How to Replace Bicycle Pedals
There are many reasons why you might need to replace the pedals on your bike. Maybe you’re upgrading to a new pedal system, or maybe your old pedals are just worn out and need to be replaced.
Either way, replacing bicycle pedals is a relatively easy process that anyone can do with a few simple tools.
In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the steps of how to replace bicycle pedals so that you can get back on the road (or trail) as soon as possible.
- Start by removing the old pedals from your bike. To do this, you’ll need a pedal wrench or a 15mm wrench. Place the wrench over the end of the pedal axle and turn it counterclockwise until the pedal comes free. Repeat this process for the other pedal.
- Next, thread the new pedals onto the axle threads. Make sure that you thread them on correctly – most pedals have left and right threads that are not interchangeable. Use the pedal wrench or 15mm wrench to tighten each pedal hand-tight.
- Once both pedals are threaded onto the axle, use the wrench to tighten them further. With both pedals tightened, spin each one by hand to make sure that they’re not too tight or too loose. You don’t want them so tight that they’re difficult to turn, but you also don’t want them so loose that they could come unscrewed while you’re riding.
- And that’s it! You’ve now successfully replaced your bicycle pedals and are ready to hit the road (or trail). Enjoy the ride!
