Mongoose Ledge 2.1 pedal thread size

Measure the threads on the crank. Use or borow a pair of calipers. Measure with two threads as the outside edges to get proper diameter.

Assembly manual

To remove the crank (the arm the pedal is attached to), you'll need a special tool. I got mine at a bike shop. (Bike shops are our friends.) I use the Park Tools CWP-7. It's pretty much a big bolt with a smaller bolt going through it. You'll remove the cap covering the spindle bolt (if it hasn't fallen out already), remove the bolt that holds the crank are onto the spindle, then thread the "big bolt" part of the tool into the threads for the cap on the crank. You'll then screw the inside bolt into the big bolt, which will push the crank arm off of the spindle.

The bolt holding the crank position sensor sleeve is stripped

get the next size larger bolt. get a tap that matches the teaed size and re tap the hole for the new bolt. Or if the threads are not completly gone,you can try red thread locker and see what happens. if that fails, then go to top of post.

What is the size of the bolt on the pedal, the thread on the pedal is damaged and will not screw onto the bike what do i do

If you are good, you can file the threads on the pedal to remove the damage and even reduce the size of the first few threads just to get the threads to start into the hole. Once the first few threads start in, the others should follow.

What is the size of the thread of a standard bike pedal?

There are 2 standard sizes:

Standard one-piece cranks 1/2" x 20 tpi

Standard 3-piece cranks 9/16" x 20 tpi.

The Right Pedal (gear side) has a normal thread, the Left has a reverse thread.

Left pedal broke can i get replacement?

All depends on if you stripped the crank arm, you may have to replace your crank arm if you rode with a loose pedal. Pedals are sold in pairs, and there are 2 sizes, a one piece crank is 1/2" and 3 piece crank is 9/16", take your bike to the bike shop and they will tell you if you need a new crank arm or not. It will do no good to just replace your pedal if there is a bad crank arm thread, it will not hold.

I need to remove the pedals of a Mongoose downhill mountain bike

Hi Miranda

You need to purchase a pedal removal spanner(wrench). They are very thin so they can slot in between the pedal and the crank.

If this is not an option, find a 15mm spanner(wrench) and tap it onto the bit where the pedal meets the crank. Ive always found that you need a friend to sit on the bike, hold the opposite pedal at the low stroke while you undo the pedal.

**REMEMBER** pedals have the opposite to normal threads. To undo them, you need to turn them clockwise. Spray penetrating fluid onto the threads a day before you attempt to remove them. They are very difficult to remove.

Hope this helps.

My left pedal is broken because it's really worn inside the pedal and I need to replace my pedals.

There are two thread sizes for pedals, make sure you get the right ones. Take the old one with you to the store.

You'll need a crank/pedal wrench to take the pedal off. The gap is too smal to get a normal size wrench in there, but you might get lucky.

Use some penetrating fluid on the thread and leave it overnight before you do it, as they are notorious for getting stuck on. Have a friend stand on the other pedal to keep it still, and undo it.

Tighten up the new one, remember the threads are backwards to normal tightening. Happy riding - vote for me please :)

How can i take my pedals off

Since you did not indicate the the pedals were actually clips or special to your specific bike I can only assume they are standard pedals.

If you look where the pedal and crank arm meet you will see what looks like a metal pin. If you look closely you will notice this pin has two flats opposite each other. This is nothing more the a six sided bolt but with only two sides. Normally you would use a pedal wrench however a wrench of the appropriate size with a thin head will also work. Using a 2x4 about 4 feet long, place it against the pedal on the side opposite the side of the one your removing. Depending on whether you are loosening or tightening the pedal use the 2x4 as leverage against either the front or back side of the other pedal.

This will vary depending on the type of pedal you wish to remove. For instance some pedals use an allen head bolts that is threaded in from the inside of the crank arm.
Hope this helps.

I want to replace the main sprocket with a bigger

you need to pull the pedal off on the side that the crank is on the pedal will thread off like a bolt but the threads are reverse on the pedal once you have the pedal off you will have to unscrew the two nuts that hold the crank in the frame of the bike the inner nut is easiest to get off with a flathead screw driver once you have those two out you can pull the crank out of the frame and then you may want to put it in a vice because the crank will turn off the pedal unit but you usually have to pry up on the crank a little to get the alignment pin out of the crank enough to turn it
