I am in the middle of refurbishing a bike. I want to take the pedals apart for some much needed cleaning. Any advice?? They are normal pedals. Nothing fancy. One day I will go clipless but for now....
Can I use Lithium Grease to lubricate them???
Ok, so I gave it a shot. I didn't do the Loctite this time. (figured I can ga back and do that later.
1st off - The ball bearings were slightly magnetized. Does that tell anyone anything??? Was there not enough grease in there and the friction magnetized them or do they come like that??? Either way it was like hearding cats!
2nd - I may be missing some balls (hehe). When I took them out there was an odd # of them. Does one side hold more than the other???
I put them back together and they seemed to have a lighter spin, but felt "notchy".
