Pegs for beginner
« on: March 29, 2017, 11:19:54 PM »
Hello community  :)  I want to buy flatland BMX bike but i don't have enough money to get normal complete... So please tell your opinion which one you will choose from this list. All bikes are second hand.

3

I know none of this BMX have flatland frames and parts but anyway i have no choice. I want to start.

Also can someone suggest cheap pegs in market ? Hope pegs fit on it.

Where you at? Georgia?

The links you show bikes that cost 700-1200GEL, thats 456.

I suggest you buy a KHE Chris Bohm direct from Germany. It costs only 249 and leaves you enough for shipping (and import taxes?).

I'm from Georgia (country), Tbilisi. Between i'm 24 and hope this frame can hold me. 1200 GEL in dollars: 490 US or 454 Euro. I need to contact with bikes.ge. I remember they have KHE license. Thank you :)

How much i need to buy 4 normal flatland pegs ?

That bike is made with Hi-ten steel and is not as strong as cromoly but for that price you can't expect more. In the photo there are no pegs but you have to ask if it comes with pegs.
Also it doesn't have a freecoaster.


Flatland pegs can be expensive, the cheapest solution is get some plastic sleave pegs for street and cover them with griptape.

I just remembered, Armour bikes has Chris Bohm pegs on ebay, only $35 a pair which is a great deal.

What about this one ? KHE Have 4 pegs and not so much difference in price.

And none of this pegs are used for flatland ?

I think they only sell those bikes directly from there site now.

The 20th is better equipped because of the 3-piece crank but the Bohm has more flatland geometry, short stem and minimal offset forks.

They had Alchemy griptape pegs for flatland but they must of sold out. The other aluminum pegs they have on the site are oldschool style. They are bigger and heavier than modern pegs.

Huge thanks for find time and answer all my questions. I make 2 decision:

I will collect enough money and buy correct flatland bike or go with second hand street/park BMX and then get pegs for it.
