I think my first set of pegs were 4.5 inches. All the pegs I ride now are ~4". I don't really see a point in going smaller since it's not really opening up any new tricks that weren't available before, but I don't hate on those that choose to use them.

just to tag onto this:

the longer pegs i do feel you can lock in a little better depending on the grind, like feebles and smith grinds. they just give you more play before you settle into the grind. i used to have a set of some Animal OG pegs, and by OG, i mean like the first year the sons of bitches came out, and they were at the 4.5" mark as well. right now i have Kink Light chromo pegs that sit at just under 4" (100mm = 3.937"), and they can still get into the grind, but you don't have as much play before your grinds finally lock in.

but that's just me and how it feels in my case. some people may have a different opinion or noticed a different feel.

I like long pegs. I'm purposely running 4.25 pegs since you lock in more, feel more comferterble, and gives you more lerverage when you want it.

Try those OG fit 112 mm. That's what I'm ridding. They slide good and lighter then those Animal OG ones

I don't really notice a big difference between a 4" and 4.5" peg. Never tried anything shorter so I can't answer that one.

I still have the 1 OG kink lite pegs and chain. Man there was weight back then. Now that I'm older I do like the weight deference. But only on certain things. Not a Fan of TI stuff
