    Forte Pro Mag pedal help

    Heres a link to this pedal,
    http://www.performancebike.com/shop/...tegory_ID=5245

    Tried to adjust the new pedal with first ride on it, must have over adjusted it as the adjustment screw backed out and the small piece of metal that holds the screw against the adjustment spring fell off? Should I just return this to Perf? Tried to get the metal holding piece back onto the screw but you have to hold the spring down while doing this and for me its almost impossible the metal piece kept falling off.
    Hate to send this back but I don't know if I bought the best pedal afetr all this? If theres a simple answer for this, let me know. Thanks.

    Try calling Performance's 800-number and ask for tech service. They are quite knowledgable, particularly about their house-brand items, and should be able to tell you if there is an easy fix.

    That pedal looks just like a Wellgo MG-8 which I have used. By not paying attention while adjusting I did the same thing, but was able to reassemble using various tools and a lot of swearing. Don't remember exactly what I did, but it involved somehow holding the spring back with a large flat screwdriver while using my other hand to position and insert the screw into the plate. Performance is supposed to have a great returns policy, so you might see if they will send you a replacement.
