Recently acquired me a set of these for cheap but they need a service. I think its a 9mm socket but cant get it to fit in. Anyone else have these pedals?

Haha! Why are they in the box?!!!

The 8mm socket i have here is far too small but the 9mm i have here wont go in the cap hole. The 9mm i got from work fits but is too big for the nut so im guessing its 8mm but mine doesnt fit?! Will see what 8mm ones work has.

Far too slow with the build.

Is there an inbetween imperial size that might work at a squeeze? It might just be that the socket wall thickness is getting in your way.

Hmm thats a good point, they are canadian after all. Not sure what system they use. But i would have though that they still use metric for a worldwide product.

Yeah my 9mm socket was too thick but the one i got from work wasnt but my 8mm wont go over the bolt.
