Broke a pedal off the old beater and, once I removed the "nub", tried to thread another set of pedals in. No-Go! Knowing better than to force it, I took the old set to the LBS and found out that the thred pattern is "French" vs. std. english.
After computing all of the permutations of cranks, BB, etc. and figuring that those also will be french threads, I have surmised that a new set of french threaded pedals will be the easiest (and probably cheapest way to go.
The LBS can't seem to find any. Any thoughts?
