    URGENT! Snafu Concave Pedals - 1/2 Inch

    Do you know if the Snafu Concave Pedals - 1/2 Inch will fit an On-ne ******* 3peice steel crank?

    Generally if you dont kow about the pedals then do you know if 1/2 inch is the standard for pedals, cos thats what my crank takes? Obviously then il kow if i can fit em or not.

    Thanks

    1/2 inch is pretty much THE standard on 3 pc cranks these days. There are also 9/16 inch, but you seldom if ever see them on new stuff.
    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!

    9/16" IS the standard on current road and MTB.

    I agree with Pokey on this one. 1/2" is for 1 piece cranks, 9/16" for three piece cranks.

    Walt is right. 1/2" is usually only found on 1 piece cranks. Every three piece crank upgrade I have ever done has required a new set of pedals in the 9/16" variety.

    Your bike mechanic is wise beyond your wildest dreams.

    If you can't be good at one sport then you can be okay at three.

    Most every current ATB and MTB made with the exception of some dept store rigs use 9 1/16" pedals. Bikes that use 1/2" are typically BMX also they are not just found on one oiece cranks. I jut bolted up a set of Profile Race 3 piece cranks that uses 1/2" pedals. There are alot of BMS specific 3 piece cranks that use 1/2" pedals.

    Hi PP, any idea why BMX would go 1/2" pedals?

    Axle spindle breaks were common in early BMX days and I don't know of any clipless pedals available in 1/2" which would mean you're crippled in the Nationals.

    I'm not saying you're wrong, just looking for rationale and it sounds like you're up on the information.

    Thanks.
