I've owned two sets of LOOK pedals, my latest are the PP396 and I've had them for 2+ years now. Like all LOOK pedals, they creak where the cleat contacts the pedal. I get the usual black residue on the cleat and I have to scrape it off every third ride or so to keep them quiet. It's very annoying...
Does anyone have a sure-fire trick to making this stop, or at least go away for more than three rides?
I've played around with oil and such, but that didn't really help. I normally just use a flat-head screwdriver and scrape away on the two spots that it contacts, and sometimes the tip as well.
