Hoffman Day Smith Loc’ed pegs were the signature flatland pegs that were released for HB Team rider / flatlander Day Smith. They were alloy pegs geared towards a flatland audience.
There are 2 versions of these pegs. I’m going to call them V1 (usa made) and V2 (taiwan made). This stands for version 1 and version 2. V2 pegs have two different variations for front and rear. The front and rear pegs for V2 are very similar but the rear pegs have had the tapered section removed near the dropouts and are now flat for better surface area connection to the dropouts (see the pics on the v2 section, you’ll understand).

RELEASE DATE: These were around mid 95 ish. It’s not an exact date, it’s just a rough estimate. The blueprint below was drawn in Feb 1995, so sometime in the months after that i guess they would have made it to market.
This page used to have some unconfirmed information about where the different versions of these were made. It’s since been confirmed. V1 pegs were made in USA, and were outsourced to a machine shop in Dallas to be made. V2 pegs were made in Taiwan. Even though the V2 pegs come in bags with Made in USA header cards, they were in fact made in Taiwan. I’m guessing Hoffman Bikes were just reusing the leftover header cards they had made.
