Over the course of the past few years, we’ve seen a large amount of plastic and nylon start appearing on BMX bikes from pedals to hub guards, bar ends, seat posts and pegs. These options have helped keep the weight of bikes down, private property from being destroyed, skaters from complaining (… sort of) and in some cases, keep you from more pain that you would have suffered from some metal pedals blasting you in the shin.
It seems like plastic pegs have been one of those pieces that everyone has been putting a ton of focus into the past two years and there have definitely been a lot of advancements and really good options made available to help you get your grind on. One of the newer options coming along in October is Scott Ditchburn’s signature Slide or Die pegs from The Shadow Conspiracy, the second plastic peg option from the brand since their original Slicker sleeves.
With the completion of the peg wrapping up and the first batch about to be dropped on the BMX world, we figured it would be an awesome time to catch up with them to find out just what makes these pegs unique from what’s already on the table. Let’s take a closer look!
