Pedal Lockring Question

Recommended Posts

1st question: I have some fsa v drive extreme cranks that have removable pedal inserts, i presume these are the same thread size as the tensile pedal inserts?

2nd question: Is there a special 4 pronged tool to get these off? like a miniature freewheel tool? ive been trying all the methods so far to remove them with no avail.

blow torch

hammer and centre punch

lubed it etc

I wouldn't assume that unless you know for certain. I have no idea but I wouldn't be surprised if they were completely different.

i see what you mean, only i cant find any information on the fsa inserts, i'll wait for my tensiles to come and will try and compare, if they look totally wrong ill buy some, otherwise i might end up cutting the ol' fsa cranks off to get the inserts hehe

If tensile will replace broken cranks under warranty I wouldn't modify them at all. If the thread in the tensiles are already f**kered then this sounds like a very good plan to get the cranks going... If you can get pictures I'm quote curious as to what way they're fitted...

theyre unfortunately not the same size.

i bought the tensiles cheap as there was no inserts included.

therefore i presumed the ones off my spare fsa cranks would fit, saving me some pennies but they dont .
