    Rear brake lever mod?

    I know my buddy and I are still getting acquainted with our tdubs but we both seem to think the brake is a lil hard to find. Has anyone modified the foot lever pad, kinda like the pegs, or do we need to keep practicing foot braille?

    I seem to recall someone doing this, but it's been a long time. Shouldn't be hard to do. Mine is a bent outwards a bit but I find it actually puts the lever right under my boot. A wider cleat would be handy sometimes.

    when i put on new footpegs, i cut the end off of the old one and welded it on my foot brake lever to increase the area. no more foot braille.

    Never had a problem finding the rear/foot brake... but that is a darn good idea if you do.

    As far as I know there is no aftermarket foot brake pedal like there is for the shifter.
    Your mod solves that without going to a larger shifter from another bike. Brilliant.

    The available weld on foot peg extension is what brought up the idea. Nice to see we're not crazy lol.

    Thanks!

    Wouldn't surprise me if Joemama's design was also be a good bottle opener.
