Stripped pedal; new crankset needed?
Good morning, Bikeforums.
I recently purchased a Huffy 'Good Vibrations' Single-Speed bicycle from a retail-store called Alco.
It's my first bicycle; I intended to use it as transportation to work in the mornings, but I experienced a mechanical-issue as I was riding it.
The pedal collapsed when I was traveling down the road; I was in-shock, the bicycle being new afterall. I brought the bicycle to a friend, who claimed he would be able to repair the bicycle.
Well.. He used a hammer, in an attempt to force the pedal into the threads; thus stripping them. The attempt was a failure, and the threads were discovered to be stripped as a result.
I purchased another pedal, but the pedal wouldn't insert into the threads.
I has questions. :c
Do I need to purchase a new crankset?
How do I remove the current crankset? (There isn't any screws or bolts to remove. :c)
What size of a crankset will I need?
Is it possible to just purchase another 'arm'?
