    Dura Ace 7810 Pedal Noise

    My Dura Ace 7810 Pedals have a terribly annoying creak. I'm sure it's them since the noise goes away when I switch pedals. I've taken the axles out and packed the pedals with grease. I've also taken out the pin that holds the clip mechanism and packed that with grease too. They will get quiet for a ride, then back to the exact same creaking. Any ideas how to quiet them down?

    It's possible that it's more in the cleat or shoe to pedal interface, than in the pedal itself. Try riding them using normal uncleated shoes and see if the moise persists. If not, try lubing the cleat area. I've had good results on my (non-Shimano) road pedals rubbing a paraffin candle on all the points of contact. You can also use zipper wax, or even a crayon.

    A squeaking cleat/pedal interface used to be a chronic problem with Look pedals and, since the Shimano pedals follow the original Look design, that may be the problem here too.

    +1 on the parafin. I always keep a block of parafin in the house for things like cleat/pedal interface squeaks.
