    Grinding

    Is there a reason why most people put pegs on their left side and not on their right?

    The reason is that alot of bikes have their sprocket on the right side so they avoid grinding up their sprocket by putting the pegs on the left. I put mine on the right no matter what cause im only good at grinding that side.

    your sprocket really doesn't matter, right side or left side is just a personal prefrence, i choose right because i am righty and i can move the bike around better to the right

    right side seems to win around here

    they do it case them just grind on one side, so only need one side of pegs, or are trying to save weight.

    When I finally get my act together, what's the best way to start grinding?

    I've seen a few videos of people going down bannisters, but it looks pretty tricky.

    Any top advice out there?

    So people tend to grind ostly on their left side becuase when you grind on the right side you sproket is also getting scratched?

    I think they will grind on any side. They might grind on different sides on different grinds. I am happy to help.

    a lot of people can only grind on one side so they only keep pegs on that side cause theres no use for another set
