How to replace the pedals?August 15, 2009
Can I get advice on replacing the pedals of a bicycle? It's too hard for me.
This is a very simple repair of the bike, but check before you start whether the thread of the new pedals will fit to the pedal lever. Due to the lack of a single standard, pedal carving for different bikes may differ. Since the pedals also differ in size, choose the right one for you. When removing the old pedals can be difficult if the thread is rusted. Then moisten them with an anti-rust agent.
Note that the left pedal is unscrewed in a clockwise direction, and the right one - against. New pedals are marked with letters R and L (right = right, left = left).
Apply to the threads before screwing the pedals a thick lubricant that lasts longer than the liquid.
