How to install bicycle pedals
Bicycle pedal installation preparation tools: Allen wrench or adjustable-end wrench, lubricating grease, plastic gloves.
Bicycle pedal installation steps:
1. Before installing the pedals, be sure to distinguish between the driving side and the non-driving side. “L” means the non-driving side (left side) and “R” means the driving side (right side). Observe carefully that the thread directions of “L” and “R” are not the same. Pay attention to distinguish the left and right pedals.
2. Before installing the pedal, apply a proper amount of grease to the thread of the pedal. The grease can effectively prevent abnormal noise from being engaged between the thread and the crank.
3. First install the drive side (right side) pedal. Tighten the pedal in a clockwise direction by hand to ensure that the thread of the pedal and the crank are in the correct position, and then use a tool to twist it to the specified force.
4. The steps for installing the non-driving side (left side) pedal are the same as those on the right side. First, tighten the pedal counterclockwise by hand, and then tighten it with a tool to ensure the tightening force and prevent the pedal from loosening and causing danger.
What do bicycle pedals l and R stand for
Represents the meaning of left and right, the first letter of “Left” and “right”, marked with “L” is the pedal on the left, and marked with “R” is the pedal on the right.
The pedal components are assembled on the left and right cranks of the central axis components. It is a device that converts the horizontal force into rotational force. When the bicycle is riding, the pedal force is first transmitted to the pedal components, and then the pedal shaft rotates the cranks and the cranks. , The middle axle, the chain flywheel, the rear wheel rotates, so that the bicycle can move forward. Therefore, whether the structure and specifications of the pedal components are appropriate will directly affect whether the rider’s foot position is appropriate and whether the bicycle can be driven smoothly.
