  • Mechanical help(!) – Opening Shimano DX flat pedals
  • Ok, so I found a tiny bit of play in my DX flat pedals, and want to know if I can tighten up the bearings inside before they become damaged. I looked at the shimano tech doc for them, and they look like they’re just bearings with lockrings in a similar fashion to hubs. Instructions seem a bit thin on the ground for them, so I decided to just have a go.

    However, I’ve failed at the first hurdle… I managed to loosen the (20mm) nut that’s flush against the pedal body, but when I try to actually take it fully out, it gets stuck against the section with the spanner flats. So, how am I supposed to take them apart, seeing as the only way to access the inside appears to be that nut on the outside?

    Anybody?

    No?

    The 20mm “Nut” holds the axle and bearings, the pedal body screws onto the 20mm “nut”. So undo the “Nut” fully and the body will come away and you will be into the bearings.
