It's not easy to build your own custom pro scooter. There are as many parts that do not fit together, and a wrong assembly can easily destroy parts. This guide helps with tips and trick...
What Are Stunt scooter Pegs Used For?
Stunt scooter pegs are cylindrical-shaped parts that can be attached to the wheels of a stunt scooter. They allow scooter riders to perform different grinds, stalls, and jumps that are otherwise not possible on scooters without pegs. They come in different lengths and can be made from either metal or plastic materials.
How to Use Scooter Pegs
Stunt scooter pegs can be set up on either side of the front and rear wheel axles. Most riders choose to instal two pegs, on the same side of the scooter, as they favour one side more than the other for tricks.
To grind on scooter rails or boxes, you need to be able to hop up onto the obstacle with the front, back or both pegs landing on the grinding surface. To finish the trick, you just hop back off and roll away. There are many combinations of this, and the trick list is long. Other peg tricks where you use your feet more are nose and tails manuals and many other jumps and spins.
Even though most pro scooter pegs have a mounting bolt included, bear in mind that not all pegs fit each stunt scooter. The standard axle diameter that comes with the pegs is 8 mm, so this should be the same diameter as your original axle. A rule of thumb is to buy the pegs, deck and fork from the same brand to give you the best chance of it fitting together.
