This shifter peg replaces a well-known peg with rubber inserts, that put nice big black spots on my left boot. This peg has beautiful chrome plating, is polished mirror-smooth, and installs easily in about two minutes, removing the shifter to do so. The Allen head on the end of the threaded stud eliminates the exposed screwhead on the outside, cleaning up the appearance nicely. The ball-milled fluting design harmonizes well with other pieces on the bike and looks perfect in place. No more black smudges!
