placement of passenger foot pegs- should they always be higher than the driver's foot pegs for going around turns?
Ya know the sideways V on a hard tail? can I put footpegs on the bottom tube of the V as opposed to the top? this will give my passenger more leg room. The only thing is danger. Yes, physically, it can't be mounted there, but is it dangerous?

also I don't like the ones that stick up like the middle finger. I like to hide them with the lines of the frame as seen here so if I have Anderson pegs with have a clevis type mount how do I get them to be flush? Or do I have to get the round foot pegs? If so, what mount clamp would I use? I don't want something that will twist if we went over a bump and have the poor girl's feet get sucked into the chain area.

i mount mine high on the downtube like that pic.. make the girl feel like she's at the OBGYN and make her show some leg

I welded some tabs and have anderson copies, they piss me off sticking straight up too so I just don't loctite them and use a lockwasher so I can slide them parallel with the frame you just need to tighten em every few rides

Top seemed too high and bottom bar seemed too low on this shovel. Rolled a piece of tubing and mounted em on that.
