    Hey guys, this might seem like a basic question, but does anyone know how to correct wobbly/loose/clunky pedals? They have some slight movement in all directions, which kind of makes it 'clunk' the crank as I pedal.

    More than likely they are wore out. If you are sure it is the pedals, oil up another set and put them on. They are left and right hand threads. Check the crank brg. tightness, I had a bike on which the bearing adjuster would come loose. Caused a clunk feeling and sound.
    I finally put a tiny tack weld on the edge and that stopped it from backing out.

    Hmm, I was unaware they could wear out!

    Surely theres like... some form of adjustment? I mean, I have another pair on an old bike, but thats an awefully big job just to fix a slight clunkyness. hehe
