Will these pedals work on a stock Peugeot PSN-10 (SV980)?

Amazon.com : MKS Sylvan Touring Pedal Double Sided : Bike Pedals : Sports & Outdoors

Noob when it comes to pedal threads on vintage french bikes. Not really interested in the ones that came with the bike I just bought (Christophe pedals with straps)... they look like this: http://thumbs3.ebaystatic.com/d/l225...cJ95_5Ik5g.jpg

Actually I just don't like straps so maybe I can just take those off?

I assume your bike is the PSVN with tubing of Super Vitus 980, if so it is from the early 1980s and the pedal threads should be standard (ISO, English) rather than French. At least, my 1982 PSVN has standard threads. So yes I believe those pedals will work.

It is easy to cross-thread pedals when installing them, so clean the threads, apply a little oil, and get the pedal threaded in a couple turns using just finger force, then visually verify they are straight, before using the pedal wrench. Remember the non-drive side pedal is reverse thread.

You could remove the straps and clips from your existing pedals and see how you like that. Or, try using the straps and clips. Even when left loose, toe clips help position your foot on the pedal and prevent slipping off.

I don't have pictures just yet but from what I'm seeing it looks like it's mid-80's. Would the idea still apply or did they switch around that time? (in which case I'll do more research when I get home to the bike).

Fairly certain it's this exact model: http://nsa22.casimages.com/img/2012/...1201635958.jpg

Those straps should come off. Paint job is an 84 or 85, so no problema with threads. Just a wonky quill style seat post.

Very nice bike. Pedals with standard (ISO, English) threads should work.

Fantastic, cheers everyone for your help. I'll take off the toe straps and give it a whirl before committing to new pedals.

randomguyy: Enjoy your new Peugeot, and please post some pictues when you get it.

I like the Maillard CX-650 aero pedals on my PSN-10. Give the clips/straps a try before you replace them. I agree with jyl that even loose they provide some benefit in keeping your feet on the pedals. And keep in mind that they are one-sided... if you remove the straps and clips you will still need to flip with your toe if the wrong side is up to be comfortable.

Good advice to proceed carefully if you do swap them. I'd be quite unhappy with myself if I messed up the threads on my original Campagnolo Triomphe cranks.

Check if there is a handedness stamping on the arms or previous pedals. If they say "R" or "L" they are English. If they say "D" or "G" they are most certainly French.

it's really hard, sometimes comically so, to get a foot on one-sided pedals without the clip/strap in place. it's dangerous to boot. all you need is one big bump you don't see (and prepare for) to throw a foot off ... and then your balance follows. clips/straps take a good solid week to get used to. thereafter, you will feel naked without them.

It takes less than a week to learn to get a foot on one sided pedals. I have them on 2 bikes and it is not a problem. I used clips and straps for years when I was young. I don't think I will be going back.

MKS Sylvan Touring are some of my favorite pedals. Try them without the straps.
