At a Glance:
- To remove the pedals from the crank arms, use a pedal wrench or a hex key to turn them. Rotating the right pedals counter-clockwise loosens them, whereas turning the left pedals clockwise loosens them.
- Apply bike lubricant to the new pedals and screw them in at a 90-degree angle to ensure a tight fit.
- Screw in each pedal until it is completely installed and snug
- Then get on the road.

Do I need a special tool to change bike pedals?
Various tools are required. A 15mm open-ended wrench (also known as a pedal spanner), a 6mm Allen key, or an 8mm Allen key, depending on the pedals you’re using, will be required. Whatever the needed tool, having a long-handled version of it will provide more leverage for increased security and simpler removal of the tool.
How do you take pedals off a bike without a wrench?
Instructions on how to remove bicycle pedals without the use of an allen wrench
- Step 1: Set the Bicycle in the Proper Position.
- 2. Insert the Spanner in the appropriate location.
- The third step is to rotate the Spanner in an anti-clockwise direction.
- Step 4: Release the Pedal from the Floor.
- Step 5: Rotate the Bicycle 180 degrees counter-clockwise.

How do you remove look pedals?
For leverage, place your free hand on the crank arm opposite the pedal and keep it there. To loosen the pedal, turn the 8mm hex key in the opposite direction of its rotation. Rotate the key counterclockwise to engage the right-side drive-side pedals. For left-side pedals that are not on the driving side, spin the key clockwise.
What can I use if I don’t have a pedal wrench?
Determine the size of your pedals. Because you don’t have a pedal wrench, a conventional 15 mm open-end wrench will usually suffice, and it will work just as well.
What size wrench do I need to change bike pedals?
Almost all current pedals have flats that accept a 15mm spanner, while many pedal spanners also feature a 9/16-inch jaw for older pedals, which is also common. If you are tempted to use narrow wheel cone bearing spanners, resist the temptation. They will deform and become useless.
Are bicycle pedal threads universal?
To put it simply, bike pedals are not universally applicable. Not just in terms of appearance or for the numerous reasons they serve in various cycling sports, but also inwardly. Pedals for bicycles are typically available in two sizes: 9/16″ and 12″. The 9/16″ pedal is the most common variety of pedals, and it includes practically all subtypes and configurations.
Can you take pedals off a bike to make it a balance bike?
To convert a standard pedal bike to a balance bike, remove the cranks, pedals, and chain and replace them with the balance bike’s components. Pedal bikes, on the other hand, are often taller than their balancing bike counterparts since they require additional ground clearance in order for the pedals not to contact the ground when riding.
Can you remove pedals from WOOM 2?
By delaying the installation of the pedals, your kid will have more time to become used to their new bike frame while also continuing to learn about balancing and braking. Once they’re completely ready to ride on their own, you may attach the pedals using the pedal wrench provided and watch them take off!
