Thread busted on right pedal crank
(04-04-2011, 02:25 PM)zippy Wrote:  what I'm saying is that putting a pedal on could be much easier and you should not be able to destroy your crank in the process. All I did was try to screw on a pedal! I tried many times to screw it on proper straight but when all you have is a spanner theres not much you can do. So you put it on best you can like I did. I wasn't aware that it would be so fickle that it would destroy the thread within a day.

Even I could come up with a more foolproof connection device. In my experience threads are stupid things to have at high impact points because they're obviously vulnerable.

Come on. you tried to put the pedal on, met resistance and tightened the pedal anyway. Most home mechanics including myself have done that though mine is in the cloudy distant past. The problem with replacing cranks is that they all use one or two special tools. JB Weld is highly unlikely to work and failure COULD be serious to your body.
