@lucille - Are you certain that you are turning the pedals the correct direction? Stand on one side of the bike (drivetrain side, for example) and say to yourself “back off”. That means you turn that sides pedal toward the back of the bike. What that also means is that when you’re on the left or non drive side of the bike, the pedal is reverse threaded & you turn it clockwise to get it off.

If I’m telling you something you know, then disregard.

I put the pedal wrench on, then use a rubber mallet to hit the end - it sort of breaks the seal, then I can remove pedal by hand.

Both bikes look great.
