Pedals (Step 3 of 4)
In this step, we will install the pedals.
The black bolts on the pedals are labelled "R" for right and "L" for left from the perspective of a rider. They are not interchangeable.
IMPORTANT: THE RIGHT PEDAL IS RIGHTY-TIGHTY, *BUT* THE LEFT PEDAL IS LEFTY-TIGHTY. (THIS IS A SAFETY FEATURE THAT PREVENTS THE LEFT PEDAL FROM LOOSENING AS YOU RIDE.)
Using your hands, tighten the pedals to the cranks by holding the pedals and turning the black bolts as shown.
Once you have tightened the pedals by hand, use the provided silver wrench to tighten all the way.
That's it for pedals! Let's move on to the front wheel.
