Nonsense. The new pedals should fit right in. Maybe you need to chase the threads on the crank, but probably things would sort out using the standard technique. Clean the threads in the crank, grease pedal threads and crank arm threads, start the pedals with light wrench force. Thread in until the force gets too high, back out, re-clean, re-grease, repeat. You do recognize the difference between left and right pedal threads, right?rlim said:based on that link, I will have to tap my crank in order to accommodate the pedal.
