I've gotta give a major thumbs up to the ProCycle Lowered Footpegs... :good:

Got a Seat Concepts seat for Christmas, the low version because I'm vertically challenged (5'7", 30" inseam). Loved everything about the new seat except how cramped it made my legs feel. Shifting was ackward because of how bent my knees were, etc...

So, I ordered up the ProCycle Lowered Footpegs (one farkle usually does lead to another :lol: ). Got them in last night, and had them installed in less than an hour. The actual footpeg install takes about 15 minutes, the rest of the time is just fiddling with the brake pedal angle and shifter angle and installing the replacement brake light spring that comes with the kit. I did have to shorten the brake adjuster screw a little (the instructions in the kit were spot-on for this), which took 5 minutes with an angle grinder, including the time to unbolt the master cylinder from the frame, grind 1/8" off the end of the screw, and reinstall it).

Likes:

1. I got my legroom back! My knees are at the same angle they were at with the stock seat now.
2. The pegs themselves are a good bit larger than the stock pegs and feel much more solid.
3. These pegs replace the stock bracket, so nothing hanging below the frame.
4. These pegs do not change the distance between the pegs and the shifter/brake - important for my size 9 feet.
5. Standing on the pegs is now much more comfortable. This was an unexpected bonus, I didn't think a short guy like me needed lowered pegs for standing.

Dislikes:

1. Can't think of any...

:Roost:

Agree on the ProCycle lowered pegs. Makes long rides much better cuz of less bend on the knees.

I have the older version PC lowered footpegs and they are good but I wished they moved the pegs back.
Now they have low AND back mounts that I would like to get...

Same with the Seat Concepts seat.
I love it, but a few months after I got mine they came out with the tall version...

+1 to the ProCycle lowered footpegs, well worth the investment.

I'm looking into changing to lowered footpegs too.

I'm 6'2, inseam 36". I'm thinking I need the lower and rearward pegs, and I'm also looking into the ProTaper ADV handlebars with a 1" riser.

Anybody else my size have any suggestions?

I'm 5'11" with a 34" inseam, not quite as tall and long legged. I would suggest starting with the ADV highs w/o the riser first.

And, I do love my ProCycle lowered pegs!
