Strengths:    Nice color. Cheap

Weaknesses:    I couldn't even use the thing! It wouldn't fit my 15mm pedals!!! It was cast a little too small!! I had to borrow a friend's wrench.

Bottom Line:   
If you were smart enough to look for reviews BEFORE buying,
be smart enough to stay away from this garbage. I am very
dumb and will have to see what Performance can do for me. :)

Strengths:    It is cheap. Performance's awesome customer service enables you to return it quickly.

Weaknesses:    It does not work. Rounded off the flats on one of my pedals (I know how to remove pedals). These were platforms I wasn't using any more, but it still made me mad.

The wrench is made poorly. The metal deforms when it is used even once if you have to use any force to get the pedal off.


Bottom Line:   
If I were to buy a pedal wrench again I would be looking at Park Tool's version. Nothing but good reviews there.

This wrench left me w/ a damaged pedal. It was also damaged in the removal process. Performance took it back and even reimbursed shipping, but they shouldn't sell this stuff to begin with.

Strengths:    If you throw it at an attacking dog, you can really piss it off.

Weaknesses:    Offset angle is a braindead design. Impossible to develop any levereage against the flat handle bacuase it isn't lined up with plane of rotation.

Bottom Line:   
This thing is useless. You'll want to return it the first time it slips off the wrench flats (which will probably happen the very first time you use it), but you won't be able to, because the metal will have deformed.

Date Reviewed: August 28, 2002

Strengths:    It works.

Weaknesses:    The angled head makes it difficult to remove both pedals. On one side you have tpo plac ethe wrench under the pedal, if you try to wrench from the top the angled handle puts your hand right on the chain stay. The angle seems like a good idea, but it is not.

Bottom Line:   
Get another wrench.
