AST Adjustable Touring Pegs
« on: January 01, 2014, 02:42:45 pm »
My search-fu on this sites sucks, i could not find what i was looking for. But looking for reviews or any input on Advance Sport touring dot com's adjustable touring pegs. They have recently done a price drop and i have $25 paypal credit to use up, so I'm thinking about ordering them. My reason is simple I'm 6'3" and would be nice to be able to streach my long lankey legs out on a full fuel run.  I'll post a link but if that against site rules please let me know ill delete it.

Oh, those are neat.  Kinda complex, but neat.  Not a SINGLE mention of those on our forums before.  Must be very new and flew under the radar.  He might get some bites from people seeing it now.

I have Ronnie's highway pegs, which are more elegant and less weight but more expensive, not adjustable and with less distance available.

Well, I've got to admit I kinda like that solution for touring pegs. Had not seen them before. Thanks for the post and link!

Neither have I.  However, if their front page photo is C14, what's not to like?

  I've been eyeballing those for a while mainly because they put the pegs a good bit lower and further forward than the Canyon Cage/footpeg combos that I've seen.

  I just ordered front and back Canyon Cages today for the protection against dropping the bike. ( a little bit late in my case  :-[ ) .  I'm hoping to be able to get some pegs that will get close to the ergonomics of these.

  BTW--I believe they lowered the price on the AST pegs lately.  I could have sworn they were about $ 60 higher the last time I looked.

  They look like they will work really good for us long-legged folks.

  Let us know how they workout.  They might even work with the cages mounted up. ;)

Yes, but would they be compatible with the Canyons?  It looks like since they are adjustable, you can pull them back enough to not interfere.

Good move.  You are already kicking yourself that it wasn't your first purchase.

Well I sent them a e mail over a week ago and no reply. Don't know if they are my taking me seriously or just bad customer service all together. I found another email address I'll try one more time.

Just got a email from Ryan Niquette that is the owner of www.advancedsporttouring.com and he has agreed to sell me a set at a discount in return for a extensive review on the product, install, and any RD info I/we can provide. So stay tuned for some pic whoring and lengthy write ups.

Here is a copy and paste from the email he sent me, with a little bit of info on his business....


Glad to hear you're interested.  I've been in business for 2 1/2 years but for the first 8 or so months I didn't have anything to sell while development was taking place.  I'm located in Waterford, Michigan...for the moment.  I've had enough of the cold weather.  Mid next month I'll be moving down to Silver Springs, Florida.  Right now, I'm 95% of the company and my parents help out when they can.

I appreciate any additional attention you can draw to my company.  The more people buy, the more products I can release.  I have a dozen other products waiting to go into production.  I just need more sales to make it happen.

Add the item(s) to your cart, proceed as normal, enter _______ as your promo code and that'll take ____ off the order.  These are in-stock and ready to ship.  If you order in the next couple hours, they'll ship today.
