Re: Very slowly amassing King Bike Company products....

Finally finished, I switched out the pedals for a black pair of Peregrines. Pretty happy with it.

Re: Very slowly amassing King Bike Company products....

My riding buddy gave me these in the late 90's around the time he quit riding flatland.  As far as I know, KING pegs and "Queen" pegs (steel and aluminum). Also pictured:  Trend peg, Primo peg, and 4 St. Martin pegs.

I also had a set of 4 Standard Hand grenades which I sold a few years ago. So, I know the steel ones are not Standard. The knurling was different.

Having glasses has its advantages... you can walk into a party full of girls who are 6's and 7's, take your glasses off and they instantly become 8's and 9's

Re: Very slowly amassing King Bike Company products....

What was the story on King?  Why did they go away so quickly?  They made great stuff that I remember being very well liked back in the day.  Without the Liberty frame there wouldn't have been a Barcode.

I heard it was just Stuart King himself kinda took a break from riding just after he blew up, like 1996-ish?   I had a KING Bikes T-shirt, but it's long gone....

Re: Very slowly amassing King Bike Company products....

I don't know why that hasn't sold, it's been for sale for a long time.

If I didn't already have one, I would've jumped on that ages ago.

There was difficulty with the partnership that was King bikes. To my recollection, Stuart was still young, very opinionated and difficult to deal with. I don't know the exact details of the split but I know that the money partner is a super cool guy and wouldn't have abandoned it. It just became difficult. EVERYONE loved King Bike Co. products! Joe Rich was one of them. He rode a King Liberty for a long time. Hence the T-1's lengths and geometry.


Currently in production of some bad-ass POOR BOY reproduction item! Shirts, gyro covers and hats first! Padsets soon to come!

I have the other King that he was selling, the frame is perfect no dings, no dents, no grind marks and still has the original 3/8" dropouts. I have all the parts to build it just not enough time lol It will be loaded with King parts and other great mid school pieces. smile

Re: Very slowly amassing King Bike Company products....

Speaking of King Bike...I had two pairs of their pegs back in the day and they were the jam as far as innovative pegs. If I'm not mistaken, they were the first (or one of) to incorporate a tensioner into the peg - great idea still. However, their pegs must have been made out of butter because I literally sheared my peg off. I was riding one day, did some grind of some sort and heard a noise and saw my peg (- the bit the axle nut was holding against the frame) rolling on the ground. For the longest time I kept that part of the peg on my key ring as a reminder of my manhood. smile Anyone else have this happen to them? I'm not "hard" on parts, so maybe I got a bad batch?
