Floorboard and rear brake
The weather is cold and I still haven't ridden my new bike yet, but I've had plenty of time to look at the things that are going to scare me to death. The one I keep going back to is the floorboard and the brake. Originally, I wanted a bike with foot pegs thinking it'd be easier to ride compared to the floorboards. The owner of the shop swayed me to get this bike (which, I'm glad he did, it's gorgeous and way more power than I need) and said the floorboards wouldn't be a huge adjustment. The problem is though, is every time I sit on this thing and try the brake lever I have to damn near lift my entire foot of the platform to hit the brake and it's just down right awkward and uncomfortable. I've been researching switching all the linkage to a peg setup and running pegs. I can't find a kit to do that and would prefer to buy rather than swap, in case I change my mind. Is there a way to adjust the brake or floorboard height to adjust for this?
Thanks all! I searched the forum and it seems like people always start to go towards the switch and people sway them back. This bike is not a long distance rider, it's a commuter back and forth to work which is maybe a fifteen minute drive if traffic is bad, so I'm not worried about the added comfort of the floorboards.
