How do I take the pedal crank off my bike?
Use a 15mm wrench to loosen the left pedal from the bike. Then, hold the left pedal and rotate the crank arm to completely detach it from the bike. Both pedals should now be completely removed. If you’re standing on the right, or drive side, of the bike, rotate the crank arm clockwise.
