Anyone who has run metal pegs before ever trying plastic pegs has probably wondered if they could just slide a piece of PVC tubing over their peg to get the same effect. in fact it’s been done a time or two. Fit Bike Co. have released their new PVC Peg that looks like a makeshift PVC slip on cover, but uses normal plastic sleeves. The PVC peg has a lightweight 4130 alloy steel core insert with an injection molded, plastic polymer sleeve. The peg has 14mm axle holes, but comes with an adaptor to fit 3/8″ axles as well. Also, if you have ever ran into the issue where you could barely fit a socket into the peg, you’ll be happy to know these fit 17mm and 19mm sockets no problem.
You can pick the PVC peg up in Black and White colors with a 4.5″ length and a price tag of $10.99 each with replacement sleeves available for $6.00 each as well through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Fit Bike Co. worldwide now.
