Put one foot on top of the peg, and then use your other foot to push down on the peg until it clicks into place.
Most BMX and freestyle riders prefer to have their feet in the air when riding, so they need some way to keep their feet from slipping off the pedals. One way to do this is to install bike pegs on the front and/or rear wheel axles.
Pegs are available in different lengths, diameters, and materials. The most common materials are steel and aluminum. There are also plastic pegs available, but these are not as durable.
The length of the peg is not as important as the diameter. The diameter should be large enough to provide a good grip, but not so large that it interferes with the spokes. Most pegs are between 1 and 1.5 inches in diameter.
The width of the axle will determine the size of the bolts needed to install the pegs. Most axle bolts are 3/8 or 1/2 inch in diameter.
Installing pegs is a relatively simple process. First, remove the axle bolts and washers from the wheel. Next, slide the pegs onto the axle. Be sure to put the washers back on before threading on the axle bolts.
Tighten the axle bolts until they are snug, but be careful not to overtighten them. You don’t want to strip the threads.
Once the pegs are installed, you’re ready to start riding! Just be sure to practice safe riding and always wear a helmet
How Do I Put On My Bike Pegs?
Put one foot on each peg.
1. Start by standing your bike up on its kickstand or leaning it against a wall.
2. If your bike has reflectors on the wheels, remove them from the axle with a Phillips head screwdriver.
3. Next, using an adjustable wrench, loosen the axle nuts until they are loose enough to turn by hand.
4. Once the axle nuts are loose, remove the old pegs (if there are any) by unscrewing them from the axle.
5. To install the new pegs, screw them onto the axle by hand until they are tight.
6. Finally, use the adjustable wrench to tighten the axle nuts until they are snug.
7. Replace the reflectors (if applicable) and you’re done!
Do I Need To Put Anything On My Bike Pegs Before I Ride?
No, you do not need to put anything on your bike pegs before you ride.
It’s a common question –
Do I need to put anything on my bike pegs before I ride?
The answer is no, you don’t need to put anything on your bike pegs before you ride. However, some people choose to put tape or other materials on their bike pegs to help with grip or to prevent slipping. If you decide to put something on your bike pegs, make sure it’s something that won’t damage the finish on your bike.
How Do I Know If My Bike Pegs Are On Correctly?
There should be an equal amount of space on either side of the peg when viewed from the front or back of the bike.
1. Get a friend to help you. With one person holding the bike steady, the other can check to see if the pegs are secure.
2. Try to wiggle the peg. If it moves, it’s not tight enough.
3. Try to pull the peg out. If it comes out easily, it’s not tight enough.
4. Check the bolts that hold the peg in place. If they are loose, tighten them with a wrench.
5. Once you’re sure the peg is tight, try to ride the bike. If the peg comes loose while you’re riding, you could have an accident.
What Is The Best Way To Put On Bike Pegs?
The best way to put on bike pegs is to put them on the axles of the bike.
Most BMX bikes have pegs that can be used for tricks. You might be wondering how to put them on, and it’s actually quite simple. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to do it.
1. Start by taking off the bike’s axle nuts. You will need a wrench for this.
2. Once the axle nuts are off, you can remove the wheel.
3. Next, take the peg and insert it into the hole on the axle.
4. Put the wheel back on, and then screw on the axle nuts. Make sure they are tight so the peg doesn’t fall off.
