Can anyone help with older spare parts?

Hi, What a great idea this forum is.  I'm glad to have stumbled across it whilst desperately seeking to find parts to fix my bike.  I've got a Trek that I bought c1994 and my caring partner decided that it would be nice to change the pedals, you know, get rid of the old plasticy ones for a model with greater grip for extra safety and all that. Unfortunately he wasn't aware of his brute strength and ruined the thread, so, now I can't have pedals at all.I use my bike every day to ride to work and…See More

P.S. Sorry I didn't notice your message on the 2nd! I didn't receive any notification for it.

We'll get you sorted out quick smart now :-)

Hi Kerri. Yep, definitely happy to help you out there.

The bottom bracket is the 'axle' of the pedals, if that makes sense. It's point around which your cranks turn. The spindle is the part that rotates and to which the pedals attach.

The pedals themselves will have a hole in them that matches the shape of that spindle. If the hold is square, it's a square tapered bottom bracket. I'm reasonably certain that your bike features just such a bottom bracket.

So all you need now is a crankset, which I have for you. I'll have to look at the part in question. I don't super that it's a particularly high-end component but it will probably match what you have there and certainly do the job for commuting et cetera.

Shoot me a message to let me know what area you're in and we'll get you sorted out.
