Keep hearing about these Cult Butter pegs... and I need new pegs.. go to Dan's and its like $20 each!???

gotd@m....


What am I missing here?

Actually it seems $20 is the standard price for pegs.. jeebus!


I guess I'm tripping mainly cuz I lucked out and got a almost new 2012 Kink Liberty for $100 off of Craig's..


If not the Cult Butter pegs, what else yall recommend?

Shadow Little Ones. Inexpensive and buttery as hell. Shit ton of anti roller pins for long lasting life. Ive been running them on concrete ledges for about a half a year now and haven't had to rotate them yet, still slide great and show no signs of deformation.

Separate plastic sleeves for $6 a pop if youre interested in running plastic, though metal(chromoly) is the way to go!

Are anti roll pins still thought of as useful these days? I've ran my old four pegs for years without anitroll pins and they've never even "rolled" a centimeter

Be smart and just buy metal pegs and use wax, classic combo and timeless fun, at least on my end

Most pegs are heat treated chromoly with adds on to the price but the amount of machining can affect the price as well , also the butting of certain areas (Like for example , some pegs have a side for grinding and the top is thinner , to save weight) adds to it. Mind you , alot if just the logo.

Here in Canada , a pair of pegs will be around 50$ so if you want a 4 peg setup and hubguards , you can expect 150$ upwards for it all.

No one here buys used pegs? That's the best route to take for pegs, I mean they're pegs whens the last time you've personally seen someone break a peg? Ever? If you happen to be the one person who claims you've seen it happen, how many more times have you seen it happen?

Pegs range from $13+ even without sleeves, so for all 4, at least $50, according to online prices like Danscomp. Just go with good pegs. The newer sleeve thing a while back just leads to more money spending. But hey, it's not fitting to bring a piece of wax every damn where you go.

Yup, new pegs aren't actually cheap. And hub guards make it even worse

Cult butters only really feel that smooth on rails.

I don't rate them for cement or brick.

I rate the bonedeth diet grinders

$20 is nothing, we pay £20+, thats £80-100 for 4 which is $135-$170 JUST for pegs no guards

Compare these apples to your oranges...

A 1.250" (31.75mm) True Temper double butted Supertherm Tube costs about $25 and is about 26" long. In other words, here's a tube of steel with several manufacturing processes that costs relatively the same as a little peg.

Possible conclusions:

A. There's lots of profit in pegs.
B. Most of the cost in pegs comes from manufacturing processes.

Go to a local shop and see if they have take off pegs you can get cheap. Sometimes when a Bike comes with pegs, people don't always want them, so they usually just pile up in a box somewhere. They are heavy, BUT cheap and last a while.

My local shop sells them for like 10 bucks a pair. They are basic steel pegs that come off completes.

I've seen plastics break and like 2 metal pegs EVER. That's since 1999. Not a bad average considering I have ridden with hundreds of people.

Still. THe metal ones were just UBER worn. Plastics were a fat kid on a cold day.

Odyssey Mpegs? 15 dollars for two pegs?

|

6/24/2014 7:49 AM

If you want a plastic peg, UNITED STEALTH PEGS. 18 a peg and they last way longer and slide better than most plastics would. Plus the center thing is chromoly. Get these if you want the best possible one. Its slightly cheaper but way worth it.

Diameter: 1.3" (34mm)
