question about bicycle part

Hey all, do you know the name of the 2 tubes attached to the rear wheel of the bicycle for one to stand on?

surely you cant mean ‘stunt’ pegs?

hah I think they are indeed called ‘stunt pegs’. can they actually support the weight of another passenger on a bicycle?

If the axle on the bike is cheap it will bend under the weight of a passenger, especially if the passenger is heavy and the road/trail is bumpy. Pegs are typically mounted to the ends of the axle.

Pegs are not meant for standing on, that’s asking to get hurt, they are for grinding and other tricks done with BMX bikes.

and yet people contuinily stand on them just using them as a way to give there lazy selvs and one lucky other a ride.
