What are pedals?

Why is alignment important?

Imagine if your shoes were on the wrong feet. It would feel weird, right? Well, the same goes for your bike pedals. When they're not aligned properly, riding can feel bumpy and uncomfortable.

Signs of Misalignment

Uneven pressure

If one pedal feels harder to push than the other, it might be out of alignment. Riding like this can make your legs tired quickly.

Clicking noises

Do you hear a funny clicking sound when you pedal? That's another sign that your pedals might need adjusting. We want our bikes to sound as smooth as they ride!
