Good repair shop - clicking pedal/crank

Post by maptx on Wed Aug 17, 2011 6:13 am

Hi All,

The first question, can anyone recommend a good road bike repair shop in the Ktown area? Seems the few bike shops I've managed to stumble upon seem more geared to recreational riding and commuter bikes, and lack some of the kit for road bikes.

Second, if you got time, my problem. In my right pedal/side of the crank I've got what started as a minor click and has now become a consistent nuisance. It's more pronounced with more pressure on the crank. It started just when my right foot was at about the 11 o'clock position (as viewed from the side), and now seems to happen at both the 11 o'clock and 1 or 2 o'clock position. I thought it was the crank for the longest time, but on the last ride it grew louder and I think I could feel the vibration in my right foot (which is really the only evidence I have that it's even on the right side). Pedal maybe? I've got Look Keo's. I don't think it's anything loose in the shoe cleat, as it continued even after I recently swapped cleats.

Any help on either question is much appreciated!

-Mark

Google "Look Keo Creak" and you will find lots of results of the pedals creaking. It could also be something as simple as the pedal not being tight though.

A pair crank brothers Candy C pedals (which I had used for about 33.5 or 4 years without ANY sort of servicing/maintenance) started to do exactly that. About 2 km after it got really pronounced, the pedal came right off the spindle, still attached to my shoe, and all the cracked remnants of the innards came dribbling unceremoniously out.

How old are the pedals? How has your maintenance on them been?
