no. happened to me and just said buy new cranks. so heres what you do. take your whole crank off, and soak it in a bowl of wd40 for like an hour take it out, put it back on ur bike, then stand it up right annd put the pedal closest to the ground and jump on the crescent wrench. this should loosen it and then you can easily muscle it off and then buy some new pedals and some anti seize lubricunt!!!!!

probably. if not just put a pipe on your wrench to get more torque and pull down hard. make sure you're not twisting the wrong way. i dont remember which one is reverse threaded but one of em is! haha

heat it with a blow torch. Its a little trick called thermal expansion. I had the same problem and broke the wrench before i could get the pedal off. Then i heated it up and it came off smooth as butter.

Never mind Yup you know what, I am a retarded pussy who goes on BMX-Forum that's touching myself and should have gotten a Kink Liberty or sanded down my own stem or bars, but I'm not sure which one because I am a noob.

Now you know me.

Depends on the shop, and who is working. Some will, some won't.

Are you turning it clockwise when removing it? The left pedal is reverse threaded, meaning lefty tighty, righty loosey.


Spray it with some penetrant (WD might work) then if paint doesn't matter, have your dad help you by heating it up some with a torch. Then carefully try to break it loose.
