    Candy SL Pedals

    I have had my Candy SL pedals for a few years now and it's seems the right pedal has developed a lot more float then the left. This leaves me a little uneasy when doing a standing climb, thinking my foot will pop out at any time. I have put in a rebuild kit but that didn't solve the problem, any suggestions?

    Sounds like you unclip with your right as a matter of course. Same for me, except I do it on the right. As far as I know, a rebuild kit is for bearings, seals and perhaps some other internal parts. However, I don't think that should have any bearing (no pun intended) on the degree of float. Float is basically how far you can rotate your foot laterally before the clipping mechanism starts to be engaged. My guess is that your right cleat may be worn. Compare the left and right cleats to see a difference and then compare to new ones at your local bike shop. By the way, I use Quattro's and my wife uses Candy's for our respective road bikes.

    How many miles on your cleats?

    I actually unclip with my left foot and I just replaced my cleats not to long ago. I'm just wondering if maybe I should just go ahead and buy another set of pedals. The right pedal feels fine, just a tiny bit of float but the right one is definitely much more.
