I bought a new pair of Keo Sprint pedals last week, installed cleats and pedals, and took them out for their first ride yesterday morning. I noticed a squeak (of plastic on plastic), and a feeling of horizontal motion in the left pedal. I tightened the cleats on the shoes all th e way down, and I still feel the motion and hear the squeak. It's not the float in the pedals, although the squeak does change depending on the angle of my foot. Any ideas as to what could be causing the looseness in the left pedal? The right pedal snaps in tight and is silent. Thanks.

I was going to suggest you have floating cleats but judging from your post you have 0 degree play cleats?

argh. no. The cleats have float. It is, however, not the float that is causing this. The motion is in a direction parallel to the bike. Both pedals float, obviously, and the right one does not squeak, and it does not move in a parallel direction to the bike.

oh I see, very odd :s sounds like cleat is too small or the pedal is slightly too long.. manufacturing fault? maybe try measuring the lengths between the two contact ends of the cleats and compare with the right one then same with the pedals..
That's all I can think of
