A little dribble of lube all around the inner edge of the cleat (the circular bit that grips the pedal), wipe of the excess, and jobs a good ’un: So there we have it. The Weldtite Teflon grease gun will allow you to maintain (and prolong the life of) your Speedplay pedals at a fraction of the price of the official one.Do Speedplay cleats need grease?
Speedplay cleats are a bit more straightforward and don’t require a grease gun. They take a dry lube such that you don’t pick up dirt and grit as you walk on them (which would then abrade the moving parts of the cleat).Do Speedplay pedals need maintenance?
