Cheap – Aluminum Anti-slip Solid Bicycle Axle Foot Pegs (Pair / Silver) Reviews

Pros:
They are cheap, and look kind of nice.
Cons:
The alloy is extremely soft and damages easily.
On my set, they are marked to be "8x1.5" which I took to be the diameter and thread pitch. It is a 8mm hole, but the ones I received did not have a 1.5mm thread pitch, it wasn't even 1.25mm, it was something else. To correct this, I simply ran a tap through them.
Other:
I would recommend putting them on axles because a 8mm axle could bend with weight on the peg.
Bottomline:
I used these for a custom build--mount peg on a tall bike--and for a custom build they are great. Though, other than that, the only other use I could see for them is children pegs.
