So it is 90% my fault as to why I have to replace one of my crankarms. I have a 2009 Giant Rincon with a junky SR Suntour crank (http://www.srsuntour-cycling.com/dst...R172-PBIG.html).
I purchased some SPD's and installed them just fine. After a while I needed to put my flats back on. When trying to put them on I cross-threaded at the very start a few times, but kept backing and restarting. I have switched out pedals quite a few times since then and everytime I try to put my flats (stock flats I might add) back on it tries harder and harder to crossthread. I could tell the first bit of thread was turning into crap. The other side is not near as bad but still a turd.
Well fast forward.... completely stripped crank-arm.
I understand I probably shouldn't have switched pedals so often, but I had my reasoning. I needed flats to ride to school, etc. every day because SPD's tore up my normal-day shoes.
For money's sake I would like to just replace the one arm, but I am thinking about just doing the whole set. Any suggestions? If I find a ridiculous deal on decent parts I plan on moving them to my next bike someday, but I don't have much money to spend right now (upcoming wedding.)
Thanks for the help!
