New Speedplay Pedal Question??(3 posts)

New Speedplay Pedal Question??raynim
Jan 3, 2004 10:56 AM
I just picked up some speedplay x/2 pedals for my new cannondale. I noticed a slight grinding when i spin the pedal. Its not audible but I can feel it in my hand. Its right out of the box and I haven't put them on yet. They seem to be greased properly. Is this normal?

Thanks,
Ray

Had a similar experience with my new 7800 DA pedals. Give it a couple of miles and it should work itself out-if not return 'em. If you're not in any hurry to ride them you might just return them anyway for a new set, and a piece of mind.

I have the same pedals but did not notice any grinding. They were a little tight but other posts suggested that is the way they should be. It did take me several rides to get them properly adjusted under the ball of the foot. So far, 900 miles, the pedals are flawless. Have fun, RSG
