    Greetings, all.

    Just purchased a nice 2006 this evening. I have been looking for a couple months and was just about to give up and buy new. Even had financing arranged through my credit union. Really glad I didn’t have to drop 5 grand on a new model.
    I have been reading the forum a lot. There’s lots of good info here. I think my first add on might be some wide foot pegs, then I’m going to put some miles on it and see if it needs anything else. It’s all stock except for a rack and lithium battery.

    Welcome to you from NY.
    I have a 2006 too and the footpegs for Pre-Kindergardeners was the very first thing I changed. I ordered them as soon as I got home with the bike, didn't even take it off the trailer yet.
    I did want to show this new-to-me quirky bike to my friends and my brother right away but I just couldn't until I changed the pegs.
    Procycles ASM pegs are spendy but super high quality. That's what I have:

    There are of course good and cheaper alternatives but I really didn't want to mess with drilling or filing down anything or buying additional hardware. All you need is in this box for a 5 minute install of an aftermarket part that is ironically, built to a higher standard than the actual bike it is going on. You'll see when you open the box:


    I soon after added an IMS long shifter to go with it but that's another story:

    Wide (actually just normal in my mind) footpeg and adult sized shifter. I wear an 11.5-12 shoe/boot. The stock foot-switchgear was ridiculous. You'll really want this more if you ride off-road and stand a lot.

    If you plan on any dirt riding get rid of the front tire.

    Hi Aaron, and welcome to the forum!

    It looks like you snagged that great deal that I saw posted (briefly) on craigslist in Palo Alto. You are now officially one of the Norcal Nutjobs here on the forum. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need any help with your new bike.
