Technique which works best for me (forget where I learned it - maybe Barnett's?):
- Align crank arms so that the arm with the pedal you're removing is horizontal & points toward the rear of the bike
- Apply pedal wrench [edit: extending forward, so wrench & opposite crank arm are side by side]
- Pull up on the wrench, push down on the opposite crank arm (which is extended toward the front of the bike)
That, and applying grease to the threads when installing pedals!
