They'll get loose, believe me. Ride em for more than a couple days and they'll be looser than a 51-year old French whore.

why will they come loose? the nuts are on them just the same as the normal pegs but you screw these on as another option wouldnt this make them better!?

it just seems like if you screw something on as big as a peg to an axle that it would be easier to bend..but idk man...i don't run screw on pegs...

i think those threaded pegs are supposted to be a nut as well as a peg...which sucks...but if you just HAD to have threaded pegs in the first place i would still put the nut on there.

I found the snafu cro-mo unthreaded ones to be quite good. The have that six sided locking washer thing so when they wear right down you can spin em round. Quite light too, and of course they slide well.
