Lets talk about stepping pegs. The type that threaded on to the axle shaft. They seem like a cool accessory. Has anyone reproduced them? Of course Old is better but they must be rather rare and pretty specific as thread count.

This is I believe an original 1897 Sterling. The nickel is worn from use. 3/8 x 24tpi. I also believe they disappeared once the coaster came into being. No more need for them if you can use the pedal instead. I've always heard them called "mounting pegs."

We call them "mounting pegs" too on my side of the pond.
Purely used for mounting your trusty 'pushbike'.

Pushbike is right. What a loverly language.

Nice ordinary, I saw a guy use one of those mounting pegs a little too enthusiastically a couple of years ago; he pushed off, sprang up and went straight over the other side of his saddle. Luckily he landed in the bed of an adjacent pickup truck and didn't fall too far. His ego was mightily bruised however.

Thanks dnc. 1881 Standard. But back to the thread. Any pegs to show?
