    They are pretty sweet looking, way better than the unfinished look of brand X :D:D

    I will place an order through your web site today, may get an add'l set for my WR. Thanks.

    ...any progress on the arched footpegs? I think that's a great ergo-product.

    Yeah, Barstow sucks. We were just down there picking up some military trucks. Turning them into motorhomes and taking this show on the road!

    Thanks. Unfortunately, no progress on the footpegs. Just comes down to money, and we had to stretch ourselves pretty thin to make all the parts we've got in stock now. Those footpegs are at the top of the list though.

    Got these ages ago, put them on a few months ago, they looks sweet and are really well designed.

    Now I just need to get my other set on my BMW.

    We've got a new batch of parts being anodized right now. Should have them back in stock and ready to ship very soon.

    You guys should think about machining some lowered pegs for the ktm 690. I know there are quite a few members (myself included) that are looking for a set. I'm in Santa Cruz and ride a 690 if you need a bike to measure off of

    Talking of the damper mounts...

    Your SUB mounts come in several different bar heights, in 5mm increments.
    From the photos it looks like the total height is a sum of number of "spacers" and two different thicknesses of "top plates".

    Could you spec out the stack composition of each of the different total heights?

    Oh BTW, I think I live down the street from what I'm guessing is your guy's parents house....

    Hey 'Finn, the adjustment in height is now done by just using different length spacers. Only one set of spacers is used per mount, and there is only one height top cap now. We used to stack a combination of spacers, and use different height top caps to achieve a certain rise, but decided to go this route. Not many people were adjusting the mount once installed, and the extra parts seemed like a waste.

    Funny your down the street. Guess the trucks must have given us away! Stop by if you ever feel like talking shop, or checking out some parts.

    Here are a few quick pictures of a sample. The logo placement and spacing still need tweaking, but I'm expecting the mounts to be in some time next week.

    Thanks for the info. As I get the other pieces of my bike done, I'll get back to you guys about a damper mount.

    The trucks did it, not many folks in this town who have that kind of hardware on their driveway :lol3
    I'm literally on the same street, couple dozen houses to the east.

    See you at the Whole Foods!

    Did this ever look profitable enough to move forward?

    Hey Petrol,

    Unfortunately, we didn't seem to drum up enough interest. Jesse is start up on the Xrambler project again, so the idea will be revisited. Will be sure to let you know if we proceed!

    Awesomr products! I wish you guys the very best, I personally know how hard it is to get a start up business going.

    When ordering pinch clamps or the hangaurd triple clamp mounts; it lists qaunity as "1", is this set or individual item?
