ive been using G-sport PLEG's for a year now. I replaced each sleeve once. I love them. Havent needed a block of wax yet! Being able to grind EVERYTHING is well worth needing to replace the sleeves.

Thanks for the advice nathans#1fan. I think i'll try the g sport hub guards. Look a little expnsive but better than breaking spokes all the time. I have profile mini ss hubs and the spokes are in such bad shape. I think the g sport guard will work.

freecoaster - if I only had one peg I would run it back non-drive side. feebles and luc-e's are my favorite grinds :D

great video. this one is for mfreestyle_2000 i ride the primo binary pegs. these things are great. they are made of 4150 chromoly and weigh 7.6 oz each. as far as hub guards go i would get the g sport pland. the are made of plastic and attaches to the spokes with zip ties. so let me know what u think.

it's funny to me that BK is so intense, almost angry, in his video parts when he's riding, but he seems like such a nice dude when he's just chilling.

sadly you fogot to mention the use of washers!! on smaller dropouts or forks you will deform plastic pegs if you dont put a washer either side of the peg.

A lot of riders that grind on the right run a left side drive hub so the whole sprocket set up is on the opposite side. You may mess it up how it is right now if you're falling on it a lot, but it should be fine if you manage to keep your pegs on whatever you're grinding!
