Dammit Eastern.

Why, just why?

There are better ways to make things light rather then putting holes in them.

That has to take the cake for stupidest thing to do for pegs. I wonder how many grinds Edwin could do with those before breaking them into a few billion pieces.

That argument is completely irrelevant.

The peg is obviously directed towards the park riding community. While I don't particularly like the idea, I don't see anything wrong with it. I doubt many people grind through with coping, and I am sure they tested them sufficiently before going into production.

If you don't like them, don't buy them.

i doubt they tested them much, but they will be fine for park riders.

I honestly doubt that they would hold up that well even for park riders. Those are like the pegs you find on X-Mart bikes.

The design of them are very similar. The materials are different though. I still don't think they'd hold up so well.

Me to, The holes are only in one side, if you have them facing up, I think they would hold up.

I could have told ya that.

But still with that kind of cutout on a peg you can't rotate them when they start to wear, plus they look stupid.


They may actually, all jokes aside be good for flat landers cause the holes might give traction? For real.

I was thinking they might be OK for flatlanders, cause they don't really need them for anything besides standing on (unless they ride street or park as well, in which case they wouldn't be so good).

They just wanted to use the word "slit" in a product title. The marketing guys asked the R&D guys what part would be easiest to cut a slit in, and that thing was born.

First the marketing guys will have to come up with a cool word that have to use in a product title. What word would make you want to drill holes in your crank? Think of it and email them.
