I switched out the pedals to send the squeaky XPEDOs back for replacement. The Shimanos I put on came with the bike (spd on one side, platform on the other).

The XPEDO right pedal spins much less freely than the left. I was surprised at how much difference there is. I guess thats what happens when bearings lose their lube or wear significantly.

Changing pedals seems to have made riding the bike a bit easier. I didn't think it would make a noticeable difference, but it feels that way during a ride. I'm riding the platform side of the temporary pedals, since I've given up on clipless.

I will be more tuned into pedal condition in the future. I paid no attention before, unless they were making noise.
