You would think that one of the upshots of using plastic would be that they'd end up being cheaper then aluminum, but at $32.99, it seems like they're a little overpriced. With neither a benefit in pricing or in weight/strength, I would have to agree... what's the point? =P

my mom worked for a chemical company years ago and they were developing some plastics that were strong as steel(just about) but lighter than aluminum. wonder what happened to that "miracle plastic"? Hmm.
im gonna have to agree that the price/weight values just arent enough to make me wanna switch from my old reliable alloy pegs.
im sure they are very quiet when u get all Chase and chuck ur bike tho.lol

i think advantage of using plastic pegs is cushioning impact of bike fall.
i would buy them if i can get them in japan -_-

Plastic is always more forgiving to the shins.

I'd rather take a plastic peg to the calf over an aluminum one any day.  If they wear the same, cost the same and weigh about the same, they'd still be an improvement.

Of course...that's assuming the "ifs" all added up.

ok i guess it makes sense in some ways to have plastic pegs.. im still a little skeptical though.. when someone buys them and tests them hopefully theyll write a full 18 page review.

and kato.. check out flatlandfuel.com.. danscomp is whack its for street riders or something

I think it would hurt less if you crash bad and land on your pegs in your back, I've seen that happen before. It would hurt less on your shins too , actually, it would hurt less than metal pegs no matter where you hit yourself. The weights good, you dont need lighter than that anyway, coz a bike has to weigh something.

It would be less stressful on your bike which is a good thing if you crash alot,
definately absorb some impact,[as already mentioned], and it'd be quiet when you crash too. I suppose i'm just emphasising a few previously mentioned comments, but it has a few positives. These pegs are good, as long as they last, and are durable.

Yeah..if they are anywhere close to the durability of aluminum, then I think it WOULD be an improvement.

I'm a little skeptical myself as well.   I'd love to be pleasantly surprised by a positive review though.

FLATLAND PEG W/KNURLING



STREET PEG W/ NO KNURLING


www.grimbikes.com


Grim bikes flatland pegs are being produced in 1.5dia.

The first run of these pegs were 1.75dia. but due to the popularity of smaller pegs they have went with the 1.5 size. If people are more comfortable with the bigger size im sure they would be able to do a run of that size.

The grim park pegs will not have any knurling to them.


the flatland pegs have no weight limit, they have been tested and rode by a few of the top flatlanders...

the street pegs have been tested by real street riders in the florida area...

to date not one of the pegs flatland or street have broke under normal riding conditions...

Price is too high for thoes pegs, but i was thinking to get GSport Plegs when they come out and put some griptape on them. I don't realy like this knurled plastic idea, becouse even my alluminum and magnezium pags pretty fast goes slick.
