Adding a Toe Grip bump to footbed

Postby ed257 » Wed Jun 19, 2013 10:01 pm

I am thinking about adding a toe grip bump to my footbeds. I have a couple of idea, but wondering if anyone who already did this has a good method to share.

Thanks,

Ed

When I started, footpads had no toe grips so I screwed on lengths of garden hose which worked great.

i peeled up the pad, inserted a length of rope and glued the pad back over it. works great, just pick the diameter rope you want.
