Are bike pedals universal?

Are all bike pedals interchangeable?

Pedals are universal as long as the thread is the right size for the crank that you have on your bike. The 9/16 20 TPI size is pretty much standardised on adult bikes in the industry now, meaning there are just the two main threads as previously mentioned.

How do I know my bike pedal size?

Manufacturers have made it nice and easy for this one, and all you have to do is check the cranks on the bike. If your cranks are made up of three separate sections, two separate crank arms and the spindle that goes through the frame then your pedals will be size 9/16” x 20 tpi.

How do you tell if my pedals are 1 2 or 9 16?

If the cranks are THREE PIECES, meaning two crank arms bolted to a spindle, it will be 9/16 thread on the pedals. If the crank is ONE piece through a large bottom bracket housing, it’s 1/2 thread.

Are there different types of bike pedals?

Bike pedals at a glance:

The two most common types of pedals are clipless (or clip-in) and flat. Clipless pedals require cleats, which are attached to the shoe and snap into the pedal. There are various clip-in pedal systems, including Shimano’s SPD, SPD-SL, Speedway, and Crank Brothers.

What cleats are compatible with Look pedals?

Look pedals either use a Delta cleat, Keo Classic, or Keo 2 cleat. Now if you have an older set of Shimano pedals, they used to license the technology from Look, and those pedals used the Delta cleats.

Are clip in pedals universal?

When you purchase clipless/clip-in pedals, the cleats designed to be used with those pedals are included in the box. Clipless/clip-in pedal cleats are specific to the manufacturer; so, for example, Shimano cleats are not compatible with Look pedals.

What are the different pedal sizes?

When it comes to pedal sizes, there are two sizes: ½” and 9/16”. ½” pedals are only used on very basic bikes with a one piece crank. A one piece crank is just that, it’s one piece of steel that is bent/forged to run from one pedal, through the frame, to the other pedal.

What thread size are bike pedals?

Bicycle pedals are commonly a 9/16″ x 20 threads per inch. The inside diameter of the internal thread (the “nut”) must be smaller. Measured in millimeters, the OD of the pedal is typically 14.2mm. For cranks the internal thread is nominally 13mm.

What size wrench do I need to change bike pedals?

Use an 8mm hex wrench in this fitting to remove and secure the pedals. When turning the pedals, keep in mind the wrench is on the back side of the pedal. The pedal thread direction has not changed, but the appearance of the wrench turning “clockwise” or “counter-clockwise” will appear different.
