    I have an old steel frame that I've turned into a fixed gear. I wanted to replace the Look road
    pedals with some cheap ATB pedals so I could use Mt bike shoes and walk a little easier when
    commuting. The bike has a Campy NR crank circa 1984, pedal hole threads 9/16 x
    20.I bought some cheap Nashbar ATB pedals, but the axle is too large, it seems. Can anyone help me
    out here? Are there no new ATB pedals that will be compatable with that crank? Any ideas for
    solutions? I don't want to spend a lot, but I just spent $65 having the frame repaired, then
    another $50 for some Diadoras on sale and $20 for the pedals--which I'll return. (The BB axle,
    also Campy, is a 70 SS and any other cranks would have to work with the Campy BB. Everything on
    the driveshaft JUST fits with absolute minimal clearance). Thanks in advance for any help. John

    Just take the crank to a good LBS and have them chase the threads of the crank with a standard pedal
    hole thread chaser set-then the pedals will go in. Cranks from this period had 'odd' thread pitches,
    but 9/16, and a chasing will fix them. had the same problem with some proFit pedals on a Super
    Record crank.
