Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

french threaded pedals-suggestions

I am looking for new pedals that are french threaded I really don't like the ones on my bike now and I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions of places to get some new ones. I found a pair at harris cyclery but haven't had any luck finding any other places. Is there other places to get them or should I look into tapping the threads to 9/16 and just getting regular pedals?

you can get the cranks tapped.. that's what i would do.. just make sure that your LBS is competent, because it would suck to ruin a super nice set of stronglight track cranks or something like that...

I kinda figured that would be the answer I got. I usually do all of my work on my bike but I don't have the correct size tap and I can't afford to ruin my cranks right now plus Im not too sure about the competency of the LBS's here. Plus there is nothing really wrong with the setup I just don't like the pedals.
thanks
