Can't find pegs that fit

So, I've got a Diamondback Viper (1999), and I like it alright. Thing is, I've got a pair on some generic Mongoose pegs on the back, and I was trying to move one to the front so I could grind, but the diameter is too big (it won't sit flush). So, I looked at both bike shops in town, neither of which caters to BMX, and found nothing that fits the front of my bike.

Can anyone recommend a good small diameter peg for street riding? Does it make a difference that they'll be smaller than the ones in the back? I'd give you the diameter limit, but my bike's a few states away right now (I'm on the road) so I can't very well measure it at the moment.

Thanks,
-K

Just grind a spot away on the peg so it clears the fork leg. And don't use screw on pegs for grinding.
