9/16" It's easy to remember, since just about the ONLY cranks that take 1/2" pedals are low end children's bikes, and those with One piece steel cranks that look like a Z threaded through the frame.

The clips mount with nutted bolts to the pedals, which need to be able to take toe clips. They should have two holes in the pedal body. Just Google "install toe clips"

Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!

consider using Power Grips, they work great, easy to install, easy to use.
