All pedals shown on this page use standard 9/16 x 20 threading. They fit virtually all bikes that have 3-piece or two-piece cranks.

If your bike uses old American-style one-piece cranks, you need the 1/2" x 20 thread size.
Those are listed on our American One Piece Crank page

Some older French bikes used the 14 x 1.25 mm size.
Pedals in that size are extinct, but you can tap the cranks out to fit standard 9/16 x 20 pedals.

Note: All pedals shown on this page are standard 9/16" threading.
They fit adult bicycles with three-piece-cranks

If your bike has one-piece cranks that need 1/2" pedals, either use the Pedal Thread Adaptors shown below, or check our page of Parts for Bikes With One-Piece-Cranks

 

9/16" to 1/2" Pedal Thread Adaptors $44.95 buy button

These adaptor bushings (made by the "Kneesaver" people) have a male 1/2"-20 thread to fit into your one-piece crank, and a standard 9/16"-20 female thread that will let you install standard 9/16" pedals, even modern clipless pedals.

These install with a 15mm pedal wrench.

"Kneesaver" Pedal Spacers $44.95 buy button

These are similar to the adaptors above, except they have standard 9/16"-20 threading on both ends. Some riders with unusual leg structure benefit from a wider pedal tread ("Q factor") and these spacers provide that. Available in 25mm and 30mm widths.

Toe-Clippable Pedals

(Except MKS Grip King)

  MKS pedals


MKS

MKS is Japan's major manufacturer of conventional toe-clippable pedals. These are very high quality.

MKS Grip King (Lambda) Platform Pedals 9/16" PD532 $54.95 buy button

Designed by Rivendell.

118mm heel-to-toe length makes this a great choice for cyclists who prefer to ride in soft soled shoes. 32mm platform width maintains good pedal clearance. Aluminum body, CrMo spindle.
These are not toe-clippable.

Bearings can be serviced/adjusted in the traditional manner.

MKS GR-9 Platform Pedals 9/16" PD535 $34.95 buy button

MKS pedals

Many younger cyclists don't know about platform pedals, and misuse the term to refer to various MTB/BMX designs. This is the only traditional platform pedal still in production. For use only with toe clips.

The large-area platform top makes this a great choice for cyclists who prefer to ride in soft soled shoes. The large flip-up tab makes getting into the clips a snap. Unlike older platform pedals, the flip-up tab still works even if you install pedal reflectors. Aluminum body, CrMo spindle.

Bearings can be serviced/adjusted in the traditional manner.

Width from arm = 85 mm Weight = 295 grams/pair.





MKS Pedal Dust Caps for GR-9/AR-2 PD560 $4.95 EACH buy button

These fit the MKS GR-9 and AR-2 pedals only.




MKS Sylvan Road 9/16" Pedals Silver   PD536 $34.95 buy button

MKS pedals

This is a knock-off of the classic Campagnolo road "quill" design. Aluminum body, CrMo spindle. Some people find the protruding "quill" at the outside edge uncomfortable.

Bearings can be serviced/adjusted in the traditional manner.

Width from arm = 102 mm Weight = 350 grams/pair.

MKS AR-2 9/16" Road Pedals   PD538 $33.95 buy button

MKS pedals

Similar to the Sylvan Road, but without the tall prong on the outer end, a better fit for wide feet.

Bearings can be serviced/adjusted in the traditional manner.

  • Width from arm = 103 mm
  • Weight = 295 grams/pair.

    This pedal also available in a Quick Release Version!



  • MKS pedals

    MKS Sylvan 9/16" Touring Pedals   PD540 $34.95 buy button

    These are longish "rat trap" type pedals. Aluminum body, CrMo spindle. A good choice for riders with wide feet.

    Bearings can be serviced/adjusted in the traditional manner.

    Width from arm = 115 mm Weight = 385 grams/pair.






    VP pedals

    VP 9/16" Touring Pedals PD1051 $18.95 buy button

    A decent knock-off of the MKS Sylvan Touring!

    The bearings are not very smooth. But they can be adjusted/serviced. The dust cap is removable.

    Notes: The MKS wrench does not fit this cap. The MKS dust cap does not fit this pedal.







    MKS Stream pedals

    MKS 9/16" Sylvan Stream Pedals   PD543 $34.95 buy button

    These are a cross between the Sylvan Touring & Track pedals.

    They feature a "rat trap" type cage that is narrow, like the Sylvan Track, for better clearance when cornering.

    Aluminum body, CrMo spindle. A good choice for fixie riders.

    Bearings can be serviced/adjusted in the traditional manner.

    Width from arm = 89 mm Weight = 348 grams/pair.







    MKS pedals

    MKS Spin-2 Flip Tabs   PD557 $10.95/pr. buy button

    Add-on flip tabs for pedals without, like the MKS Touring (above).

    They will mount to most pedals with reflector/toe clip holes.

    Sold as pair. Hardware included.

    MKS 9/16" Sylvan Track Pedals   PD544 $34.95 buy button

    MKS pedals

    This is a knock-off of the classic Campagnolo track pedal. Aluminum body, CrMo spindle. These are very nice, with excellent road clearance. (Track pedals are a minimalist variation on traditional clip-and-strap type pedals, with a cutaway outer portion for better clearance.)

    Bearings can be serviced/adjusted in the traditional manner.

    Width from arm = 89 mm Weight = 340 grams/pair.

    MKS Pedal Dust Caps $4.95 EACH buy button

    These fit most MKS pedals, including Sylvan Road, Sylvan Track and Touring models. They also may fit older Campagnolo and some Sun Tour pedals.

    They do not fit the MKS GR-9 nor the folding models.

    Pedals for Folding/Travel Bikes

    MKS AR-2 EZY Quick Release Road Pedals    PD539 $81.95 buy button

    MKS pedals

    Quick Release Version of the AR-2 Road Pedal. Thes have a nifty quick release fitting that works just like a high-pressure compressed-air coupler. When the pedal is removed, the coupler only protrudes 19 mm from the side of the crank. Includes drawstring carrying bag.

    (There's some confusion about the model name of these. Supposed to be "AR-2" but the type face used on the pedals makes it unclear whether the first letter is an "A" or an "R".)

    Width from arm = 105 mm Weight = 340 grams/pair.
    This pedal also available in a Conventional Version


    MKS Lambda EZY Superior   PD530 $119.95 buy button

    MKS pedals

    Quick Release Version of the "Grip King" Platform Pedal.

    Note: The "EZY Superior" QR system is not compatible with the MKS EZY pedals.

    A great upgrade for folder/commuters wearing soft soled shoes.

    Width from heel to toe = 118mm Weight = 438 grams/pair.
    This pedal also available in a Conventional Version
