I'm gonna get 4 Merritt gfe pegs when I build up my next bike so I was wondering what's the difference between 4.25 and 4.75 riding wise like what does it change while you are riding.

Those lengths are child’s play. Order some 12” pegs from Bulletpup. Steezy

Don’t put 25.4 bars in a 22.2 stem.

Last year I went from 4" to 4.5" and I'll never go back to shorter pegs

pros:

-easier to lock into and stay in crooks. My crooks improved so much after getting longer pegs. I struggled crooking small down rails (not handrails) but now I can do them easily and have crooked a few handrails

-hard 180s are easier. I'm not sure of the mechanics behind it but I got better at hard 180s out too. that or I just magically got better at them

-more room to grind on, so if you're wobbling around on like a rail or something you'll have a tiny bit of extra room before slipping off




cons:

-paranoia of catching your pegs on the underside of a rail. I never thought about that until someone I'm friends with pointed it out, but if you're like me and usually ride parallel to whatever it is you're grinding you typically get pretty close to it when hopping onto it so you might clip your peg on the way up if you add that extra bit. I know I've chinked up a few times when hitting rails but luckily haven't fully clipped it yet. I try not to think about it because I know it's mostly a mental thing but still

-your socket might not fit it anymore. I know the Animal tool just BARELY reaches my female axle bolts anymore. so be cautious of that. no one wants to be on a road trip or something only to realize their old socket/extension no longer fits

I love my 4.8 venoms. They just feel really locked in.

Lol thanks!

I run 4.75" pegs and they feel so much better. Once you get used to the little bit extra clearance you need when pedaling around you will enjoy the feeling of extra security with whatever grind you choose.

Only thing that I notice is I occasionally get caught on the undersides of lips and rails but I also never did rails when I ran 4" pegs so...maybe they arent that much different.
