Trying to change from French (14mmx1.25) to virtually everyone else (9/16-20) on a Vintage Peugeot tandem. I've read you can just run the more standard taps through the cranks and all is good. (Or am I wrong?
I don't want to spend $35+ for the Park Tools tap set, and EVERYONE is out of stock on the cheaper Icetoolz sets.
Even hit up 3 bike shops on Sunday and they looked at me like I was crazy when I mentioned pedal taps. (That scares me...Only one shop even knew what I was talking about.)
Anyway - if anyone is in Houston or near Houston I can bring the two sets of cranks by and we can run the taps through in no time. I'll supply a 6 or 12 pack or reasonable amnount of cash for the time.
Or, if someone could direct me to a shop with the icetoolz set in stock I'd be happy to buy them too.
