Width at the foot pegs

At an event this past Saturday, one section had a 'notch' between two large rocks on my line. One could squeeze through the notch or drop off of one of the rocks. The drop wasn't too bad, you just needed to carry the front end a little to keep the skid plate clear on the way down. Looking at the two choices, the notch looked better to me. I brushed the pegs going through on the first loop and didn't make any contact on the next three. I saw only one other rider go that way and he hit pretty hard with his pegs going through.

That got me wondering about how much trials bikes vary in width at the foot pegs. My Scorpa measures 18 7/8 inches at the pegs. I'm curious about other bikes. If you're bored, please measure your peg width and post a reply. There's nothing to gain from this other than to satisfy my odd curiosity.

thanks!

2012 GasGas - 19"

1982 Cota 200 - 16.5"

I never noticed there was that much difference between them!

That was a fun trials Saturday, except maybe that hateful mud section.

Does the Cota have teeny tiny little pegs like a lot of vintage bikes do? That is a pretty big difference in width.

A good time indeed! I actually got lucky and cleaned section 5 (the mudder) once. Wasn't able to duplicate it though.

Like to see the pegs on a Beta rev 3. I always hated dragging those thru a notch!

I've got 18 and 1/2" on my Rev 3 with Hebo pegs. I highly recommend these over the stock ones. The stock ones are like cups for mud.

I measured the TR34 Campionato. 18 1/2" with the factory pegs. Seems like a common width. Makes me think there's a reason. Might be a compromise between balance and width.

New Windsor is always fun. I wasn't a fan of section 7! Ouch!

Since mine are getting a bit beat I was thinking of getting a set of Costa pegs, bit pricy but they seem really tough and grippy.

Measured a 315r Montesa today at 18 1/2 inches.

Interesting how close they all seem to be. I'd like to measure some vintage bikes also.

1983 Cota 349 - 18.25" x 1.25"

1982 SWM TL320 - 16.0" x 1.25"

I had to measure the SWM 3 times before I believed it! I think some modified pegs are in order.
