There comes a point in time when you need to change your mountain bike pedals—maybe you got a new pair, maybe you’re switching from flats to clipless
, or maybe you’re letting your friend borrow your bike. Whatever the reason, learning how to change your own bike pedals is a good skill to know…if only so you don’t have to pay a shop to do an easy, five-minute job.
Aside from your spare set of pedals, you’ll need a pedal wrench or hex wrench
(if there are no pedal wrench flats) and grease to get the job done right.
