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)

MKS Stream Question

Anyone know if this pedal can be tightened with an allen wrench? Lots of pedals have this option at the back of the "axle."

Or is this a "pedal wrench only" pedal?


Thanks,

B

My right one can be tightened with an allen wrench but not my left one. My wife's are the same way.

PROTIP: you don't need a special pedal wrench, any old 15 mm open box end wrench
