How to remove the foot straps

Some people prefer to use the bike without the pedals straps.

The top and bottom pedal halves snap together. You can remove the straps whether the pedals are attached to the bike or not.

Follow the instructions below to remove the straps.

Step 1:

Insert a flat screwdriver into one of the slots. Rotate the screwdriver downward to pry the halves apart. You should hear a pop as one of the snap-fittings comes loose. There are 4 snap-fittings holding the pedals together.

Step 2:

Insert the screwdriver into the 2nd slot and repeat step 1 until you hear the pop.

Step 3:

Now insert the screwdriver into the gap on the side of the pedal. Twist the screwdriver to pry the halves apart.

Step 4:

Slide the screwdriver to the right and twist again. Repeat until you hear the snap-fitting on the side release.

Repeat steps 3 and 4 on the other side of the pedal.
At this point you should be able to pull the halves apart.

Step 5:

The straps are pressed onto the posts as shown in the picture on the right. Just pull up on the ends of the straps to remove them.

Step 6:

Press the halves back together.
