Pegs are great. Its harder to get into manuals, but now i can get them farther.but now i cant get gturns and 180s or hop as high. Should i start lifting more? Or what should i do

I ride for my papou.
Cats got 9 lives I got four.

I never had a problem when I decided to ride 4 pegs it made no difference I was still able to do everything fine. It's all in your mind.

I remember trippin on pegs too, the first time I put them on. You'll get used to them eventually. The bit of extra weight will give you a good work out. Your body will come around.

I didn't feel the weight of the pegs but just seeing them on my bike messed me up on certain stuff. Just keep riding with them and after time it will be like they're not even there

How are your pegs affecting your manual? You saying because of the extra weight? I never noticed a difference. Just don't like em on trails I've caught my ankle under back peg once or twice n ate shit

It's a mental thing. Pegs literally do nothing noticeable weight wise.

If pegs make your balance go off doing 180's you should stop riding LOL

I mean, if you're Kyle Baldock, thats different. But seriously......no difference flat.

even baldock rode pegs for a while..

I have nothing against pegs at all, I don’t think you’re dumb if you ride pegs, I don’t care about your pegs, they are just pegs! What I do hate is the fact that every person in BMX hops on this bandwagon of three pegs, and beanies, and weed, and hop-over grinds… It’s just sad that the pros who influence kids are more worried about looking cool than the kids themselves!

I've wanted to talk about my goofy-footed things for a while now. I naturally grind left but it's hard to swing my rear end on to the right. I naturally hop onto my right but don't grind right, it's just easier to hop on. Anybody catch my drift? I'm boutta run 4 pegs sometime soon.. And fuck female axles, they scare the shit outta me now. Especially how most female front hubs have cones that are press-fitted. They blow out so fuckin easy cause riding pegs, you gotta tighten that shit like hell. Worse case scenario would have to be riding a male front hub again like the old days.

ehh if anything toss another peg on the other side in the front, its mainly in your head but ive heard this helps "even" it out... like you see the evenness in the front, so its like more easy to manual and shit

For me, having my brake setup on the right and pegs on the left, i feel like i can maintain balance, it's all in your head, i just think my lever weighs more than my two pegs so it equals itself out.

Thats why I run 4 pegs. I didn't like 2 because it felt unbalance, and besides, I like the whole 4 peg idea. 4 pegs are awesome.

+1 i originally put 4 pegs on because when i sat down id like to put my right foot on a peg (but i ran left side pegs) so i threw on a 3rd peg and my OCD kicked in and had to have the 4th

Thats why I run 4 pegs. I didn't like 2 because it felt unbalance, and besides, I like the whole 4 peg idea. 4 pegs are awesome.

+1 i originally put 4 pegs on because when i sat down id like to put my right foot on a peg (but i ran left side pegs) so i threw on a 3rd peg and my OCD kicked in and had to have the 4th

Yeah, my CDO kicked in aswell. I like my bike to look clean as possible.
