Hello,
I recently devastated my right crank pedal while trying to screw the left pedal inside. I have tries to screw the right pedal after but it only screws in an angle.
So i probably need new right crank.
I bought my thorns 7 years ago (Thorn 110/74 PCD Triple Solo Alloy Crankset - Silver) and the length of the crank is 170mm.
Can you please tell me what replacement crank i need please? I see in your site you only have 140mm and 14mm
Regards

nil desperandum, take it to a cycle shop and see if rethreading will work first or have them bush out the thread. Have a look at the video

I went to the shop and they said I need to replace the right crank.
Can you link me to the crank I need at sjscycles?
Thanks

Oh, dear...Things Happen. The same result can occur if the steel pedal spindle threads gall to the aluminum crankarm.

You're correct -- currently, SJS Cycles only lists right-hand crankarms in the smaller sizes. It would be worth contacting them to see if they expect replacements in 170mm soon.

Short of that, SJS Cycles currently stock complete replacement chainsets (both crankarms, hardware, and a set of mounted chainrings) in 170mm and *black* color at a current price of 119.99 Inc VAT here:

Very best of luck and all condolences. Please let us know how you come out.

Welcome to the Thorn Cycling Forum, Arielos.

Best,

Dan.

Hi, we can't order any more silver ones as the factory is unable to produce them any longer. We now sell these https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/cranks/150-thorn-10464-pcd-triple-crankset-mk2-black/ i'm more than happy to sell you these, a ring, bolts and bottom bracket with a slight discount if required to replace your arm.  Alternatively if you send the right hand crank to me I can repair the thread with a Heli-coil and return for 15.

All the best,

Dan. (...who is waiting for "the rest of the story")
