I finally tracked down an annoying drivetrain click to my Time ATAC XS pedals. There was noticeable play between the pedal body and axle so I took them apart last night. The axle rides on an outboard sealed bearing and an inboard sleeve bearing. The sealed bearing was in good shape but the sleeve bearing had worn such that the I.D. was about 10.3mm (should be 10.0mm I imagine) probably due to lack of lubrication. It appears to be made of plastic, maybe Teflon? Anyone know where to get replacements? I looked on McMaster Carr and various other sites and found no sleeve bearings (of any material) that were long enough (the bearing measurements should be: I.D.=10mm, O.D.=14mm, L=25mm). Would an oilite bronze sleeve bearing last longer than stock?
