    worked perfectly! thanks!

    Thanks for the tut! I am curious as to why you didn’t put non-plastic
    pedals, they’re just going to break again.

    After watching your video I was emboldened to strip, regrease & reassemble
    the pedals on my 1980 Claud Butler touring bike, which had been clicking
    and clacking for ages. Took forever (first time) and I lost a few bbs on
    the floor of the workshop, but brilliant results – smooth as silk and
    totally quiet. Like sorting toothache – thanks

    May the God of the Bible bless you, bro. You’re helpin’ out almost a
    million. Nice commentary summarizing the three possible failures of a
    pedal. This video was the first one in five or six I saw that had the
    right pedal and the kind of video I was looking for.

    Helpful and thorough – thanks. My pedal is gummed up and I needed something
    like this (with part 2) to know how to fix it.

    4:25 – That’s what I always say to myself when I’m lonely :(

    pedals are junk

    Thank you very much for this tutorial! I bought alloy pedals 2 months ago
    for $15 and today I noticed that one of them got a sand in it (in Poland
    we pour sand on the street in the winter). Now I know how to disassemble
    the pedal to clear it. Again THANK YOU!

    Thanks a lot. This really helped. I had go buy an expensive bike and its
    pedals got loose. I came here so i wouldn’t have to buy a new bike.

    fix it up then sell how much will i maybe get for it, and would it be worth
    fixing and selling bikes as my hobby thanks 🙂

  • By MindOfPagan, April 24, 2015 @ 4:36 pm

    This is exactly what I was looking for. I think. I hope. Thanks!

    Tighten both sides toward the front tire, loosen both sides toward the rear
    tire. A little more straight forward.

  • By SlippingDownMan, April 24, 2015 @ 5:32 pm

    Great video. I like your style – good pace, editing and well explained.
    Just what I was looking for and now my pedals are spinning well again. Nice
    touch with re-using components too. cheers from Gosford, north of Sydney

    is 12mm a common size for the axle nuts? I would have thought there’d be
    some standard size.

  • By cjhoylemusic, April 24, 2015 @ 6:34 pm

    @traingp7 These pedals are from my commuting bike. For that bike, the
    weight of my pedals certainly isn’t a concern. Also, I try not to invest
    very much money into bikes that I leave locked up in public places, less
    for me to lose if it ever gets stolen. I have clipless pedals on my
    mountain bike, but when I’m riding around town I prefer just wearing my
    regular shoes and this style of pedals. I don’t like to let anything go to
    waste. Anything is worth fixing if there is still life left in it!
