Assembled the bike, the threading on the right arm on the crankset got entirely stripped.
I just bought the 6KU Urban Track fixie crispy white.. I think is what it is.. and Im almost certain its the same assembly as this.. I purchased it from city grounds.. and while assembling it I tried to thread the pedal.. and it wouldnt.. I didnt force it.. I didnt cross thread it.. it already had existing burrs.. my left pedal will not thread the arm.. no matter what.. I put some of the chain grease on it that came with the bike.. still no dice..
My previous 5 star rating was incorrect.
It was my second time riding this bike, and my pedal came off. I looked inside the crank arm and the threading was annihilated. Only had the bike a few days, contacted customer service about a warranty claim, and was told by Johnathan Christopher that this was an error with assembly. I followed the instructions and video exactly, and installed both pedals on the correct sides. Very disappointed because I actually liked the bike overall.
Hello friends, the pedals are maked L and R for left and right sides of the bike-as viewed from the riding position. Each pedal is threaded opposite of the other, great care should be used at this point of assembly, and a little grease on the pedal threads is reccomended.
You will never have a problem if done correctly.
