CLASSIC CORNER: Pedals
Classic Corner is for pre-1970 parts and accessories.
Lyotard pedals were in the late 1950s and 1960s available with two lengths of pedal threads – short to suit steel cranks and long for aluminium cranks. In practice there is generally never a problem with running the short thread cranks in aluminium cranks as long as the crank threads are sound. Long threaded pedals in steel cranks will protrude beyond the pedal eye of the cranks. Some aluminium cranks eg early Campag and early TA need short threaded pedals in order to prevent the rear blanking pieces being pushed out.
All pedals listed have British threads unless stated otherwise.
CONDITION: We do not strip pedals to check on bearing condition, there are not enough hours in a day to do this but do try and assess whether they will need servicing. We do have small stocks of spare parts for some English made pedals. Old pedals often show some bearing wear but with fresh grease and ball bearings can in most cases be made to be reasonably smooth and reliable but obviously not suited for high mileage continuous use…
