Yes, there is probably a ton of plastic pegs forums...but times have changed
A whole mess of pro's from ben lewis to the ones i hang out with run plastic pegs now
There used to be a lot of hate on plastic pegs but now people seem to run them
What do you guys think of plastic pegs now a days?

I don't get why pros like them but they slide REALLY well.

Yeah idk haha my friend who used to ride for cardinal before they died runs platics now...idk he just said "no need for wax, slide better, and saving ledges" so i guess tht is the whole deal...i just dont like how plastic slides on metal (shit)

I noticed this as well! I think its just a trend amongst pros though.
One person ran them and their friends started trying it and pretty much all pros now do it.
Lots of kids hated on them since a few people would say "if it's not steel it's not real," but now I'm kinda waiting to see what kids are gonna do/say now.

I personally only planned on getting pvc pipe sleeves or shadow little plastic sleeve ones for night seshs or quickie grinds for when I know I wont have wax or enough wax on a tough legde, but I'll always run steel pegs.

I just got the stolen thermalites and they ride amazing, super light, stick when i need them to for stalls or slide forever on rails and concrete. Have barely made a dent in them as well.

i ride metals but i was actualy thinking of getting pc piping and hammer them over my metal pegs

well in florida there are actually a couple of parks that won't let you ride unless you have plastic pegs or plastic sleeves so i kinda have to have plastic pegs and to add i really don't see a difference and honestly i feel like plastics slide better...

after hearing all the hype about them from the large amount of (godly) pros who have converted, it TOTALLY makes me want to try them, but it won't ever happen cause economically it is illogical, having to buy a new set of pegs every month or so just doesn't make sense for an average rider

|

3/15/2012 3:44 PM

they are really light and apparently slide really well which all makes sense but I stay real and ride shadow pegs which are just as light and indestructible. plastic is for pussys if you want to be a pussy just get a plastic sleeve

suppossedly that doesnt work very well because the piping cracks and crumbles....

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! It’s crazy!-Trey Jones

i think i wanna get some after i get some walking around money. i never grind hard, and its bassically all park, so i think i could make them last

and wieght savingssssssssssssssssssssss

I dont grind very much, when i do its not very long either. i mostly use them for stalls which they work perfect for and small little grinds. They feel amazing to me and dont weigh anything.

I had the Gsport Plegs. They were good on wood, and were quiet, but if you got stuck, you stuck like a mother fucker.

You don't get the satisfying 'chink' of the grind. and they are awful for street. I had some before that came with my complete (years ago '08/09) and hit a few marble ledges and they began to flat.
