I wouldn't say I'm a complete noobie but I still have a lot to learn. Here's my issue..... on Sat. I went for a ride and about 3 miles in I noticed my right pedal was loose. When I stopped I found out it had actually stripped out the crank. Basically, after I unclipped I actually pulled my pedal straight out of the crank with the threads from the crank still wrapped around my pedal. I know I did not cross-thread the pedals because I put them on by hand and only used a wrench at the very end. My bike is an '09 Gary Fisher Wahoo disc with the stock crank. According to their website its a Shimano Acera FC-M341-S. I guess I have a few questions:
1. Has anyone else ever had anything like this happen?
2. Should I try contacting Shimano, could it be defective?
3. Can I buy a replacement arm or should I just upgrade the crank all together?
If I should just upgrade, what are your recomendations? I ride almost exclusively single track in Michigan. I count my self lucky if I can get out more than once a week. So I don't want/need/can afford a top of the line crank. Thanks for any advice you can give.
