new bars & pegs
I just installed the large footpegs and Tusk mini high bend handlebars and "Wow!" I can't believe how they transformed the bike. The ergonomics are great. I'm 6' w/ a 32" inseam and the bike feels so much better.
The bike doesn't look & feel like it's undersized anymore. I didn't realize how much of a difference the handlebars would make. The little footpegs had always felt odd, but weren't really a problem on the street. The large footpegs really make the bike feel more capable, agile, and stable on technical woods type riding. I've only played for a few minutes in my "yard" (I live in the woods, on a mountain), but it was immediately apparent. I can't wait to get it out in the rough stuff.
I might just end up putting the 450 on Craigslist!!
