Money is currently the main reason I'm without pegs. It definitely makes you look at your terrain with a creative eye. It's helping me come up with some new ideas that I'll try when pegs are back on the bike.

Enjoy life and stay happy.

to me riding with out pegs is more fun cause u can be more creative with street spots. like my boys are always grinding this super narrow ledge but me i decide 1 day to try to hop on the supper narrow ledge, ride the whole ledge and 180 off it, then i tryed manualing the whole ledge which took like 7 or 8 tries but i got it

but sometimes its just so tempting to look at a nice ledge/rail just to grind on...

Its pretty much just practice. Dont be afraid to throw all your weight forward till you can find a good balance point, then once you find it just practice getting to that point. Trust me no one really has them dialed (except for shane rieder). Im good at them and i can only nose manual like 3 1/2 parking spaces on a really good day.

you just have to find that point of balance.
and dont be afraid to go over the bars. once youve gotten past that just find your point of balance and practice. i can ussually nose manny like 2 parking spaces but ive gotten close to 4. its just all about balnce and practice.

6/7/2009 3:31 PM

LESS broken chains. You can still break it, it's just less likely if you aren't grinding.
