    Pedal Dust-cap resource

    I've lost one of the pedal dust-caps for my '86 Le Tour. The pedal says "SP-150."
    One of the local shops just shrugged when they saw my pedals, and the local co-op didn't have anything that fit. If anyone can tell me what they are and maybe point me in the right direction for somewhere to find a replacement set, I'd be grateful. I'm not worried about them being exactly the same. They just need to fit, and match (fit being the more important of the two).
    Thanks

    A picture of the pedals would be very helpful. Try www.loosescrews.com

    I have never been able to find any pedal dust caps anywhere. Fortunately, when I bought my most recent Capo, I just happened to have a 1960 Agrati dust cap that I had saved from my very first Capo after the frame broke. My general rule is never to scrap any bicycle or major component without salvaging all of its small bits, because they require only a modicum of storage space, and you never know when they will come in handy.

    I lost a pedal dust cap from my Specialized Allez Sport. The pedals and cap are a plastic composite. The cap slips in from the end. It does not screw on. I had a piece of 3/4" steel tubing and cut off not quite an inch. I brazed a piece of thin steel over the end and ground it to fit the tubing. I slipped it into the hole on the end of the pedal. I also tied it in with some small gauge wire criss-crossed over the end of the dust cap and through the pedal to keep it from working out. It is not elegant, but it works.
    Who am I?
    Where did I come from?
    Why am I here?
    Where am I going?

    Mine are (or the one that is left is) gray, but other than that you described it.
    I'll wait out a few more responses, and if nothing else comes up, I'll be off to ACE.
    Thanks!

    If it's of any help to you, those pedals were made by SR (Sakae-Ringyo). Best bet might be the junked parts bins of an old Mom-'n-Pop LBS.

    I don't think Santa Cruz HAS any more bike shops like that!

    The Bicycle Inn was a really great little shop, but you might try Family Cycling Center on 41st.
    Or The Spokesman downtown. The Bicycle Trip would be another one.

    I refuse to believe that you can't find the dust cap somewhere in Santa Cruz!

    I'm really surprised that no one mentioned one of the best online sources for C&V bikes: Velo Orange

    Looking at a couple pairs of SR pedals i have here i believe that these would work for you. If you want to wait i'll probably be ordering a few for myself soon, and i could let you know how they pan out.

    um- i have lost three caps for a pair of campy replica mks' - my lbs (I'm in portland, there's maybe 5-10 lbs' in walking distance) has'em in bulk last time I checked... someone let me know if the mks caps work... I could send one...

    Note" there is a tool for tightening these - I didn't know that three caps ago...

    (ps I'm drinking sailor jerrys rum and feel like this post almost makes no sense)

    Those look like they would totally work.
    I wonder when they'll be available.

    I might sound like a ******, but is "lbs" a local bike shop?

    Velo Orange is still out. You sending one would be pretty rad!

    I too have a pair of SR SP-150 pedals. The dustcap, as stated, is plastic. It appears that they get brittle with age. I know because I tried to remove one, and with the gentlest twist, it cracked.
    N-1 is my long-term goal

    Looks are deceiving. I have 2 caps here that look identicle. Both have serrated edged with a an allen key center. They're different sizes.

    Tragedy. I finally ordered some of these and they do not fit!
    Sigh... and I'd gotten my hopes up so high.

    For what it's worth... you ain't nuts!

    Here is a pair of SR pedals which I just dragged out of storage. This model is the SP 100 AL... which are copies of Campagnolo quill pedals with black alloy cages. -- Very nice quality and very smooth!

    As you already discovered, the odd thing about these pedals are indeed the alloy dust covers. The outer diameter of the threads on these are roughly 1 mm. smaller than Campagnolo (or MKS copies). These accept a 6 mm. Allen wrench [hex-key] in the recessed center hole, and the serrations on the outside may be only decorative - in any case they definitely will not match the notches of Campagnolo or MKS pedal tools, but the 6 mm. hex-key alternative is much better anyway.

    One clever feature, perhaps not necessary on these quill pedals, but good for symmetrical touring pedals, is the easy to distinguish notches on the left pedal axle between the wrench flats (near the crank threads). I always go nuts sorting through a box of old Lyotard touring pedals trying to separate the right and left pedals.

    I'm sorry man, I didn't mean to give you bad advice. If you'd like I'll buy them from you. I have a pair of Campy pedals with ruined caps anyway and I feel bad that you wasted your money on my suggestion.
    If wanting fair bike prices makes me a leftist I don't wanna be right.

    Well, don't feel bad, but if you need them, I'll definitely sell them to you. If you don't need them, I can keep them around as back-ups for some of my other pedals.
    Not a big deal.

    I want to join the party and say that I am also looking for a dust cap for an old set of SR pedals. I know the MKS caps don't fit because I just got one from my LBS-- and just as everyone else has said, they definitely don't fit.

    I found an old Sakae Ringyo catalog online that shows their line of pedals from the 80s. Sure enough, every single one has these oh-so-hard-to-get dust caps. http://equusbicycle.com/bike/sakae/catalog18/index.html

    If anyone has ANY luck... please help us.
