Could I be hallucinating? I put some cheap metal wellgo pedals (cages) on my bike without any problems. When I went to take them off one of them came off fine, the other one didn't fit into the pedal wrench. I got it off with a crescent wrench instead, so there's no actual problem. But I'm new to this bicycle repair thing and wonder if it's typical for things to be that out of whack.
Or am I doing something stupid? (again).
