    what is the difference between Mcmaster self-locking socket and standed socket set crew for pins. I am not sure which ones i need for pedals, if you need to know they are the 5050xx pedals and im looking to buy better pins for them i know the sized just not the defference between the socket? :help:

    Uhh.....take a pin to speciality nut and bolt out in Goleta and they'll get you some.

    They aren't easy to just "find" online or at shops it seems. Best bet is a tool supply place (osh, home depot, speciality) and go to the metric sections and get some. They might be cheaper if you figure out what size you need and ask if they'll sell you a quanity discount (like if you need 20 pins per pedal see if they'll sell you 100 to get them cheaper). Sometimes places will do that.

    dmr make terrorpins but you might as well just go to a hardware shop.
    long pins are good n all if you like to wear out your trainers every 4 months

    try www.mcmaster.com They sell everything, although they don't always have the best prices, if it's in their catalog it's in stock and will be on your doorstep tomorrow morning.

    OSH or Speciality Nut and tool would have them, Home depot has everything except what you need half the time (for small bike related stuff)

    Mcmaster has them if you know the size you need.

    If you look hard enough you'll find they sell what you need to make it possible I'm sure.
