Well I took my pegs of and found I'm still doing all my grinds pegless like ice double peg Smith so I kept my hub guards on. My question is does any one have experience with the the animal nub nuts do they wear fast how do they feel so on. Or should I just get 165 mm profiles right now pegless grinding doesn't bother me and I'm having fun with it.

I believe in hub guard protection

If you can pegless grind fine there's no point in buying tiny axle extenders, IMO.

But yes, short cranks will solve the problem of your foot hitting the rear pegs.

Definitely keep the hub guards and I think those mini pegs/bolts have practicality for someone wanting a bit more surface area without the get-in-the-way nature of regular pegs while rolling around. I think some of the mini pegs have a non-standard threading that only work with Profile hubs though...not sure but I remember something about that.

They’ll no longer be pegless grinds if you use mini pegs 😉

I like them ... you have to grind more precise than with regular pegs, they will last longer than regular alloy-nuts, not every curb or ledge will be grindable but Chris Silva can do everything with these nuts ...

What's the point of taking your pegs off if you're gonna do the same grinds? Might as well spare your frame the wear and tear and run pegs

i think his feet were hitting the pegs while pedaling due the the short CS and 175mm cranks.

Saves the annoyance of hitting your feet off the pegs and adds a bit of extra challenge.

Trying smaller cranks may help, but nothing will help more than just riding it. You will adapt. You will stop clipping your foot on that peg.

I wear sz13 and have rode as short as a 12.6" back end with 4 pegs and have never had issues with clipping my heel for longer than a day. It's all about foot placement & positioning while you're pedaling.

That said, I got 10x more respect for anyone grinding on micro pegs instead of half-foot long tubes with plastic sleeves lmao

Wait... if you already had negative respect for hubshell thrashers, and multiply that by -5, doesn’t that become positive respect? Or are you multiplying the 10x respect by -5x respect to give -50 respect?

You're confusing me...

On a scale from little girl to peak physical male performance, it would go;
Aluminum pegs
Plastic pegs
Those thread on pegs from WalMart
Metal pegs
Micro pegs
Hub guards
Grinding on whatever part(s) are in the general vicinity of where pegs/guards would be

Wait, you’re pro hub shell thrashing? So 10x respect minus 5x respect, giving a sum of 5x respect for nubnutz?

If someone can grind without the necessary means to grind then yes x5000 respect points

So that means pegless smiths, on the dropout with female hubs is pretty manly? But I get minus points for not having hubguards?

This past year I made the transition to pegless. I’m not trying to bring attention to myself but rather to the cause, as it is okay to ride street without pegs contrary what the mainstream chooses to showcase. My transition was a two operation procedure spaced months apart to allow healing and adaptation to the changes undergone both internally and externally...first both pegs on my non dominant but still quite functional and never neglected for more than a day or two side were removed, and I learned to love back foot pedal feebles...when I grinded that way I was now slippery and a bit reckless but felt more free and confident in the positions my new parts (or lack thereof) enabled my to achieve, compared to the banging and bashing my former protrusions were prone to reducing me to a sweaty tired heap for. Sure, sometimes I took it on the sprocket...between me and you-I still do from time to time, and it feels pretty damn good when you get it locked in there just right...so I did the pegs on one side thing for a while, but I was unhappy with how my (bike) life was going...short grinds on random one time hits barely worth getting it up for; many times without a clean pull out due to the nature of the backdoor smash n’ dash...so I decided there were certain moves, motions of poise and grace that I felt I could only truly come to embody if I had no choice but to as a result of physical reformation. I made the full transition and am now pegless. Without the rigid extensions defining my previous life I have had to look at the world in a different way, in a softer way that isn’t merely a dressed up masturbatory exercise for exhibitionist’s. Sure, there are times I miss those parts...regular side feebles feel so much better than front pedal feebles (not to bring religion into this but it feels like god doesn’t agree with people front foot pedal evidenced in the frequent occurrence that during the grind that front foot will do a miniature version of one of the good lords famous rotations and become the back foot) but there is no going back. I am a pegless and proud street rider and there is nothing that could get me to wear a strap on just to grind something because it’s ready and willing to be tagged ragged. There is so much out there and without pegs to distract me (one clear and pure head to think with) I can feel it all so much more.

I saw that, your post isn't a grind.

I assume you mean the "x5000" for grinding without the means?
