Like the title says I'm having trouble putting pegs on my stubby little axles. Anyone have any experience with this? If so how did you get around it? Here's my front axle Photo

Here's my rear axle

Sorry for the crappy pictures. But on the front hub there's only like 2 and 1/2 threads with just the washer and nut on it so I know there's no way I can get a peg on it but the rear axle there's enough for a peg but I don't want to only have back pegs. Lol.

You're supposed to remove the axle nut off then put the peg on then put the axle nut on.

probably wouldnt hurt too much to take the washer out if you have to. my recommendation would be hit up your lbs and see if they have any narrower locknuts (the ones that touch the inside of the dropout). steel frames can flex a bit so narrowing your hubs a few mm to expose another few threads should be fine.
