ASK THE BMXPerts: DOUBLE PEG GRINDS
Bookmark and Share

Hi, my name is Chris Chan. I am 13 years of age. Over in Michigan, winter is done and spring is just settling in. I have managed to get some street sessions in with my bros, but one thing I just can’t get is a double peg grind. I am pretty sure it’s like a bunny hop (Front wheel up, then fallow up with the back end) but I’m not sure and I knew you were the guys to go to in a situation like this. Keep it up,
Chris Chan Miller. 

ANS- Sounds like you are on the right track Chris. The best place to start is with stalls. Find a low ledge and try hopping onto it from the side and stalling. This trick is all about balance and confidence in your peg placement, so if you can hop in and out of stalls, without putting your foot down, you are ready for the next step; speed. Try rolling slowly and hopping into the same ledge. Don’t worry about going far, just on, then off, without touching. Again, build your confidence and then work distance into it with more speed and balance. If you are doing double pegs on rails, the balance point is a little trickier as the bike can lean all the way over the rail without resistance, so keeping your body weight centered is key. One more trick to both rails and ledges is not to “over hop” or jump higher then necessary. Keep your hops minimal, look through your grind (end of the ledge or rail) and trust your pegs. Now go shred Mr. Chan.
