I'm currently on a trip around the Balkans and two days ago my left foot peg broke off. I had been standing up a fair bit (probably not more than a couple of miles in total over the whole trip), and the roads are not great, but I still feel like this shouldn't happen. It was lucky I as just adjusting my weight, rather than standing, as I was going about 60mph. Fortunately, I managed to pull over and retrieve the peg from the very busy road. The bolt had completely sheered off and was stuck inside the bracket. I wasn't sure at the time if it needed to be unscrewed or I could just pull it out, but either way, it wasn't budging. I tried hitting a screwdriver with a rock, nothing. I had to go and find a mechanic, who also tried hitting it out - nothing, then tried with a mallet - nothing. In the end he had to drill it out. Now it's replaced with whatever bolt he happened to have lying around that fit. Great! Anyone got any suggestions for an upgrade?
