Look Keo Sprint axle removal

Recommended Posts

I want to open up a set of Look Keo Sprint pedals and remove the axles. I remember reading somewhere that you need a special tool to do this and a look at the pedals seems to confirm this.

Does anyone know where I can get this tool (the LBSes I've asked just give me funny looks) or what I can use as a suitable substitute?

You need the tool. There's a few shops that will be able to open it up for you. Whereabouts do you live?

What about the Shimano tool?

It doesn't look like the Shimano tool will work. The tool looks similar but the teeth are a bit different. Try Tony Impey or Westdene...I'm sure they'll be able to open it up for you.

I made one of these tools myself out of 3mm tufnel plate(easy to machine and drill) Bit of a mission but if you have the tools it works 100%. Think I drilled an 18mm hole in the tufnel piece, then filed out the square splined teeth. From what I remember the pedals have a right and left hand thread there as well.

I don't really want to take this to the LBS to get the job done, so if I can't get the tool, I guess I'll just have to make one (might do laser cut steel, rather than tufnol, though).

MR Look, why is this tool not available to the public?

I managed to get some in. R30 a pop. PM if you guys want some.
