Folding only, but I have to ask, why would you want fixed? There's a bunch of advantages to folding, and none I'm aware of to fixed...

My thoughts exactly but maybe it has to do with stunts.

Racing and trackdays.

Fixed act like frame sliders when you wad up. To me it's the difference between potentially mangled controls after a little lowside, or a little bit of the peg getting ground off.

But dont they limit cornering clearance if they are fixed? I know the tips of my pegs are the first to touch.

Definitely does. I'm used to fixed pegs in the "up and back" position. Ah la vortex/woodcraft/sato. But with them low like they are, you'd just have to hang off the bike more to keep the clearance. Folders are nice in the fact that they give you a little warning before you hit immovable parts(like the sumos do), I still prefer the stability of them being fixed though.

Tried to order, but was listed as sold out when I went to pay. Please let me know when they are back in stock. Thanks.

Sorry about that. Normally, I'd make all this type stuff in house, but I've got a list a mile long of new things to finalize, and these are great units up to my standard. All that said, I ordered 50, and they had 5 on hand, which vanished in short order. Plenty more should be in in a week or two. I try my best to keep inventory levels high, but this one was a bit out of my control. I'll rush it as best I can. Greg
