    How can I determine thread size of pedals?

    I need to replace my pedals on my hybrid bicycle.
    My stock pedals won't accept a set of toe clips that I want to try-out.
    I need to know the size of my pedal threads to order the correct replacement pedals.
    I see common sizes of pedal threads of 8/16 and 9/16, but there is no marking indicating which size my pedals are. All I see is a marking LU-206. Nothing definitive from a web search of that model#. I don't have a caliper to measure the threads.
    Perhaps someone has some on how I can determine the thread size I need for my replacement pedals

    95% chance of 9/16".

    What's the make/model/year of your bike?
    Crankset make/model can also help.

    Nevermind. Pedal part number is all that was needed. If the pic matches, it's 9/16"
