    What size spindle for Jamis Commuter 1 pedals

    Hey everyone, I have a 2010 Jamis Commuter 1.

    The nylon pedals are ripped, and I got some WD40 overspray on them that won't seem to come off, so they are slippery too... anyone tried riding with slippery ripped pedals? Not very fun/safe is it?

    I look around on the web and could not find out if the spindle size is 1/2 or 9/16. I measured the hole size on the crank arm and it appears to be 1/2, but when I measure the pedal (including the threads) it appears to be 9/16.

    Anyone know what size the spindle thread is? I need new pedals fast. It's scary riding around like this...

    actually, my measurements are kinda sketchy. I don't have a measuring caliper, just a tape measure...

    most bikes use a pedal with 9/16" threading.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    It's like that old TV ad. You're both right. A 9/16" pedal will measure 9/16" on the outside. The corresponding hole in the crank will be nearer to 1/2", the 1/16" difference being the height of the thread. If you needed 1/2" pedals - which I doubt - the hole in the crank would be about 7/16" in diameter.
