Ok so im 15 and cant get a job this summer due to the fact that im travelling a lot. My bike is a hunk of shit and i hat eit but im to broke to buy a new/parts. I just realized that i could probably make a mold of maybe odi's then fill them with silicone and mess with the mixture until they feel good then sell'em for cheap... Does anyone think this is a good idea? or am i crazy? if now then how would i start?

I have nothing against pegs at all, I don’t think you’re dumb if you ride pegs, I don’t care about your pegs, they are just pegs! What I do hate is the fact that every person in BMX hops on this bandwagon of three pegs, and beanies, and weed, and hop-over grinds… It’s just sad that the pros who influence kids are more worried about looking cool than the kids themselves!

This seems like a local treasure, if you could make a profit you got a great idea going assuming you know you have the tools.

So you're going to COPY another companies grips.
Are you an idiot?

If you're riding your bike to solely become sponsored one day, you're riding for all the wrong reasons.

i would buy a pair of grips from you if you did this

and how can you give him shit for copying odi? literally pretty much every company has a grip that is extremely similar or the same as odis, what makes odi different is the meterials used which makes em comfy, but seriously tons of companies have made a pair of grips with the ribbed pattern like odi

Actually ODI stole that idea from a different company, they're called mushroom grips because old school stock grips had a ribbed pattern that got puffy towards the middle like a mushroom shape.

I think you'd be better off selling wax or repairing bikes for quick cash. Be the guy at the park that always has tubes and tire levers and extra pedals and such.
Brand new grips only cost like $10, it's tough to have competitive pricing when your competition is already low. Don't forget the cost of materials

Back to making grips, make what ever you want, and if you think you can make money, go ahead. Silicon as grips... Do you like soft grips? Now, the rubber that grips are made out of does melt at about 350º so you can melt it in the home. Maybe you should make a grip out of wax/wood/clay what have you, and then make a mold from that so you can use your own design.
Judging from your spelling, you probably aren't smart enough to understand any of this, but this is the Krayton website.
http://www.kraton.com/products/Kraton_IR.php
But once you get a mold made, send them an email. And maybe have your mom spellcheck it for you first. See if they can help point you in the right direction, find the right polymer to use and where to get some.
I wanted to do this once, but mom said no melting rubber in the kitchen. Now I am inspired though, so you best watch out, you might get some competition.
