┬*I think that some of the reasons for the discussion┬* may be that not all HT shifters are designed the same way .[img]/forums/images/emoticons/emoticonsxtra/grinner.gif[/img].. My Markland HT┬* ┬*and boards were designed for the 1200... boards are nice and flat ... and wide... and┬* the "brake" side has a┬* peg for the heel, which puts your feet at the same height on both sides... I love mine, and┬* rarely scrape the boards.. (they flip┬* up┬* quite a ways) ┬* ┬*The Markland setup gives me three places to rest my feet :┬* Both at same height on the HT, and┬* on the brake-heel peg....... #2┬* on the boards , if at cruising speed...┬* and #3...┬* on the highway pegs for that laid back cruisin' feeling .... I am sure I would NOT┬* like them ,if the boards were narrower, if the boards did NOT flip up... If there was NOT┬* a brake "heel"┬* post ....┬* ┬* ┬*┬* ┬*┬* ┬*┬* ┬*Sign me┬* ┬*"for them !!
