EDIT: MORE PICTURES!

I've been playing around with my pegs, and I've come to the conclusion that pegless grinds are fun, but not pegless smiths, since when you miss, you eat whatever you're grinding. I've settled at one peg for now

Post: Eastern
Barends: Metal Wedge-Style. I'm not sure what they're called. My friend gave them to me 3 years ago.
Peg(s): Eastern Bird. You can catch me riding 0, 1, or 2 pegs. Tried 3 and didn't like it, and used to ride 4 years ago, but I've settled at 1.

Incredibly comfy. I used to run 3 fingers of post, but now that my seat is wider, easier to pinch for suicide no handers, and more comfy, I decided to bump it up to a full fist. Seat's great. I love the feel of it, as well as that comfort.

Thanks man I've been riding for so long I've tried every peg arrangement there is, and I went back and forth between 2 pegs and none. I just kind of figured out that one peg is perfect for me because I love peg less grinds, but missing a peg less smith at speed is deadly and I learned that by getting tossed over the bars repeatedly.

I'd highly, highly recommend anything I have, especially the wheels. I've had the rag her to rollcage for about 3 years now laced 4x and I'm pretty ruthless on wheels, as I blew the shit out of my last set. You really just can't go wrong with gsport.

You can ask them to do 3x or 4x. Both ways are perfectly acceptable with 36h, but 3x is easier to replace broken spikes and keep true, but 4x is slightly stronger. The way I started with peg less grinds was the fact that I would be peg less at spots with my friends who ride 4 pegs, so a lot of the spots were ledges, as well as at the skatepark. I got curious because mike aitken had always been my idol, and I've seen him do stalls peg less. I tried a few smiths to start, then went to double pegs, and then feebles.

Thanks dude. I haven't tried hang 5's in a long time. They were just too scary, to be honest, when I tried them before, but I'm trying to get better at nose manuals since I think they're cooler than 5's.

I really like it, except for that small ass tire in the back. Why such a huge difference. Why not 2.25 and a 2.10?

Mixed up the quotes lol
Anyway yeah nose mannys look much better, i'm pretty good at hang 5 i can do quiet long ones i'm just too scared to hop on to the while going over something like those small "ledges "(Curb height) but yeah once you get your balance point you should be good and also if you go too much forward just jump over the bars
I need to improve nose manuals, not that good with those sexy bitches

Haha I get that all the time... I used to run really small tires front and back, 1.95 would always be my front, 1.85 and 1.95 in the back. I tested around, trying eastern curb monkey 2.3 front and fuquay(Spelling?) flyer 2.3 in the back, and it was too big and WAY too slow.. I thought, because I was stupid, that a 2.25 faf was smaller, so I got that in the front and tried another faf 2.25 in the back, then an animal asm 2.1, then momentum 2.0, then aitken 1.95 k-lyte, and I always loved the smaller tire in the back more, which is why I kept getting smaller. I did, however, like the feel of a big beefy, grippy faf that I could run at 110 psi so it wasn't as slow as a big tire usually is, and I decided to go 1.95 in the back again, because that's the smallest size faf and I wanted to try them out as more than a front. Long answer. Sorry. Had to be thorough haha

Woops!
Yeah for nose manuals, I'm just afraid of going over the bars in that position. Like, I've said it before, but I do pegless smiths here and there, and I'm not afraid of going over on missing one. With a nose manual it's different. I can bonk like a champ, and nose manual short manny pads, but that's only with good speed, and I'm way too afraid to hit a ledge above like 8 inches with a nose manual going that fast haha
