I apologize if this is OT, but due to the classic content of TA as a company, I felt it was appropriate.
I recently purchased a brand new set of contemporary TA piste pedals direct from the importer. The box and bag are marked 9/16 x 20, standard BSC threads. When trying to install these pedals into marked BSC cranks, I am having some difficulties.
I attempted to install the pedals onto the following arms, all marked BSC: NOS Mavic 631 cranks, used sugino super comp, used campagnolo super record, new dura-ace pista. I retapped the suginos for fresh threads, and still no luck.
I then attempted to install the pedals onto the two french-threaded cranksets I had lying around the shop, a TA pro 5 vis and a stronglight competition steel cotterless. these would also not thread in.
I have installed many pedals, both new and used, to many cranks, both new and used. I have never had this problem before.
Has anyone else had any similar problems with these pedals?
