    ^^ same here. You can take off those that you're not using. You'll need a set of short chain ring bolts but it can be done...

    What about cleaning the threads (with acetone) and re-inserting them with some red loctite? Once the loctite sets (give it 24 hours) you might be able to get the pedals off.

    Thread fix

    You can repair the pedals fairly easy. Since the threads came out with the pedal your only choice is to use a heli coil. what's done is the stripped hole is bored larger then new threads are cut and the heli coil inserted. The result new hardened threads. Remember you'd need L & R hand coils. Be sure the bore is done squarely so the new pedals will seat.

    Like the previous thread said, need to use a torque wrench from now on

    +1 on the helicoil repair. I wouldnt recomment it as a DIY though unless you have a good drillpress. Better bet is have a machine shop do it. Get that heli in there a little off axis and you will feel it in the pedal.

    yeah my lbs said they will do it not pricey either and its just the drive side. Is it worth it getting heli coiled or would a new crank set be better?

    Well depends if your looking for an excuse to get a new crank-set or not. Is it worth getting done, yes. Don't cost much and since you only need the drive side you only need a R hand thread coil. Shouldn't cost over $30 bucks at a machine shop......is the crank worth that?
