A while ago I picked up a Stronglight 93. It's a beauty. Well, it was marked as english threaded. I recently put it on a bike.
It's french threaded.
hence my ISO posts for french threaded pedals.
So, I think I can have the threads retapped to english since Frenchy threads are smaller.
It would exponentially open up my pedal options. Not to mention if I use this bike for a brevet (which I most likely will), I'll probably throw spd's on it. I'd like to be able to do that without changing the beautiful crank out.
In fact I don't even have a puller for this crank yet.
So, any opinions on re-tapping? I'm not sure how I feel about modifying an original piece like this, even though it's most definitely the practical answer.
What would you folks do? It's only original once or just retap it and be done with it?
