Repairing a pedal ?

You have a few options, with varying difficulty and cost;

  1. If just the thread on the pedal spindle is stripped, buy a new spindle and
    rebuild the pedal.

  2. If the thread in the crank is stripped, which is more likely - either buy a
    new crank, or take the crank to a good bike shop. They can drill it out
    oversize, ream it and re-tap it to take a threaded insert which fits the
    original pedal threads. This can get expensive, and you may find it cheaper
    to buy a new crank.
