Okay who in this forum knows how to do great curb grinds. I do, and i gotta say, there way cool. I got these pegs off of a guy that used to do bmx a while back, then got hurt real bad from and , and so he gave me his most treasured pegs. And there nothin that i've ever seen before, they actually ROLL while u grind with em. I don't know where he got them from, cuz i asked and he said he'll never tell. Whatever that means. Anyways So i'm going down the street and decited to give em a try, and they work awesome. i mean they have this kind of like rubber on em that keeps them from slipping to much, I mean they slip, but not like ur regular metal. they stay on the side of whatever ur grinding. Cuz trust me, i've fell lots of times trying to do a long grind, down rails at college, to picknik tables. eh,,, i wish i could tell ya'll the name of these great pegs. If they don't make these kind of grindin pegs, they really should it'll really help keep ppl from getting hurt, cuz i have no0t fell once since i tried them out. There out of this world kinda good. they have sealed bearings. But the bad part is, he said when they dicide to go out, then there's nothin u can do for them but toss em, which i'm not doing, I'm keeping these babys. they have an engraved mark on them, that says CA Customs. So i'm guessing there our of CA. now ya'll might know about these pegs, and r already using them, but i have never seen pegs like these before. There freaking awesome. If there is such a thing out there PLEASE tell me where i can pick up another pair. And i've already looked at dans-comp. and they don't have these kind of pegs. They have some that r close. but not these kind.

My mate once had something similar that had a rotating section on them, I hated them as they were massive aluminium flatland type pegs yet designed so you could grind. I found they were ok ish if you managed to get the rotating bit on the grind surface, but 9 times out of 10 you would snag the knurled ali bit and just stop dead.

i remember when rolling pegs sounded like a good idea. there were a bunch of companies and all have gone out of buisness since. all the pegs were expensive, were weak, and lasted about an eighth the time of normal pegs. and annyway, these days, people would be concerned with the weight(i'm guessing they weigh more than an average peg). not many experienced riders worry about slipping out of grinds, so normal pegs work good for the rest of us. i bet they're just a one-off set from back in the day made by some bmxer at a fabrication shop or somehting. eventually, they will break, then you will have to learn how to grind for real, so enjoy the time that you have them i guess...

i dont like the sound of rolling pegs neither. once they brake u will have to learn them the hard way so enjoy grinding.

They're not that great for foot on peg tricks either, eg: hang 5, peg manual, rocket tricks...

it breaks the old traditions. just like how freecoasters kill fakies. i dont think that would be considered a grind anymore if ur just rolling. and isnt that a lil dangerous?

ya iunno soon we wont have to bunny hop we'll jus push a button and you'll hop 5 feet in the air. well maybe not but you get what im saying. jus like foam pits it takes some of the challenge out of riding. if bmx or anything were safe then averybody would do it thats why pro's are so repected. dont get me wrong foam pits are not all bad but the fun part is that its hard and not everybody can do it.
