Thanks for the insite... I have yet to have a problem but my goal is not to do wheelies and jam on the rear brake. I will keep it in mind when trying to back the bike in.

Well, be a genius and take advantage of the marketing opportunity I just handed out.

Do stunt pegs really need to hinge? or would you just have a custom set that didnt?
You could even design a delrin(sp?) slider on the end...another point of protection.

Just a thought.

I would try another brand of rearset, Gilles are more expensive, but they are top-notch gear. I personally would get Attack Performance parts- expensive again, but less than the Gilles (since I sell it, I get a discount too, so that helps...).

CFM Woodcraft have always worked very well for me, and are very durable. They don't make an "adjustable" set, but I have always done very well with what they sell.

My current bike has Vortex, but I'm probably going to keep them for spares and splurge on the Attack Performance sets.
I wanted Attack but they did not have adjustables for my bike at the time. :eh:

i got the newest ones, and sold them in three months after paying the innitial 350 dollars for them and 150 for the parts that kept braking

It seems like someone could draft a set in autocad and have them made somewhere...but yeah, prolly pretty pricey.

Maybe we should start a company...

I have also heard that Vortex are not that great and that people have been having problems with them. I plan to put Sato's on my bike.

If you can get the correct CAD program for a CNC machine, most machine shops will charge you for the use of the machine + materials, design and programing are the most expensive parts of production for these things.
how much is it roughly for one set?

I just see a wide market from stunter(big bikes and 50s) and perhaps even some of the TMGP folks might be interested in super strong pegs.
But youre right, design and fabrication would be a biotch.

I agree 100%... we could probably make this happen if enough people got together and really tried to make it work.
