Pedal end-caps, likely to get a universal fit?

Hey all

I have some Onza Hox or H.o.x as they are known, and the other day I noticed that the end cap had been coming loose. I had no tools with me, and I ended up having a fall and forgetting to tighten them when I got home. Anyway, went out on a ride today to realise I had lost one of them. I would just leave it if it were only superficial damage, but the pedal has about 5mm movement side to side, and I managed to find some here:

I'm located in the UK, so I doubt I will find a specific Onza type, and I want to get them ASAP. So would I be likely to be able to buy generic end caps, or other types? Or do I need specific ones.

Cheers

  • if you've got lateral movement in the pedals then the bearings are probably shagged.

    You could buy those and try them, might get lucky. If not then new pedals i'm afraid.

    Hmmm, I have only had them for about 6 weeks, but saying that I did have a few issues with my clipless shoes and had to really force my foot out of the pedal. Beginner in every way so I had a few issues with most things LOL. So maybe it possible in that space of time.

    The only way of knowing if the pedals are busted is by getting a new end cap then? So would I be able to maybe find some other branded end caps that might fit? I intend to try and go to my local LBS, but wanted to see if it was worth the trip.

    Thanks
