|Speed play 2's becoming hard to click in||wolfereeno|

|They're pretty new - about 700 miles on them. One of the cleats is getting really hard to click in. There's no crud or dirt caught behind the springs and they don't seem that worn. Any tips for losening the cleat up? Scraping the plastic area? Stretching out the spring? Lube?

|The pedal and cleat both require fairly frequent lubrication with a dry chain lube or silicon spray to minimize friction and reduce wear on the springs and "bow ties".|

|The standard treatment is to clean them out and add some dry lube. This is one place where something like White Lightning actually is a useful lube.|

|I strip mine down once a week and spray tham with McLube Sailkote (I also race sailboats). Not cheap but the stuff.

|I spoke to a rep at Speedplay because my right spring snapped twice this year. He said I should lube after every ride.|| |
