@bizutch: after one year of riding i tried the V2 Footpeg setup - allowing a rotation..... i have to admit: i was surprides how good it feels! :D

Would love to try this. Bike must be so quiet. We could ride these in wilderness areas!!

I like it. Clearly, you ride lift-assisted only. Are there sections where you have to push with your feet, Flintstones-style?

bb-axle, pedal-axle and rear-wheel-axle stay parallel to each other all the time and that's good =)

- I do wear mx-boots and they work really well.. compared to my 5.10 they offer some great safety bonus
- the footpegs are spaced out wide to reach a total width, SAME as I have had on the old setup (cranks + pedals)
- using pedals was my first try. simply bolting them onto the BB... this didnt ride well...
- having "steel pegs" who dont get out of the way, if they get in contact with an obstacle, can cause nasty crashes. have experienced this "folding" feature already many times

no worries... ==> as long as you roll (no chain tension), you dont have any advantages with the crank-setup for shifting your weigt front/back or left/right.... any
because there is no difference.... you stand on the bottom-bracket-axle with both systems

in other words... rolling, you can not put a different load at the pedals at any time (front/back) ==> they can not help you more than the footpegs do

Hi Gabs,
Wicked, been thinking of this since Gwin won without a chain, especially coming from a Mx background. Where did you get it made please.
Would love to try it...

Hi Gazza,

glad you like it.

I designed it by myself and a colleague milled the 2 main peaces. The footrests are stock parts from a ktm-freeride e

maybe there exist grippier footpegs... Think about using pivot-pegs... (http://www.pivotpegz.info/)

if you ask me, the height of the CG does not affect the grip... I looked at many pro-videos and in 99% they keep the pedals in a horizontal position. no matter how the turn looks like. if the put the inside foot of the pedal, the outer pedal must go down (mechanically there is no other way).

if i put the foot down - offcamber - i need do bend my outer leg... right

seems less comfortable, but didn't put me in any uncomfortable situation yet

My stand is about 3-4cm lower, than with the usual setup ==> the hole you see on the sideplates, sits on the bottom bracket axle.
