1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    Not in mate. They use a stud extraction system to remove. Bolt cutters I think it is in layman’s terms.

    Yeah just mirror the left hoof if neeeds be mate.

    I’ll take that as a compliment Mr Hoots.

    I don’t think the brake will be the problem mate. I’m more concerned about my arch on the footpeg. The arch is your midfoot where I’ve done the damage. I might have to fab an aluminium inner sole.

    The left rear brake lever I have always wanted for rear steering. Whether my brain could work with it is another thing.

    Funny you should say that as I have had orthodics made for both feet, the right one is shaped to fill the now large arch in my foot , this is to support the metatarsal...without them, especially the right for I can not stand or walk for extended periods..
    It is solid plastic with a covered upper and some padding...have had them for years and they really to a great job in supporting your foot.

    Al, I put a Clake on my Beta 300RR late last year and I bloody love it. It's just like a mountain bike, index fingers cover and easily control both front and rear brakes. It only took a couple of rides to get my head around it, and I also have no problem swapping back to non-Clake bikes.

    I wasn’t going to go the Safari tank route. I just couldn’t pass this up.

    I want to get some perforated graphics if anyone has a lead.

    The Clake really is a good idea - even without the foot prob, plenty of times when it would be good to keep the feet on the pegs and use your left hand to brake - from memory, B1 has a few nice vid reviews in his crosstraining channels

    Re' foot - unless the surgeon has advised that standing will be an issue going forward, would not preempt that - I've broken two metatarsals in my left foot and no probs - that said, all fractures are not equal

    i wont be standing on it mate. No weight bearing till the pins come out in 4 weeks.

    The left brake idea wasnt because of my foot. I just like the idea of handbraking the rear.
