Date Reviewed: August 23, 2008

Strengths:    It works the first few times I used it, swapped out a couple of pedals on my bike (Cannondale Road Warror 500) and my B-I-L bike (GT Avalanche 1.0).

Weaknesses:    Metal is soft or improperly heat treated, the last time I tried to use it, and the pedals were stuck, it slipped out and deformed the wrench contact area. I didn't like the offset on the head, seemed to get in the way for me.

Bottom Line:   
I figured it would be okay for someone who doesn't tinker with his bike; I was wrong. Skip this go for the Park (or Pedro's) instead. On the plus, Performance took it back and gave me credit no questions asked.

Two chilis cause it worked a few times.

Pedal wrench question?

Looking to buy a pedal wrench and I see that most are 15mm. I wanted to verify my pedal size prior to ordering a wrench, so I tried a 15mm open end wrench from my toolbox and it does not fit? Both of my bikes have Shimano pedals, PD-647 and wondering what pedal wrench will fit? ThanksRead More »

Eggbeaters with pedal wrench flats?

Does Crankbrothers or anyone (other than Ward Industries as they are out) make spindles that have the pedal wrench flats? Ti is preferrable but I will take anything right now. Ward's says he is out and won't make another batch unless I want 10 sets.Read More »

Crank Brothers Candy - what is up with no pedal wrench option?

Why do Crank Brothers Candys not have pedal wrench detents? I hate using a hex wrench for putting them on or off. Their 5050 offering is able to use a pedal wrench so I know they can do it if they wanted :)... Is there something I don't know that is bad about pedal wrenches? It takes me twic ... Read More »

Pedal wrench vs. cone wrench

Went to the LBS for a 9/16/15mm pedal wrench. Ended up being given a wrench made for hub nuts. Both are the same size. A wrench is a wrench if you ask me... Says not to use on pedals... why not? It can't be that it's too weak, they must be able to handle the same force... so why am I not supp ... Read More »
