I have a set of Truvativ Hussefelt Pedals which I would like to service.

Can they be user opened up to clean, lube or replace bearings?

If so how - do they need a special tool - all I can see is 4 small dimples place around the axle?

Many thanks

I haven't got round to trying, but it should be possible to get them open to have a look at least. Bugger if you have to bin them! Seen folks talking about making a special tool, but I reckon fixed in a vice would make things doable.

Good thinking - Thanks

I will see if I can find some old Circlip pliers and give them a go.
