Help Me Find these Tiny Ball Bearings?

The pedals on my red bike are shot and in need of an overhaul. I know this can be a frustrating job and there is a valid argument for not bothering to overhaul a cheap pedal but I'd rather salvage these pedals.But the bearing are super tiny and the these places don't have them:1. Blue City Cycles2. Joe Harris Hardware3. The hardware street on Halsted across the street from Nana4. The Home Depot - south loopI don't have a micrometer so I'm not sure the exact size, but here is a picture:…See More

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. I will definitely have to drop in. So is your bike a Schwinn then? I am a bit disappointed its not Nasty's Cycles but the real story is very good in its own right.

Does that say 'Nasty's Cycle' or 'Hasty's Cycle' on your icon pic? Or none of the above?

Thanks,
