Schrodinger's Pedals?

Consistent with Wahoo's reply to my query; see my post "Wahoo's Response," #9 in this sequence.

Maybe, like the virus (and bboston75's cat), Speedplay products are both available and unavailable.

No problem

They’re available in an alternate universe.

Nick, I don't know if you've run into any issues with your Syzr pedals or not, but I had a couple yesterday that I thought I'd mention.

At one point during our MTB ride, I found that I couldn't clip into the right pedal. The reason was that the end cap that holds it together had fallen off and the pedal body was coming off! Luckily, I found the end cap and reinstalled it, and we were able to continue riding. I checked the end cap on the other pedal and it was loose, too.

I've also been running into issues with the angle adjustment screws in the cleats loosening, allowing rotation that I don't want.

When we got back, I had a little "Loctite party" with the pedals and cleats. Hopefully, everything is secure now.

Brian - the first pair of Syzr pedals I bought and installed, I noticed when I next cleaned the bike that one of the small Phillips-head grub-screws that cover the grease ports was missing. I emailed Speedplay and they sent me a couple of spares, and with the subsequent Syzr pedals that I've purchased, I check the tightness of the endcaps and the grub-screws before installing the pedals, and I've had no further problems with anything loosening in the two or three years now that I've had the pedals on multiple bikes.

As for the cleats, I Loctite the adjusting screws as a matter of course when I first install them, and they haven't come loose. I use Loctite 290, applying a drop with a pin, as it is a wicking threadlocker that can be applied after the screws are in place and adjusted as desired.

I'm glad to hear that you haven't had any issues.

I checked the Syzrs on my gravel bike and the end caps were tight, but I pulled them and put some Loctite 242 on the threads, just as a precaution. I used it on the adjustment screws as well. The factory thread locker had flaked off and wasn't doing anything. If for some reason that doesn't hold, I'll try one of the wicking products like 290.
