14mm axle Plegs?

Hey guys, I was just wondering. I looked on danscomp and saw that the plegs are out, and that there is no 14mm choice for axle size. Does GSport even make them in 14mm, and if they do, will danscomp ever carry them?

I'd guess that just means Dan's is out of the 14mm plegs. Ody/GSport makes them & they've been hot sellers.

theres only 3/8th plegs, and plegs are not that great, tear up easily and they dont grind over skate stoppers that well

So am I to assume you have a lot of experience riding Plegs?
And they DO come in 14mm:

i am talking about albes and danscomp warehouses (where mostly everyone buys from), sorry i wasnt clear... they dont carry 14mm because 3/8th has became a trend in the front and 95% of bmxers run 2 pegs on one side or the pther, and plegs are sold separate so one 3/8th peg on the front and a wtp toxic, or eastern slit, or something like that on the back as a 14mm. they wont carry 14mm for a long time, until the demand raises.

Ok. That makes a lot of sense.
Wait, no it doesn't.

For over a year, the biggest question asked of Odyssey has been "When are Plegs coming out?" "When are Plegs coming out?" When they finally came out People were buying up to 6 at a shot. Just to make sure they would get them. I find it to be easier to believe that Dan's & such have sold out of 14mm for the time being. Why wouldn't people run the Pleg in back? And furthermore what crazy person would actually get an Eastern Slit peg?
Also how exactly are Plegs worse at going over skatestoppers than normal pegs?

that was the stupidest thing you could have said. you can't buy an adapter to make a 3/8th peg fit over a 14mm axle. You have to drill it out to make the hole bigger not get an adapter that would make the hole smaller. but you can't really drill out the pleg because of the metal piece it uses.

No, that was the stupidest you could of replied. Maybe they aren't called adapters but I'm talking about things I've seen where you screw this thing on the 14mm that has a mini axle sticking out that is 3/8

And even if there were such a thing, the peg wouldn't be flush with the frame/fork, and also more likely to bend, etc.

If you ask me, this fail was just as bad if not worse than fuzzyboxes.
