I don't want to try it, my pegs not move, I flip over my handle bars, break my neck and die.

Well

Try it while having a friend tape it?
Wear football pads?
Convince a junkie to trade you his rock for your bike, as soon as you die he can have it...

hit it fast enough and you'll grind. hit it too slow and your pegs will just sieze up, then you'll flip. put on pads and go for it, trial and error is the only way.

dude just go for it...even if you do go kinda slow your pegs won't stick to the damn thing..the momentum of the bike even going slow will make it slide just a little bit....just don't think about it and go for it...

Well, I was going to go do it, and it has just been raining all day so I havn't been able to go out. I thought it would be smarter to ask and get alittle information before trying it.

I am wondering one thing though, I am going to do it, just wondering this:
-If you jump up onto something, and your front peg hits it, wont your back end fall down, or are you suppose to hit both pegs at the same time. So that means you gotta get alot of air and slam your front down to level it out when you get your back end up-

Sorry if it seems stupid, I havnt grinded anything yet.

Whoa! Are you about to try to double peg grind on a cement ledge as a beginner? I have been grinding for a long time and still dont think of double peg grinds on cement. Double pegs are easiest on a quarterpipe. You want to start out with feeble grind(back peg on the ledge and front tire on the ledge). To feeble, approach the ledge at a comfortable speed at a slight angle and hop. The rest is trial and error. Getting off a feeble took me forever to learn because i ride a lot by myself. Once on the feeble, you can either wait until you stop or jump off while sliding. Waiting gives you more time to prepare. Hop off the ledge and spin just enough to slap your tire against the side of the ledge and your done. You also want to lean on your front tire when grinding for extra sliding and smoothness. And hop just high enough to get on the ledge(overhopping results in not good things). Now go watch some porn or go riding.

yea don't go for the double peg first...start out with what that guy said...a feeble...easiest of the grinds and most usefull for street riding....

eventually though you can do double pegs even on cement...slides when i do it....

ya go 4 the feeble. and speed is your friend when u grind the faster u go the easyer it is to grind. and less time u have to balence on what you are grinding on. and also if you are worried about not sliding add some wax that kinda helps a bit. well good luck with it man.
