Locations for sports tap steel pegs

Since these steel pegs are used on different bikes and motorcycles, they do get installed in different places on the bike. They are used as foot petals, but some riders like them installed on the front wheel, some like them on the back wheel, some like them on both wheels, and then there is also the buddy foot pegs. The sports tap steel pegs that are made for buddy foot pegs are placed on the bike frame, basically between the bike seat and regular pedals. These are so that an additional person can ride on the bike along with the actual person pedaling the bike.

How most riders use the sports tap steel pegs

The general reason for installing sports tap steel pegs on a sports bike or motorcycle is for doing tricks, street grinding, and transporting. The pegs provide extra places to put your feet and create versatility in using the rest of the bike. For instance, using the pegs placed on the back wheels, the rider may stand on the back pegs and spin the front frame of the bike around. Or they may stand on the rear pegs and pull up on the handlebars to perform a “wheelie”. As far as grinding goes, the steel pegs are ideal for grinding on concrete ledges because of their strength. Standing on the back pegs while grinding is called an “icepick” grind. The most convenient use for the sports tap steel pegs is to transport other passengers. If a passenger stands on the back pegs, they can hold onto the rider’s shoulders while they are riding.
