Merritt is an East Coast USA brand that makes BMX parts. Their team is a diverse mix of styles – they’ve got trails legend Brian Foster aka the Blue Falcon on the squad, then they’ve also got guys like Brandon Begin and Billy Perry… There’s a whole world of BMX between those two groups! For the purposes of this Merritt GFE peg review, we’ll be focusing more on the latter.
Brandon Begin might look like a confused homeless man, but he’s clearly got some skills on a BMX bike. Apart from famously eating a whole load of shit while trying to half-cab ‘El Toro’, his approach to street riding sees him do some pretty unlikely moves on whatever setup he finds. Totally new-school, progressive street style. You know the drill. A lot of Brandon Begin’s freshest moves are accomplished using the Merritt GFE pegs, so we’ve got some here to check out.
“Merritt GFE Pegs… GFE = Grind Forever?”
You can get these pegs in a length of 4.75”. That is LONG. Expect crooked grinds and spins out of grinds to be just a touch easier with that extra length. They also come in a 4.25” size.
