    Look Pedals - Squeak

    I am getting a squeak from the cleat / pedal on my look pedals (PP515)

    Can I lube these? If so, what is the best type of lube to put on them considering the plastic cleat.

    Dont know if the rain on todays ride contributed, but I figure it did.

    It is definately NOT coming from the spindle, but rather where the pedal and cleat meet.

    I don't know what causes it, but I know how to fix it. Take your cleat and put a little grease (anything will work fine) on the back lip of it. This should stop the squeak completely.

    Moly-Slip on the cleat-pedal interface will quiet it down. It will make a dirty mess, too, but at least it won't squeak...

    I heard somewhere that furniture polish "spray wax" was good for this.

    Just an idea,

    Cheers,

    Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.

    Mtn biker trick... use Pam cooking spray. Dirt, etc., doesn't stick as much as with grease, oil, etc.
