If getting a bigger wrench doesn't work, things like penetrating oil (Liquid Wrench, Kroil, etc.) are worth a try, as is heat cycling. Apply an ice cube to the pedal axle and a steaming hot/wet rag to the aluminum crank. Then reverse. The expansion/contraction might break the metal bond. Also, while doing the big wrench thing, a sharp rap with a hammer on the wrench may be more effective than just applying pressure.SM-Rider said:Anyone have any quick ideas on how to remove pedals that are seriously stuck on the crank? I had my 8 mm allen slightly bending and still couldn't get the pedal loose. Right now I'm thinking LBS.
PB Blaster & Liq Wrench are basically very low viscosity oils + other hydrocarbon. I've had them splash on painted auto surfaces with no ill effect.SM-Rider said:Will the the chemical solutions affect CF? I have the pedals attached to an FSA SL-K light crank set.
