I hate watching bmx now, plastic pegs have made bmx just not cool or gnarly anymore. It sounds like a toy. I don't mind the plastic pegs when it's riders with a sloppy style like brandon begin, but with people with dialed bikes and super clean styles like garret reynolds, it just makes bmx look like shit.

Apart from the lack of metal-on-metal sound, it makes little difference to me.


I do like that sound though!

I don't think plastic pegs ruined bmx but it did make videos more tame for sure. Personally I'm getting a little tired of getting kicked out of spots bc of guards hearing metal pegs

I think they’re ruining the environment more than bmx

People's dumbass opinions on what BMX should and shouldn't be are what's ruining it. Quit whinging about it and go ride your damn bike...

Imagine thinking Garret Reynolds, one of the best street riders currently, throwing whips everywhere, is ruining BMX.

Imagine thinking Brandon Begin, with his shitty turtle speed peg chinks, whose entire fame is based on his drug-addict lifestyle and retarded tennis balls in wheels and not on his lackluster level of riding, is good for BMX.

Imagine thinking BMX is cool and gnarly because of peg sound and being sloppy, instead of being technical and going big.

Imagine posting that shit thread.

There are still plenty of riders riding metal pegs, there are so many different styles of riding these days, nothing’s ruined at all. Watch what you like and ignore the rest.

Ride everything

We never had plastic pegs back in the day...I got some this summer

I think they are overhyped, I dont think they slide much better except for on rails

If you are worried about the sound...put some headphones on, you wont hear metal or plastic

Im not a fan of many song choices on many edits but without sound I can still enjoy the riding.

I agree, a bad song can sometimes ruin the vibe of an edit but that can be said for all styles of music. No matter what song you choose, someone is going to love it or hate it.

Maybe for you, to each their own, I don't like crap. Infact I don't like a lot of things.

I can enjoy a clip without any music, just hearing the bikes/ tyres and tricks noise is enough.

^^^^^^^

This... I mean I'm ok if the music track is not one of my choice, but I'd much rather hear the natural sounds of whats going on.
Same with
gun/shooting vids,
Trucks or Cars with Airbags or Hyrdos...

I want to hear the action sounds of whats going on there...

Sometimes I think BMX is too image obsessed these days. Cult and Shadow parts, black baggy cuffed chinos. Like everything has to be edgy and gritty. But then I look back to when I started riding and you had to have the skin tight jeans + t-shirts and run slammed seat and 2 pegs. Then I realize that BMX has always been trendy. The mass of people will always follow whatever the top few creative people are doing at the moment. If tomorrow Simone Barraco or Garrett Reynolds starts riding pegless, in about 6 months you'll see every rider with no pegs on.

Moral of the story, keep it freestyle and do your own thing. Fuck whatever the crowd is doing.
