A good bike shop (!) can install a heli-coil and restore that crank. At least as long as it's not Metric threading (still possible for sure but no one here stocks French threaded helicoils)

Took my ASC equipped Viking Road/Path out for a 45 mile spin on Sunday. Got 9 miles into it when I heard/felt an "thunk." Next thing you know my left leg is spinning away and my right is dangling there with a pedal and toe clips attached. Stripped out the threads on my Stronglight 49D! Lyotard 460 pedals. How it happened is beyond me.

What are my options?

It was a rough 9 miles back.
