How to remove the pedals from the peloton?
To remove the pedals what you all need is patience and a wrench of 15 mm. Having these things will help you to remove the pedals.
So, without any further details, let’s deep dive to remove the pedals.
Set the resistance to zero
Do you know why we have resistance knobs in the peloton?
Mainly to apply emergency brakes, right?
Now, while working with the pedals, it’s very important to ensure that your peloton doesn’t move. It’s important to make it stick at one position.
So, what you have to do is set the resistance to zero and the wheel will be stuck at one position.
It will not rotate even if you try to rotate.
This zero resistance will help you to work properly with upcoming next steps.
Remove the right pedal of peloton
Now, you have your wrench, right?
Insert that wrench at the axle of the pedal and start the removal process.
Don’t forget that you have to turn the wrench counterclockwise, otherwise it’ll tighten the axle and you won’t be able to remove the pedal.
So, turn the wrench counterclockwise to loosen the pedal.
If you have been using this peloton for a long time, you’ll have to apply some extra pressure at the axle.
Once you feel that the axle is loose enough that you can use your hand, start removing the pedal by using your hand.
Remove the left the pedal
Keep in mind that removing the left pedal is completely a reverse process of removing a right pedal.
Yeah, you heard absolutely correctly, in a reverse process!
So, fix the wrench at the axle of the left pedal and start rotating clockwise.
In the left pedal, clockwise will loosen your pedal.
Similarly, like the right pedal, start applying some extra pressure to remove the pedal bit faster.
Once, you feel it’s loose enough to use your hand, then remove the pedal by using your hand.
