Can you adjust tension on Crank Brothers pedals?

How do you tell which pedal is which?

Look for “L” and “R” marking on axle or wrench flats. If no “L” and “R” marking are seen, use pedal thread direction to identify pedals. Left threaded pedals (threads sloping upward to the left) go to left crank. Right threaded pedals (threads sloping upward to the right) go to right crank.

Which foot do you clip first?

It doesn’t matter if it’s your right foot first or your left foot, just make sure it’s the same foot every time. By doing so, you’ll develop muscle memory, such that unclipping will become instinctive. That muscle memory also applies to restarting, meaning you’ll get quicker and quicker at clipping in.

There are different pad heights available, allowing riders to customize their pedals to work perfectly with their shoe of choice.
