Ok so recently for my birthday I got a set of pegs. I've had pegs before and I installed the back peg with no problem. On the other hand the front peg will not fit long wise. I put the adapter on it fits diameter wise but the adapter takes up more space and the nut and washer don't fit on... So are most axles the same length? I'm thinking of buying the LA Casa front Axle will this be decently long? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Maybe take out the washer? As far as I know Axels are all the same length

I'm guessing they're 14mm pegs with a tophat washer for 10mm axles? You'd be better off buying a peg for 10mm axles as using a washer with a peg is more likely to bend your axle. And some of those tophat washers look a bit flimsy to me. The thickness of the material on that part of the peg could be thicker too

If you have a short front axle, I'm guessing it came off a lower priced complete bike front wheel, so I'm also guessing that it is a loose ball bearing hub.

If that is the case you could replace it with the La Casa Axle #10, which may help. It is 145mm in length, so measure your old axle and see if this is longer.

A better solution if you have a loose ball bearing front wheel would be just to grab a new La Casa front wheel. It will come with a sealed bearing, female hub (much stronger and better for pegs), and a single wall rim for $69.99 or a double wall rim for $89.99 (much stronger!).

If you don't have a good local bike shop that can help you with this, feel free to hit us up!

For $22, you're better off getting a completely new hub and building that up. $22 for a front axle is WAY too much, considering it's for an unsealed hub and who knows what material that generic brand is made of?

Keep in mind that's $22 in Canadian, not US. I think it's closer to $15 for USD but I'm not sure, which wouldn't be THAT much for a sealed axle... but for an unsealed one, I think I'd just save for a new hub like you said. It'd be better in the long run, be stronger, & last longer.
