Removing pedals

1656 Views 15 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  desmond88
I stupidly disassembled my bike (to ship the frame for repair) without removing the pedals now I'm having a hard time removing them. Any tips for removing the pedals with the cranks off the bike or is it just brute strength cause my arms sure are sore trying to get them off.

Shift chain to big ring up front so if you slip and slam your hand you don't get teeth marks.

Pedals tighten towards the front and loosen towards the back.

Use a 10 inch long wrench or as long as possible and use the crank arm for leverage. Grip both in one hand and squeeze. This should usually break the pedals free.
