Foot Peg Position, Turning

Can anyone tell me where your foot is on the peg whenever you are in a full lean and your knee is dragging the ground? I've never though about it until today.

Re: Foot Peg Position, Turning

as for the foot on the outside, have your heel of your boot against the back of the peg.

Re: Foot Peg Position, Turning

I have the inside foot on the end of the peg at the ball of the foot, turned into the corner. My outside leg I have the instep (heel part of the boot) up against the peg and my foot more on the peg than off. This seems to be working great for me allowing my body to turn properly on the bike while offering good stability on the outside leg making getting off easier.

It's a fairly new technique for me, but was huge once I tried it. Looking forward to making it a bit more habitual next month.

U also want to weigh your outside peg a bunch abd be light on the inside so u can pull your leg in.

What I have learned is that if I make an effort to open my hips my outside leg is planted abd my knee sticks out further✋
