All you need is a spanner. Undo pedals and screw them back in right position. One of the pedals may have left thread, so, they will screw in only in desired side.

You could most likely do either. Not sure what tool would be required but I'm sure you could match the tool with the socket. Once the pedals are off just make sure the reflective tape is in the proper location and you should be set.

Mount delivered to local Post Office Nov 28. I have not received it.

First thing open the box and test the TV to see if it works then contact retailer who you ordered the mount from as the contract for purchase and delivery is with them who YOU ordered it from and tell them to find it and get it delivered or replaced
Also it is not fit for purpose without the mount . ifif you get no joy from them ie the run around like it is the supplier you need to contact get on the phone to your local trading standards office or the CAB as some counties have transferred the readings standards to them

you will need to obtain a spanner that firs the pedal nut which is sited between the pedal cage and the crank. That sextion should be machined and usually takes a spanner about nine sixteenths or five eights of an inch
You may to apply some force . Also note that the pedals may fit in the cranks on threads that go in different directions... the left hand crank may undo clockwise

How do I assemble a Stowabike City Compact Folding Bike

"Before riding the Stowabike for the first time you have to assemble the the handlebars, front wheel, pedals and the back rack. All the instructions how to exactly put everything together will be delivered with the Stowabike." See more assembly info in the link below, where the above text originated.
Stowabike 20 City Bike Compact Folding Bike
What's most important is the adjustment done once the bike is put together. For safety and proper operation the brakes and derailleurs (shift system) need to be properly adjusted, and sometimes the hub bearings as well. You may want to have a bike shop assemble it, or see if your community has a bike co-op, where you can use their tools and get help.

Rear axle replace

screw 1 of the cone pieces(that fit bearings)tapered section towards centre of axle(about 3/4 inch), then slip 1 bearing case on axle from other end with bearing side facing centre. Then insert axle into hub and put bearing on other end(bearings facing middle)then cone.
**NOTE** Put small amount of bearing grease inside hub for bearings. Doesn't have to be bicycle grease- I use auto grease as you get 10times as much for same price.
Then adjust cones by hand untill there isn't any slack and axle centered.Then screw on thin nut(both ends), it acts as lock nut for cones.To tighten correctly you need a skinny spanner to hold cone while you tighten the skinny nut. Spanners from bike shop only cost about $2. Can adjust without a narrow head spanner by leaving a bit of slack when doing up cones and hopefully lock effect between cone/nut grabs before cones are over tight(a bit of messing around without a narrow spanner).
There shouldn't be any slack between axle/cones and wheel, wheel should spin freely.
Put wheel on bike then a washer(if you have any)outside frame, then larger wheel nuts.
Hopefully all your pieces have been used. HAPPY RIDING

My Suntour Folding, non-slip pedal has a bad bearing. Where can I buy a new pedal?

There are search engines that will find the answers so much faster than flushing them through Fixya.

Pedals are sold in pairs - any bike shop, eBay. Maybe look on a search engine for how to service the pedal instead of replacing it.

For example...

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.

Pd -m424 cant get pedals off bike? do i need to use allen key as well as spanner

No, you do not need to use both. In fact, you should never use a spanner wrench to remove your pedals or anything requiring large amounts of torque. For removing your pedals you should be using an pedal wrench or if the pedals are not very tight the allen wrench. A basic pedal wrench like the Park PW-5 is inexpensive and does a great job. Also remember that the non-drive side(left) is reverse threads, meaning both sides come off by unthreading to the rear of the bike.

Hope this helps. Thank you
