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)

Just kick them with your heel of your foot. Thats my guess? I have never heard of pedals freezing up because of the cold. It could be that your pedals are old and they need replacing. Hope this helps.

Lube is your friend. Oil instead of grease when it is really cold.

Amazingly the Nashbar clipless pedals I am using have soldiered through the harshest weather. Says something for sealed bearings.

Salt has done some serious damage to my pedal bearings the last few weeks. Two sets of pedals too.

C'est la vie.
