Speedplay question

I have speedplay pedals (X2?) that are ten years old. Never a moment's trouble with them, but upon inspection, the hourglass shaped silver metal inserts are rounding off on the edges. I imagine that is why my shoes feel "looser" on this pair than on my newer pair.

Are these hourglass shaped thingys included in the rebuild kit?

Contact Speedplay directly with your question. They are very good with customer service.

BTW, call the "800" number and talk to someone directly. That way you get your answer immediately. They are real poor about replying to e-mails.

I know they sell replacement wings for those pedals. What sucks is that they're pretty expensive (for people with X5s you might as well replace the whole pedal when you add in the cost of a new cleat), but if you have X2s it's a lot cheaper than a brand new pair of pedals...
