etnies Skatepark BMX Petition

Posted By dustin in BMX | Apr 1 2011 / Friday Skip To The Comments (1445)

etnies was shocked and disappointed to discover that the City of Lake Forest banned BMX pegs from their public skatepark. In fact, we heard nothing of this proposed ban until AFTER it happened and it should be noted that the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest, although it bears our name, is managed and run by the City of Lake Forest, not by etnies or any etnies personnel.

We are opposed to the BMX peg ban at the skatepark and below is a comment-based petition to sign and speak out against it. Thank you for your continued support of BMX and etnies.

(Note: Since we will be showing the city of Lake Forest the petition, your information will be shared with them in an effort to overturn the ban.)

  8. dont start burning shoes over this people

    the problem is that the parks developer gives the city a warranty for the park that they say is voidable if bikes/pegs are allowed in the park
    seems to be the problem with these skatepark developers ...or atleast the ones in AZ
    is this a SDG built park?

    what about the use of plastic pegs?

  13. "Don't start burning shoes over this people"? This problem isn't etnies saying don't let bikes use pegs like DC said don't allow bikes. This is the city. How hard is it to find a park developer that will build a park that is warrantied for bikes and pegs. They are out there, Planet Concrete for one... Etnies should have made a "DC" like contract that says Etnies will give the city the money for the park, BUT bikes WILL be allowed in the park forever in every way. A contract is a contract.

  14. The Lake Forest beaurocrats would be hard pressed to prove metal pegs caused more wear and tear than Grade 8 steel axles and kingpins that stick out from skateboard trucks and the aluminum trucks themselves.

    Nonetheless, this is idiocy at its finest. This is a monitored park, so they can make bike riders use plastic pegs only. With plastic pegs, bike riders will cause much LESS wear and tear than skateboards. Ironic, huh?

    Jason Ryan
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  15. Nobody's going to burn Etnies, Jason. You show your ignorance with that statement. Anybody who knows anything about the Lake Forest Skatepark knows Etnies fought very hard to get bikes allowed into it. In addition, any warranty on the skatepark would be voided already since bikes have been allowed in it for years.

  16. I'm curious about something. SDG designed this park. What input has Mike McIntyre had into this decision, if any? He claims to be completely bike-friendly with his new company, ASD. Maybe this will put him to the test.

  22. skatepark cement is slick, and does not chip or grind down nearly as easily as the street construction grade stuff. also most parts of a park that are possible to grind have coping to protect the ledge and give nice smooth slides. let pegs in!

    Plus it gets kids of the streets better to have them riding and grinding than theft or violence !

    jason vawter
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  39. Keep the pegs. Use wider, peg-friendly coping in the new section if needed. And increased crowding shows there is a demand. Add more BMX sessions to accomodate all the kids who are getting into it!

  41. first of all if we cant ride pegs on our bikes then make a no trucks law for skateboarders....its the same thing and does the same amount of damage as pegs...whats next...banning people for not having brakes....i hate idiots like the city of lake forest bringing down bmx like we are felons and criminals....bmx is bigger than skateboarding and they are jealous....i guess they dont know about pedal grinds and crank arm grinds...

    ralph williamson
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  42. Please please please turn around the ban! Don't you want kids to have fun and keep out of trouble? Pegs are widely used on the streets and sometimes damage property; eliminating our source of legal grinding material may force riders to the streets.

    Posted: 3 years ago,
  46. Grinding is grinding. Damage will be done weather it's trucks or pegs. There are also alternatives such as plastic pegs that can be used as well.

    Might as well require plastic trucks if you are going to ban pegs.

  50. Skateparks are meant to be shared by everyone. Pegs are no more destructive than repetitive skateboard trucks landing on anything.
    If bikes can't have pegs, skateboards can't have trucks

  62. I live in Corpus Christi,Tx where we have a skatepark that does not allow bikes for the same STUPID reason. Etnies donated this park for BOTH skateboarding AND BMX. They didn't have to do that. Quit discriminating and let these guys shred!!!!!!! It's a skatepark, stuff is gonna get messed up. Who cares!? Would you rather have your street spots messed up? Because I'm sure the bike riders don't have a problem doing that. Go BMX!!!!

    James Morales

  63. to ban pegs at a skatepark maintained by a company that doesn't want pegs banned is not right.skateboards do just as much damage and we get blamed for all of it to use etnies name and make up such a prejudice rule is wrong they did not sign up to support a 'no pegs' park

    steven case
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  64. We have a bmx only cement park in arizona and pegs are allowed. The park has no more damage then any of the other parks that bikes are allowed in. There is no reason to ban pegs in the Etnies park. thanks,

  67. I'm sure if Etnies had known that pegs would have been banned from the skatepark they would not have provided the funds for the initial construction of the skatepark. This is a case of the council misunderstanding how damage at park occurs. If they had done some research into the subject their vote would surely have been different.

  69. This ban does not directly affect me,but I must say that it's nothing short of asinine to interdict pegs when there is not a single person who can legitimately support the theory that pegs inflict any more damage than skateboards. Until someone can prove otherwise, the ban should be abnegated.

  77. Banning pegs is just another form of tearing apart a unified community of extreme sports athletes. It's prejudice and ridiculous. We all have the same desire to have pure natural fun in a safe controlled environment. I still support Etnies because of everything they have contributed to the sports they are involved with, but I could not disagree more with the banning of a component on a tool used for having good times with good people.

    Matt Baker
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  78. Pegs are an integral part of the sport, its like saying skaters can't do truck grinds, or stalls! they are both as destructive to the park! Just fork out some dosh if they get broken stop being such a cheap SKATE!

  84. Pegs should be allowed in the etnies skatepark because it is a vital tool to many bmx riders and can help them with their skill and style. In addition, if pegs cannot be used, then some people might give up going to the park all together resulting in a population decrease.

  86. What an absolute joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GET WITH THE TIMES LAKE FOREST! It's a damn skate park. If you ban pegs, why stop there? Why not start banning skateboard wheels, bike wheels, bike handles, peddles, skateboard trucks, ...? They are all as much a part of this great sport as pegs. How dare you soil the name of Etnies by putting such stupid stupid rules in place. Etnies themselves support this petition. Pull your heads in and get over it.

    Andrew Meyers
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  87. Pegs damage concrete as much as skateboard trucks do, and as a matter of fact, skate trucks might be even more damaging. ...coming from someone who both skates and rides BMX. The people in charge need to do their homework. Props to Etnies and the people trying to turn this around.

    Josh
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  88. This is BUSH LEAGUE! Banning pegs takes away so many awesome tricks and takes away the oppurtunity to do those aweseome tricks. I am dissapointed that the city would do this. This ban should most definitely be overturned.

    As a resident of nearby Orange, CA, I would like to first thank you for giving the members of the BMX and skateboarding community a place to enjoy our passion together.

    Patrick Kelly
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  103. I've used the Etnies skatepark multiple times since moving to Orange, and I have your city to thank for that. The Etnies skatepark has provided a great, fun, and safe environment for bikers and skaters to meet others and stay out of trouble for over 7 years. I'm sure multiple friendships have been formed at your skatepark and countless young peoples' lives have been touched by action sports.

    Patrick Kelly
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  104. This is the reason why I'm completing this petition. In response to the recent ban of pegs on BMX bikes at Etnies skatepark, I implore Lake Forest to reconsider its goal in doing this. I assume the goal of having a government-sponsored skatepark is to have people use the facility instead of participating in gangs, vandalism, or violence.

    Patrick Kelly
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  105. By banning pegs from the skatepark, the City is inhibiting a lot of participants in the park. The ban could even promote that bikers use non-sanctioned areas in the city (such as handrails and ledges at local businesses) to practice their grinds. You will ultimately see a better investment for Lake Forest if you allow BMX bikers to use pegs in the skatepark.

    Patrick Kelly
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  106. Again, I'd like to thank you for giving skaters and bikers a place to meet for the last 7 years and I hope there are many more to come. Thank you.

  109. I ride pegs on my BMX bike, and when I go to a skatepark, I use them. If there is a skatepark that doesn't allow pegs, I won't go there. There is an indoor skatepark close to my house and I refused to give them my business all winter long, as well as my friends. Our reason for this is because they do not allow pegs.

    Ari Kaiser
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  110. wow, absolutely pathetic. tell the skateboarders not to grind the coping with thier metal trucks or drop thier boards so the axles chip concrete. or better yet tell them to tie a cord to thier board incase it goes flying and hits somebody or someone runs it over. this is extreme sports, THERE ARE ALWAYS GOING TO BE RISKS.

  114. Nick Gates, I demand you provide SOLID PROOF that "allowing BMX bikes with pegs into the park has caused significant damage to the park"-as quoted in the espn.go article. If you cannot, you are discriminating against BMX riders. For everyone with a logical mind and a sense of right and wrong, check out my article about the "bikes damage skateparks" myth at http://www.psychicflyingmonkey.com/3BC%20page%20folder/exposition-of-bikes-damage-skateparks-myth.htm

  116. I think the city should be smart about banning something first of all. They should look into it a lot more before finalizing a ban. A skate park will obviously have wear and tear if its being used, Just like anything in this world. But skateboards can easily compete with doing the same amount of damage as a peg can.Don't be stupid, Unban peg use at the skatepark, its a part of the sport. If you don' unban peg use, Make sure you ban the grinding on skateboards.

  134. Everyone knows that skateboards and bikes do equal damage to the parks. All this ban is doing is discouraging kids from wanting to ride their bikes in a safe, properly-built environment. Leading them to ride in the streets, with cars and the risk of being trespassed for riding somewhere they're not allowed to. Or, they may not ride at all and get into other mischievous activities because riding just isn't as fun to them with ridiculous rules and the inability to GRIND.

  135. it's not only peg that do damage to the grinding areas it is also medal truck on a skate board. They do just as much damage as pegs. So if u r going to banned pegs form the park u also have to banned medal trucks.

  143. i don't ride pegs but i can say that they do no more damage than trucks on a skateboard do. they're both metal and therefore inflict an equal but minimal amount of damage to the cement. if pegs are banned then so should be trucks on a skateboard

  144. This is a complete outrage. If pegs are to be banned from a skate park, half, if not more, of the tricks once possible there will disappear. I know that pegs can damage concrete and coping, but if pegs are to be banned, you might as well ban trucks from skateboarders.

    Some concrete (pun intended) evidence that pegs are abusing the park any more than a skateboard would make sense before issuing a ban.

  167. I think it's important to remember that if lawful facilities like skatepark's exclude individuals who enjoy riding with pegs then these individuals will be forced elsewhere. Typically this means private and public property; facilities which can be damaged from use. Local government's should consider this as the consequences of unlawful damage can be extremely severe for youths which would otherwise be considered upstanding citizens.

  177. First off, it is underhanded to impose a regulation without the knowledge, let alone permission, of the namesake.

    That having been said, if the namesake is opposed to the ban, that's good enough for me. In addition, there is a definite (and severe) limitation on what the BMX riders can do with the ban in place.

    If the issue is damage to the various edges at the park, then it would be just as "justified" to ban grinding by the skaters. Of course, that won't happen.

Without pegs, I won't be able to ride anything in the street course. I won't be able to slide the combi bowl with my ally-oop fakie 50-50s. 3/4 of etnies has been taken away from me. Please consider allowing Etnies BMXers to purchase these pegs again from the store on site. Please, don't take your pegs away from me.

If you are going to ban grinds on one thing you may as well ban all grinds cause its all wear and tear-but the point of coping is to grind it, so lets stop being silly, get the pegs back on and stop listening to the self appointed preachers.

  225. As a lake forest resident and a rider of the park, it is ridiculous for the city to ban pegs in the park. Having ridden the park countless times since its opening, i have yet to see any biker do any peg induced damage to any park of the park.

    With metal coping covering almost every grindable surface, I see no valid reason to ban pegs in the park. Banning pegs is further alienating the bmx community (given the already limited access to the park)

An skatepark ain't something cheap, it has to be maintained like a football ground. And yeah, as someone mentioned, what about plastic pegs. It's almost the same thing as metal soccer shoe studs, why not forbid those aswell? The grass would probably be cheaper to maintain with plastic studs och flat soles. Just saying.

  288. I think they shouldn't ban pegs because if you think about it skateboarder's trucks cause more destruction to the park than pegs do. so if they are going to ban pegs then they should ban the trucks for skateboards to make it fair.

  290. Pegs can't cause any less damage than trucks do, so it's unfair to ban them, also no where near as many riders will go to the park if they can't run pegs there.

  294. A skatepark is one place where kids, teens, adults should feel free to ride their bikes (pegs or not) without fear of getting in trouble with the law. We have no problem funding basketball and tennis courts around the country for kids to play in. We don't kick out kids who play roller hockey on these courts. So why would we do it to bikers with pegs at a skatepark.

  295. Your facility is not a BMX "racetrack" so why would bikes use it like that? The term "park" suggests the use of "stunts" on our bikes. Pegs make a big difference of how we use our bikes in an area made to jump, grind and display the self expression of our lifestyle/sport.

  296. I don't feel like bikes should be second class here an have separate rules. I have seen Terrible damage to the ground after a ledge from skateboards, yet there is no rule about putting plastic caps over king pins and trucks. (African Americans are allowed at are restaurant but they must use a separate door. They must sit at different tables and must use different table wear) I thought we where over having second class citizens....

  302. I would say at least 75% of bikes ride pegs these days. When you have parks having to replace coping in pools that bikes have never touched, you can't say that bikes do more damage then a skateboard. We both do the same thing. It's very close minded to say no pegs in a park.

  304. Pegs are pretty much the same thing as trucks on a skateboard. So they should ban skateboards too if they think that this supposed "significant damage" if from pegs. Not to mention lots of people are using plastic these days, which definitely do not create any kind of damage of wear on the park.

  312. They are not looking into this issue. I will say there is some sort of biased opinion in this effort to ban pegs. Why not allow plastic pegs? Why not build the park to current specs for multi-use? Adding steel plating behind coping and on ledges. This is a shared park, not a skateboard only park.

  331. We ride a local cement park every weekend (Ceres, CA) and have been for the last four years. We run pegs, and the park handles it very well because the contractor built the park correctly. At other parks I've seen much more damage from skate-axles popping little divots in the concrete than any substanitial damage caused by pegs. Please do your homework, use better cement, and illicit input from reputable contractors who know how to build a park that lasts.

  332. Not everyone with pegs use them to grind they can be used for other non damaging tricks. BMX pegs only cause a miniscule amount of damage when used correctly and do not damage much more than the metal trucks of a skateboard, They should be permitted in all parks.

  341. Pegs dont do anything that skate trucks aren't doing. It's discouraging that skateboarding is becoming more and more accepted and bmx is still the outlaw sport. Parks are the places the cops consistantly tell you to go when they try to bust you for riding street, but not only are there limited parks that allow bikes, but now they're trying to take pegs out of the picture. It's just a regressive step... it's messed up.

  359. I don't think its fair and well thought out that pegs are banned from the skatepark because Skateboard trucks to just as much damage to the cement, it;s just a stereotypic thing about the BMX pegs, and they just need something to blame. Also, taking pegs away from a BMX rider is like taking the mitt away from a baseball player.. it doesn't cause harm, and its often needed by the athlete. I just hope this is taken into consideration. Thank you.

Theres skateparks around the world like in Australia that have had pegs used in them for more than 15 years and they are fine. pegs do as much "damage" as skate trucks. In the end, the term grinding doesn't conjure up an image of softly rolling over something. How about plastic copers for skateboards? Lets vote for more bmx hours next time.

    Please rescind your previous action to ban pegs on bicycles at the Etnies Skatepark. Having been involved in freestyle BMX since the mid 1980's, I can attest to how minimal the impact of pegs is on a skatepark. Not having a safe place for kids to practice their skills forces them into the streets. Skateparks are designed for such trickery, public and private property are not.

Dont ban pegs, there are kids using your skatepark who are awesome at grinds and could go pro in the future and they'll say 'When i was a kid i used to ride at Lake Forest, it's awesome!' and bring business to your shops. Or of course you could ban pegs to stop kids from grinding meaning they dont get sponsered and in turn your town looses out.

  436. It is inherently foolish to assume that bmx pegs cause any more damage to a properly built ramp park than any other park use. The owness is on the individual user to respect the facilities, legislation such as this does little to foster any feelings of respect towards the facility or staff. By ANY participant, whether they chose to inline skate, scooter, skateboard, or bmx.

  439. A 160 lb. kid on a skater can do just as much damage to the property as a 140lb bmxer. 9 times out of 10 if a BMXer hits someone it's because someone wasn't paying attention. You're going to build a skatepark so your city ledges are left undamaged, so you're going to call one of the sports more destructive than the other ones, (Which is a lie), and then you're going to tell them the place you built for that reason is off limits?

  454. Our country is no longer run by the people, why does it matter to who ever it was that's sitting behind they're desk making this decision? Pegs don't damage the park anymore than skateboard trucks do. People choose to bmx and skate due to the freedom that comes along with it, and trying to take any of that freedom away should be considered nothing less than a criminal act. It's simply unconstitutional. It's OUR taxes that pay for these parks! Pegs need to be allowed, bottom line.

    Plus, i can only imagine that with the ban on pegs in place, the city will start seeing a lot more damage done to rails and ledges around town, because face it, riders will find somewhere to ride with them

  470. If skateboards grind on their trucks what's the difference.itsca cheap excuse to say they're ruining parks. Skateboards stay the same while Bmx is always pushing for an excellence to where bikes weigh a fraction of what they used to be and technology with pegs also grew , with plastics and alloy combined to roll fast with less damage. Do the math

  471. Pegs are important aspect of BMX riding. Of course it's possible to ride without pegs, but pegs don't damage skateparks. It's also freestyle too, a past time where kids get to make all of the choices. Don't make the choices for them, let them express themselves.

    Paul Chamberlain

  472. Pegs are sold by many BMX companies, with their intended use being for grinds or stalls.

I have a petition going to try to get bikes allowed in my local skatepark and in order to maybe pursuade them to let us in, i created a sleeve that goes over your peg similar to the Shadow Conspiracy Slicker Sleve, but instead all you need is pvc pipe and it fits over any pegs, not just shadow pegs.

  498. I do not run pegs, however i have in the past. if you think of the simple logic behind it, skateboard trucks are pretty much the same thing as pegs when you grind. bikes scrape the side more, but if the park is made with metal edged coping there shouldnt be a problem. hey skaters, remember when you were told not to skate? now your telling someone they cant ride.... kinda sad

    Patrick Thomas
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  499. 5-0 grinds and 50-50s ruin ledges just as much or even worse than pegs. And if you want to get real technical, their are pegs now that are made of plastic! There is no need to band them completely. Before you know it, your just going to band bikers all together like they did in my town. When it all boils down, what would you rather have, bikers grinding in private property areas of downtown or the skatepark? I rest my case.

  513. Lucas is right. This is only going to lead to worse and worse conditions for bike riders at this skatepark. While this petition is a good start, city councils rarely respond to petitions.

I also do not see how a peg (which is smooth all the way across) damages things more then a skateboard would. The trucks on a skateboard have a bolt that cuts grooves into everything they grind.

With this ban, its just asking me and other riders to risk what we know as fun and possibly getting into trouble with the city. Thats something I personally don't wanna worry about.

    Or build parks for each style, if they want to give a proof of freedom and equality. For the moment they just prove that money rules, in a single way.

  575. Pegs are harmless and fun. This ban will not result in anything other than discouraging kids to come to the park and enjoy it. Skateboard trucks are made of metal and cause as much or more damage. Any concrete will need upkeep and maintenance over time. Please educate yourselves and realize that banning pegs is a bad decision.

In Singapore, our skatepark which is run by our National Parks Board, allows bikes and skateboards during all times, and allows the use of pegs on BMX bikes. I really don't see the issue of banning pegs on BMX bikes unless the Etnies skatepark is made of flimsy material, which I'm sure it is not.

  731. I don't understand why you would ban BMX pegs. Scooters and trucks on skateboards can do just as much-if not more-damage to the park; just because you can't take these parts off of a board or scooter doesn't mean you can compensate by limiting the progression of BMX kids. If your park has coping on ramps, ledges, and boxes, then bikers should be able to use them just like anybody else.

  782. I am a the owner of a skatepark construction company (RampScape, LLC) and a BMX Biker. It is True that Pegs do more damage to skateparks that other Wheeled athletes but it is better that it is done at the skatepark than the rest of your city. A maintenance Fund should be set up for the park and events held at the park can benefit such fund.
    90% of my riding involves my pegs, as does a lot of bikers.

  881. In order to solve this issue, we would advise the city of Lake Forest to consider recommending the use of plastic pegs offered by many BMX brands now. Instead of banning all pegs, the skatepark should accept plastic pegs that are kinder to cement and copings. These pegs have been created for the purpose of offering an alternative to skateparks and riders.

OR JUST GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS"S AND LET US RIDE SO WE ARE NOT DOING DRUGS AND SMACKING BITCHES CUZ IF THERE IS NO PEGS ALLOW THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT IM DOIN! HAHA

  905. Not only are there so few parks in So-Cal that actually allow bikes, many BMX riders prefer to use pegs. Now if I remember correctly there are metal copings, not concrete, at the parpark. So I really don't see any reason for a peg ban.

  918. If you take away pegs you might as well ban skateboards because pegs are metal but skateboard trucks are metal also so either way it's pointless also it's a skate park it's for kids and or adults to have fun and bike or skate but really there just pegs it's not hurting you so just relax just imagine if it was you and you had something taken away you liked

  923. I oppose this ban against bmx bike pegs because they do the same damage as skateboards trucks on the concrete, rails, etc... Bmx bikes should be allowed at the park because if the riders cant go there they will go to the streets. Where the will get tickets for riding. So please allow bmx bike pegs at the park and save the kids the trouble of riding. Thank you.

  947. Banning pegs from this "skate" park is going to encourage the wrong idea that skateboarders have more right to be riding the parks than bmxers and so create the feeling that bmxers are not wanted in "skate" parks. All this will do is encourage animosity between different types of park users. I personally would like to see the evidence behind the decision as I would imagine trucks do equal amount of wear to the park. This stinks of victimisation of bmxers.

    Seriously, the only thing that should be banned from skate parks are parents and their kids with no gnar factor.

    Nonetheless, this is idiocy at its finest. This is a monitored park, so they can make bike riders use plastic pegs only. With plastic pegs, bike riders will cause much LESS wear and tear than skateboards. Ironic, huh?

  1069. Taking away pegs in the BMX world, limits riders severely. Some rider do ride pegless by choice, but most riders use pegs for tricks. So by taking away our pegs, you are taking away from our sport. It would be like taking off the lip of a skateboard. Skaters could still do tricks but by taking off the lip of the board, they will be severely limited. If you are worried about damage, all you have to do is get a small strip of metal and put it behind the coping to prevent damage from grinding.

  1070. if they are going to ban pegs then ban skateboards and scooters to beacuse they grind just as well. if you ban pegs you are putting a limit on ones hobbies. that would make kids with pegs on take time to take off pegs and that could greatly shorten the riding time. and pegs dont cause any harm to the park or the rider they just allow you to grind and do stalls on a bmx bike

  1072. More review should have been done before issuing a ban on pegs at the skate park. Although both Skateboards and BMX pegs both do damage to concrete other solutions were not reviewed. Like for instance that there are now concrete friendly pegs that are made of plastic. http://www.danscomp.com/518190.php?cat=PARTS

  1086. Wow, it's a skatepark not a historic building. Bike riders use pegs as part of their riding to do tricks. You wouldn't take away a professional athletes equipment when they are playing or completing. This is such unfair treatment to the BMX biking sport.

    Seriously:
    well-built/ well-designed concrete parks= minimal/no problems, including BMX bikes (with or without pegs).There are countless examples of this all over the country, and the world. Please think this through from all angles before continuing a "ban" a bicycle part (?) at the Lake Forest park.

Enough would be covering the damage and maintenance caused by BMX pegs. You dont give enough, so stop the bitching.

Most riders would happily spend fifteen bucks to switch if that means they can use this park. Together with the coping, plastic pegs would ensure that the park will remain useable for the long-term. Thanks for your time.

From an engineering perspective concrete is very fine and strong and can take a lot of abuse than your average ledge you see that has been hit from skaters and bikers. All of the concrete parks I have been to that allow pegs are still going strong and show little to no damage to the concrete.

  1260. I wish you would re-consider your decision to ban bicycle pegs at your skatepark. I only know what I have read, but it sounds as though your decision was not based on intelligient debate , but rather a one sided view aimed at eliminating bmx at the park. Please don't follow the close minded thinking that any one so called extreme sport takes presidence over another. Weigh all your options and debate them with the patrons of the park. After all, they are the reason the park was made.

The reason their are skateparks is to let kids ride the park instead of grinding or using other people's property to do the same thing also you can find great kids at these parks who you might want to sponsor and become the next matt hofman or dave mirra. just alow it wouldn't that be good for etnies?

  1282. I am extremely disappointed in the decision to ban pegs from the Etnies skatepark. In hearing the news, I was surprised that Etnies would allow such a rule to be made knowing that their pro bmx team consists of some of the top riders in the world. After finding out that the City of Lake Forest made the call, I'm sure many messages similar to mine will be quickly heard.

    I'll be glad to hear that the peg ban has lifted as will thousands of bmx riders who travel the country will be also.

We respectfully demand that the issue be re-opened for public discourse. Was any evidence relied upon to demonstrate the claim that bmx pegs are worthy of being banned? How about comparing the effects of bmx pegs of various materials with inline skate and skateboard components of various materials?

  1310. The ban on pegs is such a cap on the experience of bike riding to many riders. The option to use pegs or not opens up new areas of the park, and tricks you can link together during your runs. Without pegs the parks enjoyability can suffer, and the park as a whole can become boring. It seems like such a waste of time and money to build something of such quality, and then ruin its ability to be enjoyable.

  1334. This peg ban is outrageous and unnecessary. If you are to ban pegs I suggest you also ban skateboard trucks (which is ridiculous). This ban will not prevent BMX riders from grinding, they will just grind on other parts of their bike. Also, as a rider who runs pegs, taking pegs off completely alters the feel of a bike, and the style of riding. I sincerely hope you can re-think your decision, I know many riders are bummed out about this no pegs decision. thanks

  1337. The older frames from the late 80's to around 2004 all had big, chunky dropouts that were there to protect the rear wheel while grinding. This created a sort of blunt blade that would stick out about an inch below the pegs and would slice away at any ledge.

    With dropouts now being designed to be flush with the pegs, if not smaller than the pegs, the damage caused by grinding has been significantly reduced.

    The use of plastic sleeved pegs will also reduce damage.

    Pegs are a good sized part of bmx, just like trucks are for skating. Ask AND LISTEN the community bout things like this before you put the bans in place Lake Forest council.

  1368. bmx pegs and skateboard trucks/axles are the same thing. On a skateboard or bike, somebody takes a fall and throws their board or bike and it's gonna damage the cement irregardless. You're discriminating plain and simple, there's no evidence the same material as a peg damages a piece of coping more than that same material as a skateboard truck, damage occurs and you fix it, you don't create a ban to discourage use of the park. You are discriminating against KIDS in your own community.

  1375. i think this a completely ridiculus decision by the city. possibly their decision may have come from more accidents or injurys, thats dumb to hate on bmxers. honestly what skatepark have you been to in the last 20 years that doesent say SKATE AT YOUR OWN RISK? parents if you allow your kids 8-15years old to go to a skatepark for the first time you should read the sign first and watch before you actually bring your kids to the park

  1376. This is stupid. Trucks from skateboards do just as much damage, if not more, to the concrete than bikes do. I BMX and I'm cool with skaters and stuff, but they seem to damage things a little bit more than pegs do.

  1393. Pegs cause MORE damage than trucks because the metal ends directly hit the ground and chip the concrete. I literally skate the park everyday and I see the damage happen over time. While trucks don't have metal ends that slam into the concrete and chip it. You can see the chipping for yourself if you look at the skatepark in person instead of just sitting here commenting while you've never even been there. So please understand that bikes ACTUALLY DO DESTROY the skatepark.

  1422. I have been rolling around etnies since day one in 03. After the bikes came pedaling in i saw damage build up over time. The concrete on the deck has chip damage four to three inches from the coping. A peg is about that length? You can roll over the hole but sometimes you will crash and burn. When you drop a skateboard down 13 feet it will chip up the deck but if a bike falls. What do you think what would happens. The medal will chip. Not the cement on the ground.

  1429. All the parks around here allow pegs, they are still in perfect condition, and riders and skateboarders get along great. Pegs don't damage the park, or cause injury if that's what you are worried about. They are part of our sport, parks are supposed to be a safe place where there are no stupid rules. You are forcing us to ride the streets and get ticketed.

  1439. I dont think that it is fair for the city of Lake Forest to ban the use of pegs because using pegs is part of the sport. The pegs are used for about 50% of the tricks in the sport, and by bannig the pegs is like limiting what the riders can learn and practice.

  1443. It used to be "skateboarding is not a crime" now I want to say BMX is not a crime. I get it - steel pegs can potentially gouge the cement. Trucks are aluminum and lighter and do not pose the same threat. Banning BMX was the city's easy way to shut the complainers up. Once you complain, privileges are completely revoked. Just wrong. Let us ride!!!
