Of course. I've yet to come across a pair of 3 hole road shoe you can walk with...

I've seen a rider with these, and I'll probably check them out at the LBS. There's a Sport version with a stiffer sole.

I've bought some shimano mtb pedals 4 days ago. And I'm still trying to remove the other ones... frown.gif

 

Pigmode, just out of curiosity, do you still have that gorgeous Pegoretti frame ?

You're trying to remove the pedals? Hope this helps. Some pedals need the dedicated pedal wrench, some need a hex (and maybe a dead blow hammer).

 

My Peg is pending sale today. Have a 2000 Serotta Atlanta coming in. Am also about one year out, on the queue for a custom steel frame from Dave Kirk.

At times it can be really hard to take off pedals. It's one of the things I take my bike in to the mechanic for. I have been able to get em off at times, there are times when they seem to be glued on. Lol


I just had my headset rebuilt and again, it's something that I like to have done right so I let the mechanic do it. There is of course the do it yourself crowd who will buy the tools just to do a bike procedure every couple years. I seem to save money by not buying tools and not breaking my bike trying to fix it.

I just bought a bike for $20, stripped it completely, didn't break anything in the process (probably a fluke) now I need to sand it bad, repaint it, and clean the crap out of everything... which is going to be a mission, but that's the idea, I'm happy doing this on a $20 bike, I would be terrified to even adjust the brakes on my specialized though....

I'm gonna take it to the mechanic. I've tried everything (including sticking the hex inside a one meter long steel tube...)

 

Sad about the Pegoretti... May I know why you're selling it? Did you get rid of it or is it just to try something new?

 Indeed. It's even more true for me since I have no income. If I break this one well... I break this one biggrin.gif

Cool !  Would you mind posting some pics after you're done with it?

 

What Specialized do you have?

Yup, I have a before shot, and there will be an after shot too, I was planning on taking pics of the process too, but I'm messy, in a cramped room, and I get caught up with it and forget about the pictures, so before and after will have to do :]
