    Default SPD-R pedal repairs.

    I have a set of said pedals that are a) old and b) in very good shape......except for the fact that the cleat retention clip(the big black plastic part at the back) is badly worn on the left hand pedal...to the point that float is no longer controlled.

    I have searched for this part with no luck, but have come into a pair of pedals that have good clips but the bearings are shot. So what I’d like to do is swap these clips over but not sure if this is actually possible if the springs have to be compressed etc.

    Anyone out there done anything like this before? Should I just spring for new pedals? ......

    These are spd-r pedals and they had a metal retaining clip. pd-7701 spd-r.jpg

    Do you actually have an old pair of spd-sl pedals (the current design with the yellow, blue or red tipped cleats)? If that's the case, I don't think they're worth trying to repair since new pairs can be had for such low prices these days.

    Yeah my mistake....spd-sl........ seems a shame when it’s just a plastic part worn out.....recycling ‘n all that.....but no real surprise.

    It would be a ton easier to just swap the axles around if you go the route that you propose and the pedals you pick up are the same model

    As the poster above stated, SPD-SLs are cheap and you can have new ones for a song...with a new set of cleats included. If you've ridden the old pair into the ground, treat yourself

    By the time you pay for the pedals and ship them...you're getting there

    Thought of that but shallow me prefers the worn out clip pedal as it’s carbon and the donor is the last metal version they made.......

    Maybe just get some New Ultegra
