It all depends upon your cranks. If they are 3 piece cranks, then they are 9/16" pedals, and if they are one piece cranks, then they are 1/2".

Most BMX bikes worth around $200 and up have 3 piece cranks. If you can't tell if your bike has 3 piece cranks, post up some pictures so we can help you.

most (I dare say ALL) Magnas have 1-piece cranks.
I'd be willing to bet you'll need 1/2" size pedals.

No need to dare.

That is, unless you count Steve Veltman's "Magna" race bike.

1/2" Pedals should work. Cheap $15 Wellgo's that are alum. should hold up good too.
