Ride BMX – Products You Can’t Miss: Fashionably Light Pegs


We missed this the other week when Ride BMX compiled a list of 14 products you can’t miss and included our popular Fashionably Light pegs. These bad boys are forged heat treated chromoly and offset at the centre, making the material thinner at the top than the bottom. The result is a very light weight steel peg that weighs about the same as an aluminum, but slides way better. Just follow the directions to run one side up and you’re golden. 4″ long and 35mm diameter in 3/8″ or 14mm in a bunch of colours. Hit up your MacNeil dealer to pick them up individually.
