Do I need to lubricate my SPD pedals?
Hi, My SPD cleats have been yanked out of position multiple times now. The cleat position will rotate on my shoe, causing my feet to be pigeon toed, and my heel to be really sore after finishing a ride. I've loosened up the SPD pedal tension so it's easier to release. I've also cranked down my cleats multiple times.
At this point I'm going to try a few things like sandpaper and locktite on the shoe/cleat assembly.
But I'd like to know if the SPD pedal needs to be lubricated as well.
I've had 1900 miles on them with no problems but then in the past 100 miles I've been plagued with problems.
Looking for a cheap fix because I'm trying to buy a new bike and will be getting road specific pedals.
