comment Why are bicycle pedal threads' handedness left on the left and right on the right?
Thanks a lot. I didn't realize that there was a different force at work and that the bearing friction was negligible.

comment Why are bicycle pedal threads' handedness left on the left and right on the right?
@Mark: Right... but that friction is on the pedal. There is an equal and opposite friction on the bolt itself (or maybe not equal, as I don't know the mechanics of bearings)

@freiheit: Oh man! I didn't see that in the SE list. If a mod feels that this could be moved, move it!
