^ uh.... Freecoaster's are very popular among non flatland riders. Most flatlanders don't run brakes, so, no gyros. 8 piece bars aren't tech, they're just 8 piece bars. many people ride 4 pegs. some run 3, some 2. many people run female hubs. Also, the ... more »

Plastic pegs don't destroy ledges. Parks are made to be ridden. this thread is silly.

Please tell use when 21 inch frames were not well received and by whom? I can not agree with that as I know it, from my perspective, to be false. we had 10 inch bars in the 80's. And no one complained. Like I said, I'm all for innovation and I've been ... more »

I had axle pegs on my bike way before folding fork pegs came on bikes. And I always hated the location of fork pegs and frame standers. There is a reason they don't exist on new bikes anymore. Like I said, PROVE ME WRONG. Make some rolling pegs and see ... more »

BMX doesn't need anything new. Maybe pegs that roll or something. or seats with little rollers in them. Instead of crying over nothing new being created, go ride your bike. Haro couldn't come up with anything new so they went back to what they did 35 ... more »

Wonder what happened to the OP's prototype product? What issues does a rolling peg solve?

ROLLING PEGS HAVE ALREADY BEEN INVENTED. They didn't sell the first time around. What makes one think they would do well today?

actually, on the subject of brakes.... U brakes work really well but I think there are a few folks that want better brakes. Dirt jumps have never been as big as they are today and U-brakes were never intended to stop a 200+ man jumping 25+ feet on a ... more »

1.125 HT/Forks are an improvement . smaller gearing / cassette hubs are am improvement to freewheel. 990 brakes were an improvement to caliper brakes. laid back seat posts existed because frames were too small. It was a simple "solution" to allow a full ... more »

Make one and let's see how they do. IMO, based on being part of the bmx/freestyle scene for 35+ years, a peg that rolls (they've already been invented by the way 'juice pegs') won't make it or last in modern bmx. But feel free to prove me wrong.

First 20 inch bike was a Schwinn Stingray, Jr. in 1977. I purchased a Redline MX II frame and fork in 1982 and swapped out most of the parts from the Schwinn. I stole the seat from my brothers ten speed so I didn't have to use my old banana seat from ... more »

Pretty sure they don't weld their own frames. but go down there and find out. then report back.

My tip is to spend some time digging with the guy who digs out there. You'll get far more help that way than from the internet. He may even offer to lend a hand and help you with the lines/jumps you're working on.
