I have been swapping my shimano trail pedals between a variety of bikes this week. This afternoon, I tried to put them back on my old bike (on to Deore cranks) but I cannot get any purchase. I have cleaned and lubed pedal axle and crank hole, checked L & R (!!) but when holding the axle I get no feeling or purchase when I back pedal (the technique used on the other bikes).
Any ideas for a numpty with no pedals at the moment!?!?!
