My right hand speedplay zero pedal has developed an annoying click, which is most pronounced when I pull up on the pedal stroke, especially when climbing. I've regreased the pedal, tried swapping out the cleat, re-tightened all the cleat bolts, lubricated the cleat and it is still bloody there. The pedals are about three or four years old but I've always been pretty good at keeping them greased. Anyone got any experience of this?
Can you recreate the click using your hand on the pedal? That would eliminate the cleat.
Actually, if you swapped cleats already and it still made noise it's probably the pedal.
It could be that the butterflies are worn and so the cleats aren't engaging as much as they used to, so they're a bit sloppy and the 'click' is them moving a bit.
You can get bearing replacement kits for them. I've done a few swaps myself. Bit of a pain but doable.
Nice one. If I push down on if I’m just wearing normal shoes it clicks too, just not as bad. Maybe I’ll swap out the bearings then, or check how cost effective that is vs just replacing them as they are already quite old
