It's not about the length; it's about how you use it! laughing

Sounds like you just need to practise elsewhere; I mean, grinding at home is pretty fun but I'm sure there's a nice tidy ledge with low standards, in town somewhere, that you could be grinding on instead! laughing

A quarter of an inch isnt going to help you lock in. If you hit it that far away from the bike, you arent making the grind anyway.

Now for distance, yeah it’ll help you STAY locked in and give you a little more wiggle room, but this is really only apparent with plastics because its easy to slide off the grinding surface if your balance is off or you are setting up for another trick, especially on metal rails.

Long pegs actually slow you down on most concrete ledges. Grinding rails you want to grind close to your dropouts as possible anyway so I don't know how the long pegs help out. I can see long pegs being useful on locking crooks down that's about it

I feel like it's not even noticeable though, at least I haven't noticed any slow down since I switched from 4" to 4.5"

longer pegs give more wiggle room especially on crooks like you thought. Those and hard 180s got much easier since switching to longer pegs but obviously longer pegs won't magically make someone good at those tricks either.

heat treating and internal machining raises the price in the case of steel ones at least

edit: internal machining as in some pegs are butted on the inside

Just use your gfe's without the sleeves! I keep one in my bag in case want to do some stalls and I'm having trouble with the plastic sliding around. Since I switched to aluminum plastic sleeved pegs, I use some of my steel sleeved pegs, naked. I just don't like fucking up my ledges anymore, so I don't use steel pegs for concrete.

Also, longer pegs help lock in feebles and give you more room to steer if you land with your front wheel too deep on a ledge.

I’m pretty stoked on my 4.5” Doomsday pegs by Cult. They are pretty small in diameter so you’ll end up grinding a bit of your rear dropouts for the first session or so. Then it wears into a perfect fit.

I gotta say thoug, plastic is sweet because its so much quieter. I swear i can ride spots longer on plastic pegs because they don’t make a ruckus of noise.

Ya man! Plastic is the way to go for a little street discrete.
