Keep in mind that when you install the pedals, the right side crank arm has right handed threads and the left side is left handed threads. In other words, when you screw them in, both sides twist forward; conversely, when removing the pedals, both twist toward the rear of the bike. The reason for this is so the pedaling action always tends to tighten the bolts.

as long as the exercise bike uses standard pedals.

Thanks for your input. I have someone on my job that is selling his spd pedals for $20.00. I will continue going to spin class. I would like to have a backup using my spin shoes as the weather gets bad. I like in the midwest. Winter is rough!!

Absolutely...I put SPD's on my spin bike at home. The crank arms on your spin bike just have to have the same threaded holes to insert and tighten your pedals like a normal bike crank does. Pretty sure most cranks use universal threading. Mine did. Good luck.

I don't see why not! Isn't a spin bike pretty much just an upright stationery bike with a flywheel? : )

This might be a dumb question, but, I am going to ask anyway. Can you put spd pedals on an upright stationery bike? Thanks.
