How to Fix a Bike Pedal
Have you ever been out on a bike ride and had one of your pedals come loose? It can be a real pain trying to fix it while you’re out on the trail.
Fortunately, it’s a pretty easy fix as long as you have the right tools. In this post, we’ll show you how to fix a bike pedal in just a few simple steps.
What You’ll Need
Before you get started, you’ll need to gather a few tools:
- A hex wrench set
- A rotten cloth or rag
- A new pedal (if the old one is beyond repair)
Remove the Old Pedal
Use the hex wrench to remove the old pedal. If the pedal is very rusty, you may need to use some elbow grease to get it loose. Be careful not to strip the threads. Once the old pedal is off, clean up the threads with the cloth or rag.
Attach the New Pedal (or Reattach the Old One)
Now it’s time to reattach the pedal. If you’re using a new pedal, make sure that the threads are properly aligned before screwing it in place. Use the hex wrench to tighten the pedal in place. Again, be careful not to strip the threads.
If you’re reusing the old pedal, make sure that it’s still in good condition before attaching it. If there are any cracks or damage, it’s best to replace it with a new one.
Once the new pedal is in place, give it a few good spins to make sure that it’s attached securely. And that’s it! You’ve now successfully fixed your bike pedal.
