    Most pedals use 1/8" balls.

    Sprint pedals, however, IIRC - and if Velobase is correct, require 5/32" balls.

    I'm pretty sure this is right, as I remember consulting velobase when rebuilding a set of these about 18 months back (and cross-referencing this info with what was in my pair already).
