Bought some new pedals last night. When I went to take the old pedals off they were stuck! My bike is about three years old and the pedals have never been off. Tried spraying them with WD-40 over night but still no movement. Any ideas? Thanks.
for future reference wd40 is useless as a penetrating oil good old triflow would have worked better or kroil if you can get your hands on it. and as mudpie said grease the threads on the new pedals. never be afraid of grease!

+1 on the anti-seize; I use Tef-Gel to avoid corrosion of dissimilar metals (steel pedal and aluminum crank arm.) I also fit stainless pedal washers and put
Tef-Gel on them as well to make removal easier and avoid galling the pedals.
