Here’s a promo BMX video featuring Chris Silva putting his signature Nub Nuts from Animal Bikes to proper use! Chris has been running these for a little while now, but it looks like they’re finally available through BMX shops and mail-orders worldwide. These little nub nuts replace your axle nut or bolt for female hubs with a longer, round nut or bolt that gives you a little something to grind on. This is a great option for those of you who want a little extra challenge when it comes to grinding or just don’t want to run pegs, but still want to grind. Check it out!
“I don’t believe I’m over-stretching when I say that no one else in BMX that has pegless grinds on lock like Chris Silva. Most the credit surely goes to Chris and his borderline obsessive attention to detail, but his signature “Nub Nuts” from Animal surely get some credit, as well. No need for a 17mm, either. Just use a ratchet and you’re good to fire out pegless backwards rails, hangers, and pegs to hard 180’s.
