It is important to fit the pedals to the correct side. The pedals are clearly marked on the end of the pedal shafts with an “L” for Left and an “R” for Right.
CAUTION – Take particular care to avoid cross threading by:
- Ensure the thread on end of pedal is aligned with the crank arm as you screw it in.
- Turn the pedal shaft by hand first to get the threads started.
- If you can’t screw it in by hand then it is likely cross threaded.
- Unscrew the pedal and make sure threads are aligned, and then try again.
- The pedals need to be securely tightened to avoid damage!
