i have some cult plastic pedals and I can't get them off. I've tried a pedal wrench, dousing the contact point with wd40, putting my cranks in a vice. I'm going the right direction for each pedal but they won't even loosen. any ideas?

pour some boiling water on it or use a blow torch to heat it up lightly. when metal heats, it expands. this will hopefully cause the seized threads to separate from eachother. then use a big honkin cheater bar on the end of your pedals wrench for extra leverage.

Use penatrating oil it works much better than wd40 I've used it multiple times on my bike when I couldn't get it undone. You can also try using a wrench with a longer handle it will give you a lot more leverage
