PEDALS TAKE SIDES SOME ARE RIGHT SOME ARE LEFT or how to remove pedals
Many amateur mechanic make the mistake of switching sides when re-installing pedals. Pedals have a different thread pattern on the left and right side. The right side pedal is installed and removed the usual way, clockwise in and counter clockwise out. The left side goes in counter clockwise and comes out clockwise. The left side is reversed thread. Both pedals are usually marked near the thread with a "L" and a "R" to identify them. Take note that pedals come in two different sizes threadwise. Bring the old ones with you if you need to replace them. The tool you will need for pedals is a 15mm open wrench.
Until next time, ride safe.
