I bought some MKS Sylvan Touring pedals recently, and after the first week I started hearing 'clicking' sounds, so I re-packed the bearings. Then after a week I heard clicking, and re-packed them again.
When I re-pack, I'm making sure the pedals are tight enough that there's no play, and loose enough so they spin freely.
Question: Why am I getting the 'click' sound so soon after a re-pack? Have I been like 98% perfect, and just need to get it at 99% to be set for a year? Is it that finicky?
Question: How often does someone typically re-pack pedals on a daily commuter bike?
Question: I use a Phil Wood & Co. grease, should I use something else?
I hope I'm doing something wrong as this is my first experience with re-packing pedals --- I've always used sealed cartridge pedals. These pedals are fantastic otherwise (they are BIG and the same on both sides of the pedal, exactly what I want) but if I have to re-pack every month, even with 99% good packing, then what's the point?
