I am new to bmx and just bought diamond back 14mm pegs. They fit snuggly on my back axle but have about a millimeter or two of wiggle room on my front axle. If I put the peg on my front axle will it bend my front axle or be fine after it is tightened down behind the nut securing it?

Your front axle is a 10mm, that's why there is extra room. You can get some adapters for cheap to make your pegs fit snug or you can just run them they way they are. I never had a problem running a 14mm peg on a 10mm axle.


I love my bike but i hate myself

Yeah what blaaaaaaa said... you need a 14 to 10 mm adapter... or get 10mm (3/8th) front pegs.


I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

I'd get an adapter-you could try a local hardware store and see if they have anything-bring your peg and your wheel in.

Or hit up a local bike shop and spend a bit more (still only a few bucks).
