Shimano M324 Pedal Fail 75 miles
I have been fighting a creek and pop on my road bike all weekend.....replaced the chain ring bolts (one was broken) still made the noise...then all of a sudden the right pedal locked up!! Just to be certain i swaped out to a platform and no more noise. A little miffed that my $80 pair of pedals lasted 2 rides. Any input?
I would return them to where you bought them, probably a defective bearing, once the bearing failed, it trashed the cup, causing the pedal to lock up when the next bearing came into play.

Yea it is a little odd that the pedal didnt feel weird when spinning by hand....only made noise under load. They were new and had plenty of lube....

My 324s have thousands of miles on them without incident. I plan on a thorough clean and regrease next spring!
