Ok to start this off i am not looking for"oh just be yourself don't worry about it" or any other gay crap like that.


Do you ever feel pressure to only ride a certain thing.. Like if you ride 4 pegs do you feel wierd or awkward going to the spark and hitting the box? Like i have a default for my bike setup(hence why i change it so much)

0 pegs park rat or smooth flow type(brakes/no brakes no difference)
2 pegs still park but a bit more well rounded.
3 pegs big style big tricks big gaps(think dennis enarson or tyler fernengel)
4 pegs street demon.. only ride street. ride 3 mph and use every peg in every line(think iz pulido or brandon begin)

ANd i seriously change it constantly to fit into those criteria.. I cant ride park with 4 pegs and i cant ride street with no pegs.. i dont know it is just wierd.

i can certainly agree with that last part.

To me, pegs say nothing of the rider except how they actually grind...or if the pegs are just there for giving your buddy a ride on the back.

No lol. I do prefer riding without pegs, theres a noticeable difference for me. But truly, I dont give a fuuuccccckkkkkk. I would rather use my pegs AT the park than spend the 2minutes to take them off while I could be riding.

Its not like people are going to pick on you about that
"HAHAHAHA!! What a poser! What kind of park rat are you?! Using pegs. Hahaha loser. I bet you dont even flip whip bro"

I will take my pegs off before trails though. Unless its some dope ass trails with ledges and rails, you look like an idiot riding pegs at trails. And pegs will take a gnarly chunk out of the jumps if you bail haha.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

i look for how trashed their pegs are, if they're new i assume they're some squid who wants to be a hardcore rider, if they're beat i'll assume they know what they're doing.

i just ride pegless and a rear brake everywhere cuz thats just my riding style and thats how ive always had my bike. but i cant help but assume a guy with 4 pegs at a park will just be hitting ledges and rails all day, until i see him boost a quarterpipe and be like "well shit, i shouldnt jugde a book by its cover"

I just recently took off my pegs. The only time I ever used them was for stalls on sub boxes at parks and feebles and smiths on really low boxes. Basically I had no use for them. Plus doing front pedal feeble stall things on quarters is more fun than legit feebles for me

I never hit it, I don't think I ever come even remotely close to doing so. Now if I rode a peg on the switch side in the rear, then I'd probably be hitting it haha. Thing's 5 years old now

I also just recently took off my pegs, ain't shit around here to grind on, plus it looks cleeean

i took my pegs off to lol.. I suck at riding ramps and only ever do grinds so figure if im pegless i have to ride ramps... or get really creative either way its a plus.

Who the fuck cares if you judge someone for his bike than you're just as bad as a scooter. I ride 3 pegs. I can barely grind ! I have them for astetics and when I do grind I can , plus the 2 top pegs let me muck with hang five and try some flatland or crooked grinds. I run a coaster , doesn't mean I'm street . A setup for riding street or park. Thats how I like it as long as it's dialed I really could care less. Ride what you like.

Thanks haha honestly so true. I've seen pegless people destroy guys who are "street" and even had some guy on a DJ come to a park and show everyone up. BIKES DONT MATTER.
