Yes, you need a crank removal tool. I'd recommend the Park CCP-2 or the CWP-7, both described and linked here in these directions:

How do I fix a bike pedal that fell off and is stipped?

If the pedal post is stripped get a new pedal. If the crank side of it is stripped you can just replace the crank and put new pedals on it.

I have an old 12 speed racing bike with the shifters on the frame.i wish to either have thumb shifters on the handle bars or end bar shifters but i cant find either,any suggestions please

You haven't looked hard enough. eBay has everything. Unless you have a Campi drivetrain, go with Shimano or Suntour if you can find them.

But they're 'spensive.

I recently acquired an old '84 Cannondale road bike (before they had model numbers) that had all original Suntour 2x6 with downtube shifters on it. Now it's a full Campi-Ergo-equipped 2x9 with FSA compact carbon crank, aero-bar mountain climbing road rocket.

I can not get the peddle off the crank. peddle part number fc-m500 crank set shimano sg

You have to have a pedal wrench and they pedals have a right thread right side and a left thread the left side. The right side is the chain side, to tighten either one, you put the bike in front of you and turn the pedal wrench towards you to tighten, to loosen turn the wrench to the rear. This is very important, do it wrong and you strip your crank arms. Pedals are marked R for right side, L for left side. It is important to know this information. Most manuals do not tell you.

hi anbudharin; welcome to the forum!
yamaha RX100 bike is excellent
1) no maintenace 2) engine power and pickup awesome 3)best suited daily ride 4)especialy its sounds rocking in the city
If anyone planning to buy used Yamaha Rx100, Just go for it by closing your eyes. If you could spend few hundreds initialy you can renew ur bike as like new one which you cant get it from any other bike

Keep track of the 2T oil regularly, if you ride a bike without oil, performance of the engine may go down. I drove this bike form bangalore to hubli once in a three month and I love to ride this bike on such a long drive
if u want seconds pls gothrough this classifides

I can't remove the pedals - I want to remove these

Be advised the left pedal is left-threaded. Get yourself a nice Park brand pedal wrench.

What fixing nut?
