So then, rearsets, what are they all about, eh? One big argument for fitting a set of rearsets to your pride and joy, old or new, is simply that they look cool. Sticking lovely bits of machined yumminess on your bike is an addictive habit after all, and rearsets are one area most folk tend to look at and consider at some point or another.

Then there’s the fact that there is ordinarily a lot of adjustability built in; from peg placement to often being able to adjust the toe-lever positioning too, allowing one to tailor them specifically to you and your plates of meat.

TEST THE BEST IN THE BEST TEST Yes, it’s that time of year again when we all decamp to some far flung track and spend two days living the life of Riley; burning fuel, razzing tyres, scuffing sliders and scoffing pizzas.
