I swapped them onto the Galaxy from another bike only this week, well greased them and didn't tighten them up so there shouldn't be any problems removing them. Actually there won't be any problems because I just remembered I'll be boxing the bike up at home. I'll go with the option of buying a cheap spanner at the other end or asking nicely at a bike shop. One less problem to think about. I'd better be off to tape up my bars and wrestle the bike into the box. Thanks everyone.Cathryn said:It's an utter nightmare, pedals. We nearly weren't allowed on our flight to France for the beginning of our trip because we couldn't get the pedals off. I was close to crying.
My advice would be to get them loosened here in the UK and then YOU do them up to a tightness you can undo again. Then, before you fly home, get a shop to loosen them and do it again. That way, you'll always know you can undo them.
