I think he means the spindle size...

If you have ONE piece cranks, you have a 1/2 inch spindle (smaller) on your pedals.

If you have THREE piece cranks, then they accept only 9/16 inch (larger) spindles.

Do you mean to ask what size wrench you need? Most use a 15mm today.

Cheers

why wouldnt you just get metric wrenches, you'll save money buying two setys rather than having to replace all your stripped bolts. The metric system is better anyway.

well I live on a farm and all our wrenches and other tools are in our shop, and since our tractors and other equipment use normal wrenches, thats all we got, plus im a little down on money to buy a whole new set
