set anyway. I didn't think they would make that much of a difference - I was very wrong. They last a heck of a lot longer too.


    Oh and remember to resurface them once in a while with a file ;)
