Is there something I can do to prevent my bike pedals from wearing out? And what causes the threads on a bike pedal to wear out?
I have a 4 year old Raleigh road bike with just regular open pedals. After 300 miles of riding, I had to replace the pedals because one of them broke off when the threads on the arm that the pedal screws into wore out.
The bike repairman offered to send the pedal out to be re-threaded but that would have taken a week and cost more than just replacing the pedals.
Any suggestions or recommendations?
