One of these days, I will hopefully succeed in removing my bike's platform pedals which are seemingly STUCK ON WITH CONCRETE; then I can install some with toe clips and also try out PowerGrips and get on with my cycling.
Yes I know you bend the wrench down towards the back. Believe me, I have read everything there is to read about pedal removal. I have tried one pedal wrench, pretty useless, and have put in an order for a bigger pedal wrench.
* tapping the crankarms
* using WD-40, though how you really are supposed to get it IN THERE, is a bit of a mystery.
* pouring boiling water over it
* heating for 10 mins with a candle held 1/2 inch away.
* pushing yet harder on the pedal wrench. I think they were originally put on with CRAZY GLUE. I practically have broken my wrists trying to get any semblance of something turning.
Next project is to heat for 20 or so mins with the candle, and try the big-ass pedal wrench when it arrives.
