Your ultimate Pegs
« on: March 26, 2006, 03:25:09 AM »
I am in the process of designing pegs right now that will be CNC machined.

You have probably seen my other post and poll for peg lenght. Now i would like to know everyones preferences for the grip and finish of a peg?

What would you really like in a peg?

What would be your ultimate peg?

What color would you like ?

thanks!  ^_^

1. To be light weight but still be strong.

2. It would come in 3/8" or 14mm, under 12.oz a pair, knurled surface, maybe some tiny holes to save weight, comfortable, made of Titanium

3. Just Titanuim but if you can paint them do it in black.

My idea and the trend i see in Japan is to have a half knurled peg so when you grab the peg with your hands its alot more confortable if its not all knurled.

Knurling would be only on the ends.

what do you think?

I voted for the last option but I really dont care about all those specs, they just gotta have lots of grip and light (as long as you can maintain durability)

KNURLED AT THE END
YOU HAVE TO HAVE SMOOTH AT THE END FOR PIVOTS
THATS VERY IMPORTANT BUT ALSO HAVE KNURLED
CLOSE ENOUGH FOR GRIPPING ALSO SO I GUESS AN
SMOOTH AT THE ENDS, GRIPS JUST BEFORE THAT AND
THEN SMOOTH INLAND FOR FURTHER PIVOTS
WELL THAT WOULD BE A THE PERFECT PEG.
IT WOULD ALSO HAVE TO BE LIGHT AND SMALL DIAMETER
NOT LIKE THE ONES GOOGLES SHOWED US
ARGHGHHHHHHHHHH

I WOULD ALSO SAY THE KNURLING WOULD HAVE TO BE
EASY ON THE HANDS FOR GRABBING THE PEGS TOO
SORRY MEANT TO PUT THAT IN ON TOP THERE.
