Grr i just wanna let anyone thats making due with a cheapy bike with screw pegs in on a little tip i learned the hard way. Use caution when grinding with them!! mainly on the left side cuz they will unscrew, and thats not a good thing! i highly recamend putting a nut on the axle on the out side of the peg to keep it from coming off, i was grinding on a 6x6 and it unscrewed and the axle hit the wood and i flipping over the handle bars.

I cant wait till i can aford a new bike!

Hey a bikes a bike. As long as you can go out and ride, it's fine.


Just as long as you buy a better one soon though.

First why would i buy pegs for a 3/8 inch axle when im gonna be getting a new bike with 14mm as soon as i can.

and i doubt they make reguler pegs for 3/8 inch axles, i could be wrong but ive never seen them.

Calm down, holy shit. It's the internet, dude.

Oh, and you were grinding wood with thread-on pegs? Not only are they thread on, but they're usually knurled, so they'd stick and you'd flip anyway. If I'm wrong, feel free to ignore me.
