alot of people run pegs on 3/8 axles with out problems. why do you need to switch forks and wheels?

i use a 3/8 on the front, have done for the past 8 months, i haven't bent the axle on smiths, now im pegless it won't even matter. So don't worry to much.

You can get slotted axles for your 14mm so you don't have to switch out forks.

3/8 has been around 4 ever dude i rock a 14 mm but never used to and never had a prob with 3/8 its mainly important to have a 14 mm axle while grinding i dont know why you would want to switch forks back and forth i would drill the 3/8 forks out to fit 14mm axle if you like those forks better why make more work for yourself

I only use 3/8 up front for the past 7 years ive been riding street(with pegs). I now have a Gsport marmoset which is holding up to my peg well, it also is very flush and a really strong axle design(20mm 3piece axle).

yup it will be fine. but i did have a friend that snapped his front when in 3 places and he rides flatland. i have no idea how he managed that.

I've run a race hub in front pegless for almost a year, and I'm not smooth at all. nothing wrong with it yet.
