2 eXtreme. you know you wanna try em.
I got 4 of them and shoxx on ma twenty
I was gonna get plegs, but that now that these are out...
You knew it would happen sooner or later.........remember the "Roller Trucks" on skateboards back in the day?
Those would so kill you. (I guess that's where they got the name, huh?)
I can't believe I just watched the 3 videos they have
Not to be a snob, but I think the only Suicide these guys have is Marketing Suicide. Why on earth would you put a product that you want taken seriously on a GT, a GT with reflectors on the pedals no less. Just a poor choice in my mind.
I had a set BITD, a buddy gave them to me...absolutely horrible...
It might make sense from a stealth perspective.
A bunch of rails here at work suddenly got all scraped up and damaged. Because of that security set up some cameras and caught some kids, cops were called and property damage files charged.
I'm not saying its not a good idea, actually, though I think stalls in icepicks would be nasty, but I just struggle with the presentation.
If those things aren't easy to destroy, they will probably be very heavy. Plastic or some other composite material is probably going to be the ticket if you run pegs.
The stupid vandals deserved it too.... jackasses like that give us all a bad rep, IMO. The lazy ****s need to organize, and get themselves a park or someplace legal to ride.
I'm not all for distruction of property, but I ride street and I've left my mark a few places. I also have worked for years getting parks built and my own town continues to resist it, even with buisnesses pleading to have it done. Its bullocks, my town sucks!
On another note, riding real street can't really be compared to park. Finding the perfect setup for a trick you like to do is awesome. Again, I'm not condoning tearing up ledges and rails, but I do have a warm feeling in my heart when I see wax stains on a ledge or tire marks on a wall. Its like tagging, with your bike.
AAH! Vision Street Wear!!!! Damn I loved those shoes! If anyone sees em for sale somewear, holla. I used to sport the white ones, but let's see....35 years old now....better go with the stealthy black! Damn I loved them shoes...
daaaamn someone beat me to it! i had an idea for roller plastic pegs like last year to try and prevent heavy damage on coping. (this way skaters get more blame and we can shut them up when we try to get in parks) I tried putting bearings in some dumchucks but weren't strong enough.
oh well. mad props! and now this will open the doors to "rolling" more surfaces and saving money on wax. haha!
maybe a rubber coating would be cool. ultimate in stealth for night sessions with high security.
Z-Rollers was the name of the skate trucks...
these roller pegs are like $50.00 each. and they arn't really stealthy as they are freaking LOUD. (judging by the video).
but, if people have fun with them, cool...
I think Plegs are going to be the way to go.
i can grind cobblestone now!!!!!!!! its like a dream come true!!! ive always wanted pegs that when i tried ice picks would ROLL out from under me
my local Big 5 sports store sells them
Website says 4.8 oz each, thats damn light. Its kind of a cool idea but they really only make sense if your not trying to stall or grind using only one peg. Seems like they'd be god awful for street.
On a different note, anyone used these?
Their wicked light and supposed to be fairly tough, oh and their cheap. Seeing as you grind on the solid side suppose they'd hold up to concrete?
Those came on my friend's eastern jane I believe. He abuses his bike and these pegs have held up great from what he says. I don't think there's anything wrong with them based on that.
I'd totally use those but my boyfriend's feet might slip off when I give him a ride to the 7-11.
I don't believe I would have told that...
Oh I'm sorry.
Did you think a straight guy would actually buy those?
I got 5 sets...you need to get up with the times. everybody is doing it these dayz!
Dang dawg. You gettum!!
Yeah, a thick rubber coating would prevent damage to stuff, and I can see it quieting the things a lot, this could actually lead to something...
