No. It won't wreck your pedal. It will potentially fix the threads unless there is absolutely no threads left to fix. It's more likely to help if it's cross threaded, not if the threads are stripped out though.

alright, should I do it with the pedal for that side, or the opposite side?

you should have a professional mechanic do it to be honest.

I thought it was full murdered but I see the rainbow spokes. I dig.

Yeah there's a bunch of full murdered builds out there so I was going for something like but different. If the others are murdered, this is attempted homicide.

for my next build I was thinking of doing either black with oil slick, which I love, or black with bronze, which I also love

Yo dudes, anyone with a 2020 Transition PBJ care to share what they think of it? Looks great and at 6'2'' the long option is appealing but wondering how much it sacrifices some agility, and with a slightly slacker head angle than a lot of dj frames I'm torn over it. Seems tough to find available steel frames that aren't mega short.

Been out of the hardtail game a while and mostly wishing I never sold my Cryptkeeper

It's not super quick steering jib oriented bike. But it can be done once you get used to it. I am a huge fan of that frame. I'm 6'3" and it's awesome for jumps and pumps. I'd recommend it to anyone in the market for a DJ over other options.

Funny how that works. I'm in a similar boat, looking at the PBJ and wishing I bought a cryptkeeper.

I love this Vimana it really makes me miss mine. It's actually hilarious to me how opposite mine was ,too. Lime green frame with green/blue everything. Mine was hideous by comparison
