Thought about the PivotPegz, but my Achilles tendons bother me enough as it is, and I figured I didn't need the extra flexion exacerbating an already painful condition.
They did knock the spring peg off on my bike. Thankfully I was only a couple blocks from home. Ground the remaining nub down, drilled and tapped it - put a screw in. Peg now folds without hitting anything. What a pain in the ass if it happened on the trail.

I would recommend avoiding the Fastway pegs.
