Gear Question

Will these pedals fit on old (1979)...

Will these pedals fit on old (1979) Stronglight cranks? I have an old Peugeot PX10-LE I'm trying to get into riding condition.

Responded on

Pedal threads are identical in all old and new cranks, unlike bottom brackets.

I have a 1974 PX10 with Stronglight cranks. I bought new pedals after being assured that all pedal threads are the same. Well, they're not all the same. However, the pedal side on old French threads is bigger than the modern standard, so you can make a one-way transition to modern threads by having the crank side retapped. Worked for me. Most good bike shops should have the tap.
