I saw your bike at Ray's this last weekend. The fork brings up some nostalgia.
yep, was there saturday and sunday. That fork is the one I got from you, after bleeding the damper/doing seals it works perfectly!

take it to your local bike shop they might be able to tap them

if they tap it, won't that make it too wide to fit pedals in?

Not necessarily, sometimes it's possible to just clean up the threads. Might be worth a shot.

I am a mechanic at a bike shop I do it all the time. Unless you have no threads left at all then you will need new cranks. But I would recommend a high quality crank set such as a Shimano Saint/Zee. BMX style cranks have a tendencies to strip out at the pedals. Or you put your pedals on the incorrect sides.

I've had great luck cleaning up pedal threads just by putting a pedal into the crank arm from the inside. Fast and cheap first step before taking it to a shop for a helicoil or what have you.

can anyone else vouch for this? Will it wreck my pedal or anything?
