so one pedal is seized to my crank arm, and the crank arm is seized to the spindle. ive heard to use wd40, that didnt work, and i also heard to use a torch to heat it up on the threads and that should loosen it up, that didnt work either. im stuck and i need this shit off. any suggestions? my wrenches are starting so bend and dent a bit from too much stress and the pedal not even budging.

did u do it right way? not saying that you are a retard but lots of ppl make that mistake. If u got like a garage or a tire shop near your area go there and they have like 1m spanners and it should undo the pedal because u get more leverage on the pedal

ive tried more leverage too, i put the wrench in a long pipe, and thats when my wrench started to bend and came right off the pedal without a budge.

wont work either way. theyre hollowbites and it looks like the pedal threads on the crank are spinning with the pedal when i try now

Did you grease up the threads when you put them on?

hahaa ive been riding them for a couple of years now. really strong cranks imo, but i know theres problems with the pedal bosses sometimes which is most likely my problem. im working on getting new ones, thats why i need the pedal off. hopefully ill get new ones this weekend!

That's possibly your problem then. Pedals sometimes don't want to come off when they're greased up loads, and will barely ever come off if the threads weren't greased.

contact primo, they should send u new pedal inserts and then you can get like molegrips or something to get the inserts of your pedal axle
