Why are my pedals not in the correct position? one is up the other is pointed forward. they should be 1 up and 1 down. Huffy Rock Creek Shimano

  • The pedals? Or the crank arms? A photo might show the problem better than words.

Because they are installed wrong. You can remove one crank using crank puller and install it in correct position, or take it back to shop.

  • And if the pedals were right at one time but are no longer then likely one of the crank arms is loose. Commented Apr 23, 2016 at 18:54

    (But I note that this is a BSO that might be sold at Walmart or some such, and the folks who prep bikes at such stores are often incompetent. So getting a bike with the pedals installed wrong would not be incredibly unlikely.) Commented Apr 23, 2016 at 18:56
