Have the long and straight and folding aforementioned RGM lever on 2 bikes and love them.
I'm fairly sure I wouldn't be successfully kicking, as I am, with the short, rigid stock unit.
Go for RGM!

I have no idea how you manage gear changes with this set up! Unless you have feet in excess of size 15 UK and an extension on the toe of your boot!

Do you also ride a trials bike? Or perhaps you have perfected the 'Doctor's Dangle'?

:oops:

Just confirms he couldn't reach it either! The picture I commented on is pre somewhat complex 'solution' ;)

I'm not sure how, but I might have gone for something more like the works Nortons with pivot points welded on to the gearbox cover!

But that'll work. Even for my little feet!

The photo I posted earlier was while I was making the linkage - the purpose of the post was the show rearset peg with RGM kicker.
