    Pedal compatable?

    I now own (and love) an old Fuji Tivoli. I'd like to swap out the existing toe clip pedals to a model identified as a VP-R70 clip in pedals (look compatable) that are available at a very reasonable price. My question is will these pedals fit my crank? The only other identification I can find says 85-91MM. Can ya'll help? The crank on my bike is identified as an Sakae-SX.

    I do understand I'll need to upgrade my cycling shoes too so advise is very welcomed.

    Thanks,

    Ken

    Yes, they'll fit.

    By far, the most common pedal thread is 9/16" x 20tpi, right-hand thread on the right pedal, left-hand thread on the left pedal. From your description, I'd be 99.9% certain that the pedals and cranks have the same thread. It's about the most universal "standard" you'll find on bikes.
