How to Take Off Eggbeater Pedals


Manufactured by Crank Brothers, Eggbeater bicycle pedals closely resemble their namesake. The pedal works in conjunction with a compatible cleat fitted to the bottom of a cycling-specific shoe. The pedal body features four possible entry points for the cleat. The cleat and shoe attach to the pedal, allowing the foot greater contact with the pedal platform. Eggbeater pedals can be removed for cleaning, adjustment or replacement.

Things You'll Need

  • 6 mm or 8 mm Allen key
  • Lean the left, non-drive side of the bicycle against a wall or other sturdy surface.

  • Rotate the drive-side pedal forward to the 3 o’clock position.

  • Attach a 6 or 8 mm Allen key to the head of the pedal spindle, depending on your particular Eggbeater model. The head of the pedal spindle can be found on the inside of the crank arm. The pedal spindle attaches to the crank arm.

  • Hold the opposite crank for leverage while rotating the Allen key counterclockwise to loosen the Eggbeater pedal from the crank arm. Unscrew the pedal fully once it is loose.

  • Turn the bicycle around and lean the right, drive-side against a wall.

  • Rotate the left, non-drive side pedal to the 3 o’clock position.

  • Attach the proper size Allen key to the tip of the Eggbeater pedal spindle.

  • Hold the opposite crank arm for leverage while rotating the Allen key clockwise to loosen the pedal. The left, non-drive side pedal is reverse threaded, requiring an opposite loosening action. Once the pedal is loose, remove it fully.
