    Time Atac Spanner Wrench

    I read the instructions on Time Atac pedals I purchased a few days ago and the manufacturer claims they require no maintenance besides wiping mud off the outside. I'm extremely skeptical, based on experience with other pedals. There is a cap on the pedal that has several small holes in it. Has anyone on the forum MacGuyvered a tool for this or can one be bought? I could not find a spanner wrench that small at Performance.

    So far I like the pedals although I did grind one into the pavement on a sharp turn and it shaved off a big chunk of composite. They seem way more solid than my last pedals which lasted six months - Eggbeaters.

    I have just clamped 2 awl's in a vise in the correct placement. Has worked like a charm for me. They have a very good bearing system. Other than tightening and a little grease I have done nothing service wise to mine. Going on 3 years racing.

    The key to happiness is not in having more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.

    I just screw a couple of spokes into opposite holes. Then grab the spokes with a pair of pliers and unscrew the cap. The cap isn't that tight so it shouldn't be too hard to find something that works. A cheap pair of circlip pliers would probably work.
