With regards to pedal extenders and crank eyes. Does the use of a pedal extender and the resulting extra torque on the pedal eye become a concern for the pedal eye on the crank arm breaking? has anyone broken a crank eye whilwt using a pedal extender?

Thanks and cheers

It's very exciting, we just sold a set of Pedal Extenders in Iceland, that makes 14 countries that we have sold our Pedal Extenders in, when my husband and I first started making and selling our Pedal Extenders, I never dreamed that we would be selling these Pedal Extenders around the world. I am very excited and happy.

I'd think it would only be an issue if the rider is putting out alot of power to begin with.

Out of curiosity do these have a weight limit or no?

We have not officially tested them for weight limits. We did put them in a 20 ton press. The crank arm broke and the extender didn't. But once the crank arm broke we didn't test it an further. Hope this helps.
