There a thread about our bikes on www.advrider.com:

www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=178947

Actually it was where I got the idea to make a list of things to improve it for touring. Anyway, one of the recent posts asks:

"Just out of curiousity, is it easy/possible to lower the footpegs some?"

Recommendations please. I'll post them. Thanks.

Lowering the pegs will make them more prone to dragging than they already are. I wouldn't recommend it.

I guess an adapter plate could be made to relocate the whole assembly lower. Fitted to the existing frame mounts and a new set of tapped holes at the new desired location. People do that to raise them and move them rearward but I've never heard of lowering them, for the reason stated above. I really wouldn't do it.

Hey... what if a nice skateboard wheel & axle was attached at the end of the footpeg!!?

(Yeah... yet another feeble attempt at humor.) 8)

:p do your students dig the attempts? lol - In my experience I always thought teachers (esp math sci types) that put in a swing a humor once in a while were actually very good educators (and kinda showed they cared!)
