    Schwinn Threaded Pedals?

    I tried to transplant a set of pedals off a '73 Varsity (with one-piece-crank) on to a bike that takes standard threaded pedals...the size of the threaded pedal spindle was too small!

    Is there Standard, French and Schwinn OPC sizes?

    Standard = 9/16"
    French = 14mm
    1 piece crank = 1/2"

    thank you!

    can I swap spindles from 1/2" to 9/16"?

    **edit**

    I suppose thats a pretty silly question...because WHY? nobody would ever really want to.

    I dunno. You'll have to try it. And it's not silly, you could just happen to really like the smaller spindled pedals.

    with a pedal that came with all three sizes (something like the Atom or a Lyotard, maybe) I'm pretty sure it could be done...going from one brand to another an expecting the spindles to work...probably not, but you're surely not the first to try this. Actually a lot of BMX pedals come in both 1/2" and 9/16".
