Roadsmith Comfort Controls

Anybody know any more about these? They were advertised on the back cover of wingworld. I went to the website which says they'll be debuted July 4th and cost $699 plus installation. That seems pretty steep so I was wondering if anybody here had any more information.

I googled Roadsmith and it's still a mystery to me...

http://trikeshop.com/news/4192012/

Ah here we go...

the new controls actually move both foot pegs and the brake and shift levers forward 3 inches and down 1 inch using a collection of machined parts and linkages that bolt on to the bike and promise thousands of miles of trouble-free usage.

For $700.00 plus installation.... it had better be bullet proof.... for at least 100k miles.

Cool piece of equipment, but not for $700!

I wouldn't want the pegs lower they already scrape when cornering.

I saw the same ad, idea seems good. A little pricey, but sure would like to sit on a bike first before buying. After reading there web-site they acted like they would be at the GoldWing Wing Ding in Fort Wayne in July.

The pic on the website doesn't show it on a trike but your statement is correct.

To each his own but for me the standard peg position is too far aft for me to stand on comfortably. I like to do so periodically to cool my posterior while riding though I quit standing on
Gl1800 pegs after seeing a couple pegs that had sheared off.
