Well, after a year of silence I'm back. Almost forgot I even had the bike until I stumbled onto it in my storage unit. So, I dusted it off and started riding again.

The saddle still killed me for longer rides. So I bought the Bell Memory Foam seat. I haven't used it on an actual long ride but my first impressions are that it will be way more comfortable.

I also purchased some Wellgo Pedals from BlueSky. I ran into a problem when I went to install them tonight. I only had a 15mm wrench and it seems I needed a larger 16 or 17mm wrench to fit. Can anyone tell me the definite size I need to remove? I tested the 15mm on the Wellgo's and it fit. Would love to get these on ASAP.

I'm looking forward to more upgrades in the near future. I'll try to update some pictures soon.

Welcome back...i would suggest a little bike tool set..Comes with pretty much everything to work on it..Pedal wrenches tend to be pretty narrow to fit between the pedal and crank arm...Ill send you a link to a tool kit i have..Makes life alot easier when working on a bike.

Probably your 15mm wrench is slightly too wide for the flats on the spindle. A pedal wrench is like 1/8" thick

A 15 will work. But, you need a thin wrench sometimes. A pedal wrench does make things easier, though. Check the end of the axle on the threaded side. There may be a spot to use an Allen wrench.

This makes me think I'm doing something wrong. Because, my 15mm wrench was to small. The open end would not fit on the flats. To make sure I'm right..the bolt/screw is in between the pedal and the crank arm, correct?
