Crank bros are really good, been using it for years on my mountain bike and classic roadies. Try them out.

The standard pedal on mtn bikes is SPD. There is a wide range available along with matching cleats and shoes.

There are so many types of pedals. I recommend that you'll get a pair that you know and you are comfortable with. Or you can also check for reviews on pedals and take the ones with the highest rate. However, you should remember that what's fit some people will not necessarily fit you...

    It also depends on what shoes you prefer and whether you want to be clipped in.See heep://sheldonbrown.com/shoe-pedal.html.

Have a broken pedal where can i get one?


Amazon is as good as anywhere, or you can visit a local cycle shop. Buy a pair. When you are fitting them, note that one side is left hand thread and the other side is right hand thread!

I hear a slight rubbing/grinding sound coming from rear brake pedaling the bike. What could it be and how do I fix it?


Most likely the break pad is rubbing intermittently as it rolls because the rim is bent. If its a OEM spoke rim then it wont take many curb jumps to bendit. Most mountain bikes from a walmart or academy wont be anything more than the basic for streets. If you are going off road on real mountain biking trails then you would be better off getting a stronger rim but these can be pricey. Another cause can be that the tensioner springs near the break pads need to be adjusted so you can pull the pad away from the rim. Problem is that it will take some of the stopping power away. Not recommended. Most high end mountain bikes have an actual rotor type disc break like a motor cycle that's on the inner rim so that way even if the rim gets a little bent or wet, the performance of the breaks is still up to par. To check if your rims bent, turn the bike upside down and set it so you can spin the back wheel really fast with the pedals. Then look at the tired from directly behind it. If its bent, you will see the wobble.

They stole my bikes pedals and I want to know what size they are to buy them?


Being a mtn bike it probably had flat pedals or lock-in SPD. Either way, pedals dont come in sizes, the shoes do. A pair of pedals will fit ANY bike, just select the type you want. Just be careful when screwing on, there is a LEFT PEDAL and a RIGHT PEDAL. They screw on in oppposite directions.!

I need to replace the right pedal on a Mongoose GMX ladies bicycle which has been chewed off by a dog. I need to buy the pedal and also would like to get an owners/instruction manual as the used bike was...


I tried to find the user manual online but I can get one, I would suggest to visit your manufacturer's website for you to get one.

For replacing a pedal, you just need some tools like open grinch depending on the size of your pedal.

Thanks.

Dyno mountain bike with a braking noise


If it is when you pedal, check the bottom bracket (where the cranks are attached) The bearings might need changing which would cause the noise.

Do the handlebars rock back and forward, if so, check and tightent the headset, check the bearings inside if they are dry or broken, replace and re-grease.

Pedals move freely


If the pedal is moving too free,but the bike are still moiving forward, it simply mean you are using to low a gear .

Try changing to a high enough gear to satisfy your required tension. Be advised that,
You will also increase your speed,and decrease your hill climbing in the process though.

How do you change gears


To change the front gear (probably 3 selections) use the left lever. To change the rear cassette, use the right one. To shift smoothly, slow your pedalling to switch, and don't change gears when you are pedalling hard, especially up hill. Gears hate that :)

I HAVE A MGX MOUNTAIN BIKE. WERE THE PEDAL ARE


im certain that model has a 3 piece crank set up. the inner crank bearing jam nut has loosened up or the bearings themselves have gone bad.first check to see if its tight, if it is then it will require a replacement set of bearing that are a pretty standard size to all bikes and can be purchased at nearly every bike shop.
