How do you remove pedals without a pedal wrench?
Can you remove pedals from bike?
Use a pedal wrench or hex key to unscrew the pedals from the crank arms. Right pedals loosen by turning counter-clockwise, left pedals loosen clockwise. Apply bike grease to the new pedals and screw them in at an even 90 degree angle. Right pedals tighten by turning clockwise, left pedals tighten counter-clockwise.
How do you remove a stock pedal?
Turn pedal wrench counter-clockwise to remove right pedal or turn crank so the pedal is pedaling forward. Use care not to abrade skin. Continue to turn wrench counter-clockwise and remove pedal completely from crank. Rotate bike as necessary until left pedal is easily accessed.
What can I use instead of a pedal wrench?
Pedal wrenches wouldn’t exist if standard open end wrenches fit most all pedals. Instead of generic pedal wrenches, there would be special Brand X or Brand Y wrenches made specifically to fit the few kinds of pedals that you couldn’t remove with standard wrenches.
How do you remove stubborn bike pedals?
Can you use a regular wrench for bike pedals?
Depending on what pedals you have, you might be able to use a regular combination wrench instead (most pedals are 15mm). The right (drivetrain side) pedal has regular threading (clockwise turns tighten it; counter-clockwise turns loosen it).
Are all bike pedals 15mm?
Almost all good quality pedals require a 15 mm wrench and are threaded 9/16″ x 20tpi. Most good quality pedal wrenches are 15 mm only. Those that take a 9/16″ wrench are mostly on cheap “Department Store” quality bikes or on older American bikes with Ashtabula cranks and are threaded 1/2″ x 20 tpi.
What size wrench do I need to change bike pedals?
Pedal wrench flats are typically 15mm in size. 9/16″ (~14.3mm) is somewhat common on older pedals. 17mm and other sizes have been used, but you aren’t very likely to encounter them.
