Pic's don't lie...Do my Speedplay's need a rebuild ??t-moore

Got a taste of asphalt this weekend. Is my pedal fine, or do I need to send it in for a rebuild. I went out for a ride today, and had no problem with the pedal. Problems normally show themselves far far away from home....

If it works fine, ride it. If the scuffed up pedal body bothers you, Speedplay sell replacements. Just becaused you crashed it doesn't mean it needs to be rebuilt.

No. I have a friend with some that look like that and he has been riding them for a year now.

If the axles are straight and locations where the cleat engages aren't torn up, you're probably fine. From the picture, it looks like purely cosmetic damage to me. Maybe try to smooth the plastic pedal surfaces with some sandpaper in case any of the rough stuff is rubbing your cleats or base plate - might cause premature wear if the scratched surfaces are in the right spot.
Thanks for the responses..I'll sit tight for now...t-moore
