I figure this is something I can do myslef and not have to pay the LBS to do.
Main question: is the bolt connecting the pedal to the crank reverse-threaded? I've tried both ways and I just can't loosen the sucker. I've had to stop trying for fear I might break something or strip out the head of the hex bolt. I have no idea what the make of the pedals or crank arm is (is that the right word for the part the pedal is attached to?). I do know that the frameside part of the pedal has a hex bolt, and the outside part of the pedal where it meets the crank arm seems to require a crescent wrench. Do I need to use a crescent wrench and an allen wrench in tandem? Could it just be super, super tight?
Any and all suggestions welcome.
(I mean, how hard can it be?)
