Pedals

1. Identify the two pedals and prep for assembly

The Left pedal will have an “L” stamped on the end of the pedal bolt.

NOTE: The left pedal is reverse threaded and will tighten if rotated COUNTERclockwise to the left.  

The Right pedal will have an “R” stamped on the end of the pedal bolt.

NOTE: The right pedal will tighten if rotated clockwise to the right.

Add a dab of grease to thinly coat the threads of both pedal bolts.

Set the pedals aside.


2. Thread the RIGHT pedal into the RIGHT crank arm

Pinch the pedal bolt between the threads and pedal body.

NOTE: The pedal body rotates freely around the threads. If you turn just the pedal body it will not rotate the threads!

Take the threaded end and position it over the hole at the end of the right crank arm. 

NOTE: The threads might not catch at first. Take a deep breath, line up the threads as straight as possible, and try again.

Rotate the threads clockwise by hand as much as you can.

You can lift the bike and rotate the crank arm into a different position if you think it will be easier or give you more leverage.


3. Tighten the RIGHT pedal with a 15mm open end wrench

Fit the wrench over the same spot where your fingers were.

Tighten as much as you can.

No but really, tighten as much as you can.


4. Thread the LEFT pedal into the LEFT crank arm

Repeat step 2 with the left pedal.

Remember to rotate the threads COUNTER-clockwise.


5. Tighten the left pedal with a 15mm open end wrench

Repeat step 3 with the left pedal.

Remember to rotate the threads COUNTER-clockwise.
