    crank arm stripped what now

    My race face evolve crankset has the pedal threads stripped on the drive side. Can I buy a rt side crank arm only (includes the chainring spider), or do i need to helicoil it.

    I would go Heli coil first. Much cheaper than buying a new crank arm.

    I had the same problem a few weeks ago. I took the arm into my lbs and they put a thread insert (helicoil) in for me, cost 11 bucks.

    would using the helicoil make the threaded connection weaker?
    every thread needs an uploaded image of one kind or another.

    It will actually make the connection stronger. A Boeing 747 comes from the factory with over 40,000 Heli-Coils installed as OEM equipment. It's the preferred method for installing a steel bolt in to an aluminum threaded hole.
