@UKJ asked me where I had seen @zlymex s pedal extension photos.  Well I found them in this thread

@EU GUY has some toe risers that I thought were neat too.

 edit. Can't find his toe wedges but here are his version of pedal extensions.  I believe I saw his wedges on his own sight, which must have been in a link somewhere.

Nice work. Thanks for the input.  There are quite a few sharpish edges there; the plate it self and the ends of your support beams.  Has this design bitten you yet?  Does that diamond plate grip well? Looking at it, I guess the rivet heads do a lot of the gripping.

I would for sure "pad" the edges as you might wish you had after a deep cut?

I did this with fairly stiff but still flexable auto hose after having drill and tapped many holes around pedal edge and screws are inside tube.

The problem is the stock KS14c pedals are just not long enough, but I will figure out how to extend somehow.

I grinded the edges of the plate to give a rounded shape, so no risk of cut. For aluminum brackets, I have broken the angles with a hammer to avoid any risk of injury. The adhesion is good in dry weather, but if it is wet, it slips.

This looks really interesting.  I have no skills and no tools for this kind of stuff, but maybe a machine shop could help.  My feet are American size 12 1/2, and the pedals on EUC's look really small to me.  Plus it seems to me it's easier tor finesse balance on the balls of my feet, and I'm thinking the usual pedals won't allow for someone with big feet to use his feet properly.

Please fill us in on all your ideas, folks.  I'm speaking from ignorance now, but believe I will have to make some changes when I get my first EUC.

Test fitted the new 26cm pedal cover version on my kid´s wheel, which has the same pedals. Fits very well. I´ll now add some anti slipping material to the surface and then install them on my own wheel. I´ll report once I have made a test ride.

Ok finally some impressions after a first 15min test ride with my new 26 cm long pedal extensions. The difference compared to the regular bare pedals is huge and even compared to my previous version, there´s a clear improvement. I didn´t experience any ground contact issues even in tight turns, but I have yet to test them in more demanding situations. For regular everyday (non-extreme) riding, they are definitely ok.
