This came up recently in another thread: http://forums.bikeride.com/thread-4157.html

The thread is in theory repairable, but likely to cost as much as a new crankset and if repaired, I wouldn't think it would be as strong as it was originally.

I don't know much about BMX bikes or the Aerozine brand so I can't really recommend a suitable replacement.

Is this what you have:

If yes; very pricey, and probably cheaper to fix. See:

If no; take a look at crank sets on Amazon.

In the future; ALWAYS inspect your pedals and crank arms before you get on your bike to make sure that they are tight - NEVER ride with them loose; and you'll never have to repair or replace them.
