Ricardo has been rolling with plastic pegs for a bit now and realized he wanted a little more out of his current setup. He designed the Rinng “The Lino Peg” at 4.6″ and with replaceable sleeves like a few others on the market. I’ve been super impressed with all the stuff Rinng has been putting out. I hear its pretty custom and high quality so you know these things have to slide good. Stoked Ricardo sent these over!
So theres been a lot of talk about riding pegs these day…people are all over the place with liking them, hating them or being indifferent to them Truth of the matter is…Our bikes cant take it. They arent meant them. Steps are necessary if people want to go this route.
Personally im indifferent to them…i support all kinds of bike riding particularly the different ways in which people are pushing their fixed machines. However, i just witnessed something very similar to whats below a couple days ago when brad threw one on his level hub. Luckily the levels are quite different in design resulting in a bent axle bolt rather than a broken axle…video of this eventually.
