its spelled "ridges" not "rijes"
and the bumpy ones are for flatland.

I can't imagine grinding with knurled (bumpy) pegs.

well i believe the ones with ridges are usually gonna be bigger, harder to balance on some cracked concrete ledges, and not slide as fast.

smoooth pegs.
unless your talking about the pegs that have the little indented lines all the way around them (like the haro pegs) then those are fine too...

but knurled pegs (the ones with the rough finish) are for flatland (i think)

Why aren't the pegs smooth on the bottom and ridged on the top? Get some smooth ones, rough of the top half, there ya go.

wouldnt work, because in order to make pegs last longer from grind ware you should rotate them....so then it wouldnt work

There are smooth pegs with ridges, they're are just crappy cheap pegs that come stock on some bikes. In order to have cutaways like that you're sacrificing either light weight or strength, and since (smooth) pegs are already both heavy and have to take a lot of abuse, there's no functional reason to run them, only aesthetics.

I beg to differ. I used Kink OGs for years, but my Odyssey JPEG Lites slide just as fast on the rare occasion that I rock pegs. The Animal pegs aren't supposed to be half bad, either.
