Troubleshooting pedal bearing issue?(1 post)

Troubleshooting pedal bearing issue?filtersweep
Jul 13, 2002 2:31 PM
I installed new pedals today, and my right pedal feels a bit off. I don't know if it is the bearings in the pedal, or if I damaged the BB when I removed the old pedal on that side. It was super tight, and I really had to crank (no pun) on the wrench to get it off (they were the original factory-installed pedals that I finally rid myself of, and the threads seemed quite dry). There seems to be a very slight "flat spot" that is like a pebble in a shoe after a while, if you know what I mean.

Or- and I've never experienced this before with other pedals, but do they sometimes take time to "break in," so to speak?
