All pedals shown on this page use standard 9/16 x 20 threading. They fit virtually all bikes that have 3-piece or two-piece cranks.

If your bike uses old American-style one-piece cranks, you need the 1/2" x 20 thread size.
Those are listed on our American One Piece Crank page

Some older French bikes used the 14 x 1.25 mm size.
Pedals in that size are extinct, but you can tap the cranks out to fit standard 9/16 x 20 pedals.


Note: All pedals shown on this page are standard 9/16" threading.
They fit adult bicycles with three-piece-cranks

If your bike has one-piece cranks that need 1/2" pedals, either use the Pedal Thread Adaptors shown below, or check our page of Parts for Bikes With One-Piece-Cranks


9/16" to 1/2" Pedal Thread Adaptors buy button

These adaptor bushings (made by the "Kneesaver" people) have a male 1/2"-20 thread to fit into your one-piece crank, and a standard 9/16"-20 female thread that will let you install standard 9/16" pedals, even modern clipless pedals.

These install with a 15mm pedal wrench.

"Kneesaver" Pedal Spacers buy button

These are similar to the adaptors above, except they have standard 9/16"-20 threading on both ends. Some riders with unusual leg structure benefit from a wider pedal tread ("Q factor") and these spacers provide that. Available in 25mm and 30mm widths.

They feature a "rat trap" type cage that is narrow, like the Sylvan Track, for better clearance when cornering.

MKS 9/16" Sylvan Track Pedals buy button

MKS pedals

This is a knock-off of the classic Campagnolo track pedal. Aluminum body, CrMo spindle. These are very nice, with excellent road clearance. (Track pedals are a minimalist variation on traditional clip-and-strap type pedals, with a cutaway outer portion for better clearance.)

Bearings can be serviced/adjusted in the traditional manner.

Width from arm = 89 mm Weight = 340 grams/pair.

Pedals for Folding/Travel Bikes

MKS AR-2 EZY Quick Release Road Pedals buy button

MKS pedals

Quick Release Version of the AR-2 Road Pedal. Thes have a nifty quick release fitting that works just like a high-pressure compressed-air coupler. When the pedal is removed, the coupler only protrudes 19 mm from the side of the crank. Includes drawstring carrying bag.

(There's some confusion about the model name of these. Supposed to be "AR-2" but the type face used on the pedals makes it unclear whether the first letter is an "A" or an "R".)

Width from arm = 105 mm Weight = 340 grams/pair.
This pedal also available in a Conventional Version

MKS Lambda EZY Superior buy button

MKS pedals

Quick Release Version of the "Grip King" Platform Pedal.

Note: The "EZY Superior" QR system is not compatible with the MKS EZY pedals.

A great upgrade for folder/commuters wearing soft soled shoes.

Width from heel to toe = 118mm Weight = 438 grams/pair.
This pedal also available in a Conventional Version
