"Gloat on bro!
It took just under an hour to overhaul both pedals. It was not fun exactly, but I'm glad I did it. Each pedal used 28 bearings! I guess a lot more fell out than I had originally thought when I opened up the first pedal. I…"
"Unusual service from Mc Master Carr. I use them all the time. They always confirm the order with an email immediately, follow up with the shipping inoice (including shipping cost) and deliver promptly. At work if I order before…"
"3/32 it is:
The shiny one is from McMaster-Carr. They sent me 100 for a bit over $12. I cannot recommend their online ordering experience - it never listed the shipping cost, I never got an invoice despite requesting one, there was no…"

"You are going to need to find the exact size of bearings in order to replace them and have your pedal work properly.

Thanks for your interest, Tony, and your offer. When I get info on how to set up a presentation (Paul, I guess), i'll be happy to have your help. You are my friend, too once I figure out how to do that. Peg
Oh, very cool, thanks for the link. Ive heard mythical folklore about 'the guy who designed the Paramount' from Chicago but did not realize the shop was still in business.
