    Just make your own. I had my friend Paul make me one out of a piece of 4130 and some small steel tubing.

    Today I learned pegless croooks, and I was looking for the same deal. ^^^

    I was thinking about seeing if a piece of PVC pipe cut to fit perfect around the edge of the BB and on the bottom side of it. Then if it wore down I could just throw another one on there.

    No, I run no pegs, front or rear. What I do is go up to the rail on my oposite side nad bunny hop towards the rail, and I have my front tire go over the rail, and I land on my BB, and very slightly on my left pedal/crank arm for ballance. I thought it was a crook, because when people do that with pegs, I was pretty sure it was a crook.

    No, I can't say that I did. Van Homan was doing that stuff years ago.

    A rodea grind is different, it's done on like a ledge with your bike all sideways and what not.. a botto bracket grind is just your bottom bracket on a rail.

    A rodeo grind is where you're grinding on your crankarm or sprocket, with the bike kicked perpendicular to the ledge, your outside foot on the back tire, and your outside hand of the bars.

    Here's a shot of me doing a barspin one awhile back:

    on rails? i could jump at rails and grind on my bb for a few feet, but i don't think it's possible to balance on it with no pegs
