wish the pegs were a bit larger diameter like their old ones....
The original ones look thicker because of the large taper but both are actually very similar.
Old ones were 40mm OD (1.57") and the II's are 1.5", so that's a very small difference.


IDK - I've tried several 1.5 pegs and every single one hurt my feel while my older colony pegs feel great. Guess that little bit of difference helps for me.

at least the first Exon stem was CNC machined. this new stem is just the cheap forged one that already came on the Colony Apprentice completes. The exon pegs were at least unique to other pegs on the market too. these new ones look like they just came from the same OEM order as St Martins pegs.

The funniest reason i ever hear was Matthias Dandois who said he hated the " click click click" sound brakes make . Others say they cant stand the constant adjustment. Another bunch will say its about the evolved riding style, no more scuff no brakes,  Glide, pivot , turbine , switch.

For me brakeless was hard because my body cant take the bails like it used to. I'd say ride with brakes until you get your  basics up then take them off as they get in the way or use them less

BITD we rode with no rear brakes because gyro cables were not available in the local bike shops.

Parts and Bikes / Re: Pegasus 2019 33mm stem
« Last post by Revig on January 15, 2019, 10:48:27 AM »

Come on, the Liberté one is nothing compared to a S&M or a Pegasus stem, which have a machining finish, not molded.
The Liberté one is purely a stem coming from the Taiwan Bicycle Source book, or the chinese one (if it exists),
there is the same stem model on some FEC complete for example
I do not say that's a bad product, but that way different than the two others!

I finally like something they make—big ups on the updated stem.

this one doesn't have the headtube gusset on the downtube. It's a more cleaner design.

Ah that’s right, good to know
