I will need to remove the pedals while transporting my bike to where I am touring. To save space and weight on my tour, I purchased a 6 inch crescent wrench. I just tried removing my pedals and it was impossible. I had to use a box end wrench to remove the pedals.
- How tight do the pedals need to be when I reattach them (sorry I am not going to carry a torque wrench ). Will I be able to get them sufficiently tight with my crescent wrench?
- What made the pedals so tight? Was it my gorilla LBS or was it just use?
- If use, how long will it take before I cannot remove the pedals with my sissy little crescent wrench?
- Should I just invest in a pedal wrench and carry that?
