We have 2 Propel Slayers and have used 5 times. This weekend the left pedal in both kayaks came off! One is so stripped I Cannot put the pedal back on the gear and the nut tha holds it on is missing. Can this be fixed?

The pedals and crank arms that run from the pedal to the Propel are basically bicycle parts. Any bike pedal with the same thread pattern will work. You do need to know that the left pedal is reverse threaded so you turn it the opposite direction that you would normally turn it to tighten it. I suggest that you take it back to your dealership and have them look at it to make sure whoever assembled the pedals did not strip them putting them on the wrong way.

If the pedal has fallen off and the spindle still remains attached to the crank arm, the spindle can be removed and a new pedal assemble can be attached. As mentioned, or to elaborate, you need to install/tighten by turing the pedal bolt in the direction you would rotate the pedals when going forward. The left side will attach/tighten counter clockwise, the right side clockwise.

 

If your boats are brand new its likely that the crank arms still have the L & R stickers on them, verifying they are in the correct orientation, as well as the pedals.

 

If you're not near a dealer, out of warranty a 9/16" pedal bolt is what you would need to replace.

The dealer is 300 miles away and the warranty has expired. So I just need a new bike pedal? Is it common for the pedal to come off? How could I have avoided it from happening!

Bring the propel drive to any bike shop and have them install a set of pedals of your choosing that have a 9/16" bolt pattern. They will know that the left pedal is reverse threaded. Have them put some LockTite on the threads when they install them. A good shop will not charge you for the install since it only takes seconds...just what the pedals cost. Hopefully you didn't actually strip the threads in the crank arm. That is a shorter crank than a standard bike uses so if it is stripped...and they will be able to tell you, you can order a new crank for Get:Outdoors.

Sorry about your pedal problems.  If you do decide to replace the pedals and crank arms, I have a set for sale in the Classified - Active section of this website.  The price is flexible.   http://nativeownersg...rms-and-pedals/
