One of my bike pedals fell off. How do I put it back on?
can you just clip it back on?
I was in the middle of using it. It's not broken. I was unable to just spin it back on.
Just screw it back in. Turn the collar above the thread. You ought to use a spanner to tighten it back up. Don't cross thread it!
You can't screw it back into the crank by turning the pedal itself, so you must turn the axle. There should be a "collar" that spins independently of the pedal, this is attached to the axle, it is there to allow you to turn it with a "wrench". It is easier to turn it by hand to begin with.
The pedals on the left side has a left handed thread!
