Re grip, certainly not as much as the Fastway, but I think they look adequate, and these won't shred my boots.

Footpegs

I'm toying with the idea of getting lowered pegs. Anyone have experience doing that? Do the shift and brake levers need to be adjusted, and if so how is that done?

Is there any risk of losing the rubber nut thingies when you take off the shield? Are you putting a bolt in them to ensure some nut expansion to prevent them from coming out?

XCX suspension problems

At around 400 miles my bike started developing a chatter/knocking in the front suspension. Currently in the shop on warranty claim at 630 miles.
Anyone else have a similar issue?
