    It's just a footpeg, but made up of three parts:

    RGK-330 Gillies Folding Piece Pair
    UF-16-KIT Gillies Footrests - Pair - Silver
    RGK-A-20 Gillies RGK2 Adjuster Plate Pair 20mm

    Calsport have a discount on at present, so all in about £75.

    Not got raised bars. Not overly but then Iíve covered about 200k in the last 10 years on sports bikes so I may be immune to it.
    Think the lowered pegs help with it.

    So it dried up here just long enough to go and test these. I have them set forward and down and the 20mm makes some difference! The gear pedal is slightly high, but I reckon that can be adjusted. By contrast the brake pedal is now much better positioned. An additional bonus is that the pegs are much more grippy. Recommended.

    I found raising the seat with the racing body work really helped but I still find the bike a bit of a squeeze on the knees and i think I'm going to try lowering the pegs a little for next weekends racing or perhaps move them back a bit more to try and get the office feeling a bit more natural.
