Question about Huffy 26 in. Cranbrook Cruiser Bike
They are frozen and wont budge
Frozenbike pedals are not a problem if you follow a few simple steps. To begin with,the Right Pedal is standard, and the Left Pedal is Reverse Thread. If you areturning the wrong way, they will never come off. The trick is to use thecorrect wrench, skinny enough to slide in place without slop, and try toposition the wrench next to the Crank Arm in such a way that you can squeezethe Pedal Arm and Wrench together as if giving a very firm hand shake. Justsqueeze hard, and 90% of the time it will break free. If it doesn't, then sprayWD-40 or some other penetrating lubricant on both sides of the threads takingcare not to contaminate the grease inside the pedal bearings. You might have togive it a good soak, and bang the metal crank arm several times to make thelubricate work its way into the thread, sometimes leaving it for 24-hours canmake easy removal the next day. Remember, the Right Pedal is Right, and theLeft Pedal is Reverse, meaning, the Right Pedal tightens normally in theclockwise direction, and loosens in the counter-clockwise direction. The Rightpedal is from the Bike Riders perspective, when sitting on the bike, the Rightpedal is on the Right Side. An extension pipe can be slipped over the wrenchextending its length 2 or 3 feet, and will bust free just about anything frozentogether, however such a method risks damage, and you might end up needing toreplace the Crank Arm.
