World's First Prototype Pivot Pegz for the CRF250L

Recommended Posts

Trialing these out on the crf250l.

I'll confirm whether fitment is correct and give these a good flogging.

Post a pic of one out of the box please !!! 

 

those are a very cool idea and I was intrigued .... but, for me it is too late as I have already spent big bucks on the Fastway Air pegs ...  That I must say am very happy with ...  :thumbsup:

I like the concept of how these pivots would function off road and I guess it would matter some on the tension ...  :excuseme:  They just seem to make sense if they work as good as one would think.

Most people that have them love them. I grew up riding bmx and mountain bikes so pegs that are free to move are more natural to me. I am hoping that they will assist standing while climbing steep hills ie I can lean into the hill and use more of my leg strength as opposed to hanging on with all my arm strength and getting fatigued.

The only downside I can think of would be accidental shifting hitting ruts or whoops in the flats ....  :excuseme:  But, I am sure it is just a matter of getting used to them and adjusting your style of riding....  :ride:

That's not a problem for me. I tend to ride on the balls of my feet when standing and only move my feet forward if I intentionally want to change gears or apply the rear brake.

And it would be great cause it's very similar to my platform pedals I use on my mt. Bike. Nice find!

Same here. Always have the balls of my feet on the pegs unless I'm shifting or braking.

those things just make sense!!! i mean, as long as they don't twist around in circles, its only natural that they work like this... like you said positron, you will be able to use your feet more instead of your legs... your lean angles will not dictate where your foot is positioned on the standard peg... also causing extra stress on the foot, and not let you utilize the surface area..  the peg pivoting lets full contact of the foot be used and it be used properly...   i like em.... and they are not even mine.... hahahaha

 

man, i could be capt. obvious with this post.... lol
