which pegs should I get ?

Looking to do flatland and street.
looks like stunt pegs are grooved / grippy, but I guess an all out street peg ( smooth no grip) could be a
bit risky for flatland stunts ?
Any mixed , recommendations ?
cheers .

i bought whatever was in my local bike shop

i have some plain surplus trek pegs. I only use them for flatland, so they arent going to get that messed up

i recommend for flatland bizhouse escalators

Get some non knurled (those little grippy bumps are called knurling) pegs. Just some smooth ones if you plan to grind.

Then put grip tape (skateboarding black) on top of the pegs to hold your feet on better for flatland stuff.
