    solida cranks?

    soo... i was working on this older road bike. it needs pedals. the threads in the crank arms look relatively good, but i can't get any pedals to thread in. what's up with that? the cranks have "SOLIDA" stamped along the side. i think this is a french company.

    regular 9/16" pedals seem to thread in for about half a turn before they bind up. 1/2" pedals are way too small. is there some non-standard thread pitch for road bike pedals that i am not aware of? i'm reasonably sure that these do require 9/16" pedals, but no pedals i've tried will thread in...

    web searches have yielded basically nothing on this topic.

    help?

    answered my own question. check this out:

    French-thread Pedals
    Most French bikes sold in the U.S. used standard thread pedals:
    9/16" x 20 TPI (14.29 mm/.527" x 1.27)
    But older bikes made for the French market used a slightly smaller thread:
    14 mm x 1.25 (.551" x 20.32 TPI)
    If your cranks are made for standard-thread pedals, a French-thread pedals will fit in, but be very loose and will be unusable. It is not possible to put a standard pedal into a French crank without considerable violence.
    It is possible to re-tap French cranks to take standard pedals.
