Cheap price, not cheap quality
on 17 September 2012
Another useful addition to the DIY kit of bike maintenance. Don't be fooled by the price, this is a seriously good tool, (ok the spanner is a bit naff but still useable) that will get your pedals off in a jiffy.
Rule 1. Grease the threads well before first use. Always do this with any threaded tool as it will reduce friction and wear on the threads.
So far I have used this six times (with a proper spanner) and there is no thread damage. What I really like about this particular tool is that one end has a socket to undo the nut/bolt on the spindle - reverse it and it becomes the puller - two tools in one - bonus! The only slight down side is that there is no 'bearing' on the spindle end, so a really tight pedal might cause some damage there. I just slipped a greased-up 5p coin in between the shaft and the puller on a mega-tight pedal and bingo- no damage.
