GP Shift

How many of you ride the streets w/ GP shift?

I hear that once you ride GP you will not want to go back ?

Gilles rearsets are around 5 bills but, I've read nothing but good things about these.

I just dont know how long it would take to adjust to GP style

I don't see a problem with getting rearsets befor etaking a school to be hoenst. I say that because it would be best he gets the bike where h'es comfortable on it first then learn to go fast......

Wish I could find some used rearsets. The stock pegs on the F3 are way too low.

If you have to replace them I guess it would be a good time to upgrade, but just changing them because you want GP shifting, i guess if you have the money do it, they will not make you go faster i think. I did buy some pro-tek but because i needed to replace them and they are 1 inch higher and further back.
