    Doh I have forgotten a basic. 😳

    I am fitting SPD pedals at the weekend and before i try loosening the LH thread one the wrong way, I thought i would check which pedal is the left hooker?

    Cheers Gunner!

    Ahh I remember now, “lefty left”! 🙄 😆

    I was only teaching my daughter how to remember ordinary thread directions last week by teaching her “Righty Tighty, Lefty Lucy (Loose -y) 😆
