    removing studs on sun ringle zuzu pedals

    Anyone have these pedals, and know how to remove the studs?
    8 studs can be easily removed with a phillips screw driver, but there are 6 more per side that I have no clue how to remove. Any ideas?

    You could maybe try to use a dremel like tool to shave 2 sides to make a form that can be twisted by some pliers. You could also probably cut a slit in the middle and use a thinner flat head screwdriver. Probably wouldn't want to use them again though.

    Those six pins are press-fit into the pedal body. If there is enough left to get a purchase on them, you can probably twist them out with a pair of Vise Grips. Still checking, though, to see if you can get replacements for those or just the philips-head ones.

    Edit: I haven't found a set of pins yet but most descriptions say there are 14 replaceable pins per side - - indicating that the press-fit ones are part of a pin kit.

    I got them because I thought I could remove all the pins, but it looks like those 6 are hard to remove, I took some pliers trying to pry them out, but all it did was put some groves in the pins.

    Pliers won't cut it with pressed in; it will take Vise Grips at least. You can dress a couple flats on each pin with a flat file and it may help. If you don't want to go through that again, tap out those holes with a bottoming tap and replace them with set screws
