Plegs

I'm getting tired of waiting for them. I've waited for the pegs to come out for almost a year. I might just end up getting some Kink Lites or Demoltion Dumchucks.

They are probly taking awhile because the George wants to make them really good. At least he's not just putting stuff out left and right that breaks. Everything GSport makes is great, no exceptions for these Plegs, when they come out.

That is true, I just desperately need pegs. Pegs are my fun on a bike and my pegs are terrible- they barely slide at all. I went out and feebled a metal bench with speed and still didn't go very far.

I am going pretty fast. The bench isn't a flat and clean metal bench, it has like ridges on it.

Well then no pegs are going to do any better. Go faster, and use wax. The pegs you have are fine.

"Vandero 2 by the end of the month if everything stays on schedule.

Plegs are longer off. Probably mid summer at the earliest.

Sorry about the ridiculously long wait on these."

Then just manual it, and break the other leg...

j/k, but why do you think some new part is going to magically make your riding better?

New pegs make grinding a bit more enjoyable.

Then buy new damned pegs, it's not like they're expensive.

It's not like they are just $5. I can't afford all of the toys like you can.

Actually plegs will be about $9 a piece. Even if you get some new kink lights or something, I'm sure you could fork out $18 when plegs are released.

The $9 each will most likely be for replacement plastic sleeves. The Plegs themselves will most likely cost $30 for a pair.

no sir,

Chris Cotsonas-

"That price ($10) sounds right. The weight per peg with the hardware included is around 4 oz.

The replacement sleeves will be sold in packs of two at roughly 7 or 8 dollars."

Just get a new pair for now, Fit. You'll just have to wait for the plegs. Or you could lube up the pegs you have now every time you ride.

You can either go faster for now at the ledges and stuff you grind. Or you can just get some new pegs now, and plegs later on when they come out. Since you complain to be broke, get some Poverty pegs they are cheap and simple. And don't tell me they are bad because metal pegs are mostly all the same. Unless you want sleeve pegs or plastic hybrids.
