Rear brake lever sets too low.

Does anyone else have this problem? My rear brake foot lever sets a good 2 inches (12mm) below my foot. My foot is almost vertical when I press it. I've been looking for a spacer or something to bring it up but I haven't been able to find anything?

yes yes yes ... exactly my problem... 1st bike ever that its not adjustable. (bl00dy cost engineers)
I've just cut a very thick bit of hydralic hose( the length of the front of the pedal) and then sliced it along its length and slipped it over.
It gives about 7mm but still not ideal for me.
As you say it really needs a good (safe ) spacer.... Jon.

So I'm not the only one.

Since day one I found the brake pedal to be a little low and since that same day I've been procrastinating about looking into it...
Now you guys tell me there is no adjustment possible. Thanks: I can stop thinking about it now!

After-market pedal... in a far future, maybe ?

Fixing this issue was a side benefit of fitting a peg lowering kit, brake pedal to lever height now as you would expect.

Why use your rear brake foot lever ....... I only use my front brake 😉😉😉😉
Just kidding.
This is an issue I havenít noticed and I have been doing a lot of kilometers on winding roads where you use your brakes a lot.
Next time I will try to find out if this is an issue for me.

They're the SW-Motech EVO footpegs. Still very happy with them, the extra legroom is welcome.
