    gear lever to far away !

    does anyone find the gear lever to far away ? i do.
    i have size 10 boots and i have to use the very end of my boots to change up gear unless i move my foot so the heel of my foot is on the peg.
    i have had many many bikes and never had this problem before.
    is there any way to move the gear lever closer to the peg ? im pretty sure there is not but i will ask anyway.

    looks like the answer is to buy a motech adjustable lever, theres another £120 gone.

    Strange - I'm a size 44 boot (almost a 10) and I've never even thought about it.

    Try hitting your foot with a hammer - it should swell up to the perfect size. Repeat for each journey.  Make sure you hit the left foot though. You don't want your foot on the back brake all the time!  :028:
    What a long strange trip it's been...

    Hi
    I found that too, and that it was right over my toenail which was sensitive after the toe had been broken
    Size 10 foot
    I got the SW Motech one
    Expensive but it did the job
