    Think were going to need more details. MTB or road? Twin or triple? Crank length? What have you broken again?

    its a mtb crank set triple. i have again threaded the pedal hole on the chain side crank arm. dont know why this has happened twice? this has rendered the crank arm unusable as you can imagine. the pedal has almost fallen off.
    cheers

    Well an guessing it's because the bearings in the pedal aren't running as free as they should so over time they loosed slightly over time and then when you peddle hard it stretches the thread. For next time make sure you tighten the peddle properly and many people use PTFE tape too to give a good seal. As for what to buy for £100 mark This
