J-B Weld a Bicycle Peddle to the Crank Arm


I have started riding a bicycle recently for exercise because jogging all the time is boring. I bought a Vilano kit bike and put it together. I must not have tightened the right peddle enough though because after about 200 miles, the peddle started to feel like it was shifting when I peddled. I would tighten it back up and it would go away for a little while and come back. Then after some time the peddle was visibly lopsided and hanging out of the crank arm and it wasn't long till it fell off.

Looking at the crank arm it was pretty stripped out and the threading on the peddle was messed up too. I figured I would have to get a new arm and peddle but thought I might try and fix it with J-B Weld. I looked on the Internet and found one other person who had done this [unsuccessfully], however it was with a mountain bike and I am just ridding a street bike and don't intend to put hard stress on the peddle. I cleared off the peddle and arm with rubbing alcohol and then placed some tape on the back of the arm to seal the bottom of the arm hole. I mixed the J-B and glopped it into the arm hole then pushed the peddle down in. After that I took some rubber bands and wrapped them around the peddle and arm to secure the peddle while the J-B dries. I waited for two days (J-B requires one day to set) before I decided to take it out for a test run.


It doesn't work. Maybe if the threads weren't so stripped but even then it's doubtful. I set out on my bike planning an 8 mile ride to test the peddle. About 2 miles in I run into a friend and we went a little further past the end of the trail. We went somewhere between 12-15 miles. About three blocks away from my apartment I felt the peddle get loose. I look down and can see the J-B cracking. Then within seconds the peddle comes right off.
