Getting Pegs Off

Hey guys...this might sound like a stupid question but how the hell do you get pegs off? I don't use them at all so there just dead weight. Any help is appreciated.

Find a socket that fits them and just get them off. Getting pegs off is not quite rocket science.

All mine have is a nut in the middle...which I'm guessing is the axel bolt but I can't reach it with any tool.

Get a socket extender or just a long socket.

If I were you, I'd just learn to grind. Grinding is a lot of fun.

Duder, get a X-wrench like you would use to change a car tire, some of those have the correct size and are more than long enough, and you mayu already have one.

I might put them back on later on but not now cause I just got into BMXing and in all honesty...I suck. Hell I've only been to a skatepark once so far.

But yeah I got them off...had to borrow an extender from a friend.

I've still never been to a skatepark. I ride street, so pegs are a big tool for me.

I though street and park were the same thing? Guess the proves how much I really know about BMX.

Ok so let me get this straight there: vert (so dirt jumps?), street, park, racing, and flatland right? Did I miss anything?
