Nicely made, but cheap and gooey bearings

I bought these pedals to use on my road bike for club rides. When they arrived, the pedals would not spin, because they were stuck in gooey thick grease. You need a special tool to take out the bearings, which I bought. The pedals use cheap sleave bearings, which evidently are bathed in thick grease to keep them functioning. Since I like the pedals to right themselves so they are easy to get into, I thinned and removed most of the grease with WD-40. The pedals still have grease and are well-lubricated, but now at lease they can spin and right themselves.

There is a reason these pedals are so much cheaper than the 105. They are marginally better than the off-brand copycat pedals. They are still a reasonable choice if you get them cheap.

Thank you for your feedback.

Value and Reliability

I'm not counting grams and didn't want to rebuild old pedals (yet), so 99.99 later and I'm clipping into crispy fresh springs and enjoying Shimano goodness without the cheap plastic wear surface of their truly entry level units. Bow before the fishing behemoth, salute the hegemon, Shimano is the ultimate bicycle industrial powerhouse.

Thank you for your feedback.
