Vigurvänt pedals are compatible with 9/16” threaded cranks. Generally it means 100% of bicycles, but there is also less used 1/2” thread standard that is used on bicycles with so called one-piece cranks. It’s easy to check which ones your bicycle has if you compare the crank arms.

1/2” thread owners have still one solution, please search “pedal thread adaptors” for details.

Let’s relieve the upcoming Xmas stress and take a peek inside the box!

Beginning

October 21st, 2013

5th April 2012. How can two people get from A to B, if there is coincidentally only one bicycle around? Right you are – one can give a lift to the other on the rear rack! After 100 meters of riding, another question popped up: why the hell aren’t the pedals wider, so the passenger can keep the feet somewhere and at the same time “lend a leg” to the sweating friend behind the handlebars?

This exact thing happened to Kristjan Holm and Kaspar Jancis one fateful morning. The first sketch was drawn soon after!

questions

Later the same day – bizarre! – it’s not possible to buy this kind of pedals from eBay or anywhere else… Well, then it’s just the time for a small brainstorming!

6th April 2012. Raul Õitspuu in his workshop materialized the first prototype to test the principle.
