So, on my ride this morning, I had a destination in mind. About 15 minutes in, my right pedal started to feel weird under my foot. Now, I had just replaced a bad pedal the day before. I decided to turn around and make the trip back home (over 2 miles away and I've got no tool to help me out). My pedal starting to get wobbly like it is coming unscrewed.
I try to overcompensate with my left leg doing most of the pedaling and it seems to work. I get about a 1/2 mile from home and I can still see the silver head to the pedal attached to the pedal bat so I coast along not worried about losing the pedal anymore.
I stopped at our mailbox in front of our house to get the mail from yesterday. As soon as I go to put my foot on the pedal, and my foot just barely touches the pedal - it falls off. the end that screws into the pedal bar is almost completely stripped. falls off right there in the street. I had to walk my bike the rest of the 60 feet.
