    Is it possible to rethread ?

    I have a pair of vintage campy track cranks, but the pedal thread on the non-drive side crank is off. When I try to put on pedals it stops threading about 1/8 of the way on and I don't want to force it. Is there anything I could do or do I have to find another crank arm ?

    Thanks,
    Gregg-o

    Any decent bike shop will have pedal taps that will fix you up.
    Today, I believe my jurisdiction ends here...

    Try running the pedal in from the back side of the crank. You might also want to use a different pedal, maybe a new one with good clean threads. That may clean up the threads enough to be able to put the pedal in from the front.
