Two of my sundays had them. I never used em I cut them off the first two. I havent messed with them on the third.

I would use them if they came integrated on my frame. I wouldn't pay to have them unless I really have a bad problem with my wheel slipping. Other than that they dont mean shit to me. Definitely a good idea though

they're all a bit different, but basically a screw or pin is held in place to push against your axle and keep your back wheel from slipping.

they came integrated on my fly lago 2. i mean they're pretty nice, but honestly they never really made a huge difference to me.
i wouldn't buy one aftermarket tho, partly because of pegs and partly because there's just not much need.

I really liked the ones on my Sunday Ian. Too bad they snapped though. Unless theyre integrated into the frame I wouldnt bother with them

This, you don't really need them on a bmx bike. Like every one says if it comes integrated its cool but other than that I just have my chain set up as short as possible and tighten the shit out of my bolts and it doesn't slip.
