there's several different types and many different thicknesses of 'hard chrome'. It can vary quite a lot.

From memory the best I've paid was £15.


those ones don't come with cleats according to the description.

cheers


Not an issue for me as I've got several pairs of new cleats already and more fitted to the pairs of shoes I've got. Can see no cleats being an issue for some though.

Ask me how I know :(


A good rule is to think of that locknut like the BB cup BSA thread.

Obviously, if the tool is in a vice, it all gets mirrored: the Lh pedal locknut will undo by moving the pedal clockwise; the Rh pedal locknut wil undo by moving the pedal counter-clockwise
:idea:
It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best,
since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.
Thus you remember them as they actually are...

Yep all good advice,but a moment of seniority wipes the whole of that logic out :roll: :wink:

I do dearly love good advice that quite clearly comes from bad experience!

Yes, as mentioned in post #2 in this thread.

BTW the 'bad experience' I had was trying to sort it all out after someone else (someone else that should have known better.... :roll: ) had beggared it all up. Obviously they wound both sleeves in all the way ("it was quite difficult...") before realising that they had created a pair of pedals that couldn't be used unless you were sat the wrong way round on the bike..... :roll: :roll: ...

It turns out that the sleeves melt if you get them hot enough, and the damage can be rectified by buying new sleeves; they are available as spare parts.

cheers

At least I only made the mistake with one pedal :)

I did wonder about that but suspect whilst sleeves are listed as a spare,what's guessing they're £10 each and only available from Madison.
I did think I could use a sleeve from an old pair of pedals when they are wear out,but so far I haven't managed to wear any out yet,and knowing my luck if I do it'll be the wrong side :? .
Better to run the stripped sleeved pedal (which only has a leettle play in it) to destruction and buy a new pair,complete with cleats from the bank breaking sum of £20 :wink:

it isn't too bad.... mind you, they are about half that cost from some German retailers, so Madison are having their pound of flesh out of it alright...
