Where can I find replaceable pedal pins?

Post by Joe Merril » Thu, 11 Jul 2002 07:51:57


One Muni ride on my new Kona Jacksh*t pedals, and I already lost a pin.  Not
sure if I stripped the thread or it just fell out.  Anybody know where I can
buy these online?  I searched for a while but found nothing.  None of the bike
shops in NYC seem to have them.  These are the pins that need an Allen wrench
and they***in from the outside.

The Kona pedals are great by the way.  Big improvement over the Odyssey
Twisted Pro.

Sounds like your Kona pedals use standard metric set screws.  Find a
good hardware store that carries metric hardware.  Most pedals that use
set screws use either M3 or M4 size.  If you can't find any that are
short enough then get ones that are too long and file them down.

To tighten the screws I use pliers.  Ignore the fact that they have a
socet head.  You can't get them tight enough using a small hex key.  Use
pliers and get them good and tight and they won't fall out on you.

Joe -- I have a set of Konas, not sure what model at this point, but
they came with extra pins.  I'm sure we can try them out at a Unatics
meeting, or I can throw a couple into an envelope and mail them to you.

Use the dealer locator at
www.konaworld.com/kw_index.cfm
and find the closest dealer if you want to replace with Kona parts.
If not take a pin out and bring it to your local hardware store.
How do you like the pedals, I was thinking of purchasing a pair.
:)

Plus, you can use lock-tite!

Thanks for all the useful advice.  Dave - I'll see what I can find at
the hardware store 1st.  If I can't find anything I'll let you know.

The pedals are a MAJOR improvement over the Twisted Pro's.  They have a
bigger surface area and the pins are very grabby.  I also just got 661
(Dually) boots (as many have recommended), and the combination is
amazing.  Now it feels like my leg is attached to the unicycle.  It does
take getting used to because to adjust, you cannot slide your foot - you
have to lift it clean off the pedal.  A decent muni pedal makes a big
difference.

I dont have Konas, but i do have pedals with set screws, and I can
get then very tight with the 2.5mm allen "L" wrench that I use, which
reminds me i sould check how tight they are after a couple weeks of
riding.
